Frequently Asked Questions

How can psychotherapy help?

In therapy you will find a safe, confidential space where you are listened to at a deep level. It is a place where you can talk about issues to process what is going on for you.

 

By giving yourself the gift of psychotherapy, you can gain a better understanding of who you are and your journey in life.

 

Being heard, listened to, and by talking out our experiences, we gain clarity , insight and make connections that help make more sense of what is going on for us.

How long is each session and what is the cost?

Each weekly session is 60 minutes in length.

There is a charge of €60 per session and payment is made at the end of each session. Payment is made by cash or PayPal.

Note: Fortnightly sessions are not available as I believe weekly psychotherapy sessions are necessary to maintain momemtum.

What treatment approach is used?

I work in a holistic way in the sense that I base by work on the integration of body, emotions and thinking. Woundedness, suffering and healing, all have emotional, physical and cognitive aspects.

My approach is humanistic and integrative, incorporating psychodynamic, existential, somatic and Gestalt psychotherapy. I work within the attachment theory framework.

Awakening to the Trauma of your Past
John O Donohue

For everything under the sun there is a time. This is the time of your awkward harvesting, When the pain takes you where you would rather not go,

Through the white curtain of yesterdays to a place
You had forgotten you knew from the inside out;
And a time when that bitter tree was planted

That has grown always invisibly beside you
And whose branches your awakened hands
Now long to disentangle from your heart.

You are coming to see how your looking often darkened
When you should have felt safe enough to fall toward love,
How deep down your eyes were always owned by something

That faced them through a dark fester of thorns
Converting whoever came into a further figure of the wrong;
You could only see what touched you as already torn.

Now the act of seeing begins your work of mourning.
And your memory is ready to show you everything,
Having waited all these years for you to return and know.

Only you know where the casket of pain is interred.
You will have to scrape through all the layers of covering
And according to your readiness, everything will open.

May you be blessed with a wise and compassionate guide
Who can accompany you through the fear and grief
Until your heart has wept its way to your true self.

As your tears fall over that wounded place,
May they wash away your hurt and free your heart.
May your forgiveness still the hunger of the wound

So that for the first time you can walk away from that place, Reunited with your banished heart, now healed and freed,
And feel the clear, free air bless your new face.
