About Me

I have always been interested in the body mind concept and a more holistic approach to healing which includes focusing on the body as well as the mind. As a young woman I travelled to India regularly and became interested in Eastern Philosophy and the yoga tradition. I began to see how the body is inextricably linked with the mind and how they both simultaneously influence the other.

I moved from Dublin to Clare in my early twenties after been struck by the profound beauty of the county. I became interested in becoming a therapist after I myself experienced the benefits of therapy and wanted to be able to reach people in the same way that I was met and thus able to bring greater awareness and choice to my life.

My professional psychotherapeutic training was done with Tracht Biodynamic and Integrative Foundation Course based in Kinvara, Galway. It’s emphasis is on a humanistic and integrative approach and it also incorporates a significant amount of bodywork. This approach differs from other forms of psychotherapy as it also incorporates a body based emphasis which offers a holistic approach to therapy.

As a psychotherapist I appreciate that in the role of therapist I too constantly am evolving and changing as my clients grow and change. My greatest teachers are my clients whom never cease to bring me new opportunities for growth.

I received my higher diploma last in 2017 and I am a fully accredited member of IAHIP (Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy).
