I am a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist and lecturer in psychotherapy (Dublin City University), with a group analytic therapy practice in the Healthy Living Centre in DCU (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a small individual psychotherapy and supervision practice in West Dublin (the individual practice is currently closed to new appointments).
I trained as a clinical psychologist through UCD (University College Dublin), as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist through ICCP (Institute of Creative Counselling and Psychotherapy, Dunlaoghaire), and am currently training as a group analyst with UCD/St.Vincent's School of Psychotherapy. I am a chartered clinical psychologist (specialising in psychotherapy) with the Psychological Society of Ireland, and an accredited psychotherapist and supervisor with IAHIP (Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy). I have had the privilege of working with clients in various settings over many years, including the public health service, the prison service, psychiatric services, private practice, and community mental health services like the Healthy Living Centre in DCU.
If you would like to explore if group therapy would be the right path for you, please contact me and we'll organise individual sessions to discuss this together. You will see in the brochure below that many kinds of concerns are suitable for group therapy, just as for individual therapy. Particular advantages of group therapy are the opportunities it offers to experience connection, support and solidarity, respectful feedback and challenge, and to learn from fellow group members' experiences as you work together. Many of our challenges in life involve difficulties in our early or current family, social and work relationships, and a safe and contained therapy group is a valuable setting to explore and work through these issues to find greater self-awareness and confidence.
