I have over 10 years experience working in the area of mental health and have been fortunate enough to be of assistance to many people over this time. I have learnt the importance of being present with people and I never assume to know the answers. I really believe that a strong therapeutic relationship that encourages the right questions to be asked and provides the right conditions can help people access the inner resources to heal, grow and learn.
 
I believe you are the expert in your life and even though you may not know it, you have all the answers within you. Unfortunately sometimes life can make accessing these answers difficult. Trauma, mental health issues, addiction, work and family pressures can all impact our ability to connect to our inner wisdom and happiness. I have found through personal experience that talking to a trained professional in psychotherapy who is kind, caring, non judgmental and emotionally attuned can support the process of being able to listen to ourselves and work towards living a life that is free of suffering. 
 
Background
I was born in Ireland and qualified initially as a mechanical engineer. I became interested in psychotherapy through personal growth and engagement in my own journey. This led me to gaining a masters in youth and community work and a bachelors in psychotherapy. I moved to Canada in 2014. I come from a lived experience of addiction, living with family members impacted by mental health, and a family background of physical violence. It was through my own personal therapy that I realized how helpful therapy can be to change unhealthy patterns.

I have trained in several areas of humanistic and integrative psychotherapy including dialectic behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, narrative therapy, emotionally focused therapy, motivational interviewing, family systems therapy, couples therapy, transactional analysis, mindfulness integrated cognitive behavioural therapy and gestalt therapy.
