About Counselling and Psychotherapy

What is counselling and psychotherapy?

Counselling is the practice of exploring areas in your life that might currently be causing you difficulty or upset. Psychotherapy is a deeper process of looking at past events or relationships that may be affecting your present life that you would like to understand or address, so that you can make fulfilling choices in the present and future.

The Humanistic Integrative framework that I work from allows me to be with you in a compassionate, empathic, relational way as you negotiate this process, whilst meeting your unique needs.

Do we meet face to face?

Yes, we are able to meet in person by practising safe social distancing and following government guidelines, relating to Covid19.

I am also able to offer both telephone and on-line counselling if this feels more comfortable. Please get in touch to find out more.

Who do you work with?

I can work with any individual age 13 years and over. 

What kinds of things can you talk about? 

The challenges we face are not exhaustive but I have experience working in the following areas. Please get in touch to talk more. 

Abuse                                                                Personal Development

How often would I need to come for counselling?

I offer weekly, hour long appointments. The number of weeks that you would like or need will be agreed together in our initial session as we explore the level of support that suits you best.


How much does counselling cost?
I offer a free 30 minute initial conversation over the telephone to explore how we can work together. I then charge €40-€60 per hour long session and ask that any sessions cancelled within a 24 hour period are paid in full.  


I offer a sliding scale for payment, so please get in touch to talk this option through.

Where do you work?
I am currently working in Skibbereen for face to face appointments.

Please contact me to find out more or to make an appointment.

I look forward to hearing from you.
