Communication-Focused Therapy

My extensive experience in working with clients covers a broad range of mental health conditions, including

Over the last two decades, I have successfully helped many people with various mental health issues and in difficult situations. I work in private practice in Dublin or remotely over Zoom or Skype.

Working With You

Beginning a course of therapy early can help get you back on your path towards a more fulfilling and enjoyable life. Your therapy should be for and about you. It should reflect who you are and how you want your life to be.

Your therapy should be individualised to your problems, personality, needs, values, interests and expectations. My training is in the two major schools of psychotherapy, psychodynamic (psychoanalytic) therapy and CBT. They are empirically tested and used worldwide. Further, I can add approaches from various other recognised schools of therapy, systemic, Gestalt, integrative and imaginative. I am also happy to discuss my own approach, Communication-Focused Therapy®.

Listening, Understanding, Helping

Important to me is to understand your needs, listen with empathy, and help and support you in finding greater happiness and success in your life. With you, I adapt your therapy to your individual needs and issues.

You can contact me and make an appointment conveniently on the internet by visiting the Online Scheduler.

I look forward to hearing from you.
