I am a practising psychotherapist in Dublin and for those in difficult to reach locations I provide online counselling.  I am an accredited member of IACP.

My Approach

In my approach to counselling and psychotherapy I strive to offer:

  • A warm and compassionate presence
  • Non-judgmental listening and feedback
  • A safe and supportive space to facilitate a process of self-exploration
  • Appropriate humour and not taking ourselves too seriously
  • Mindfulness training and practice
  • Confidentiality and privacy
  • A place where your full self, with its shadows and idiosyncrasies, is welcome

I draw from training in several different theoretical approaches, all integrated through a focus on mindfulness. These approaches include:  humanistic and integrative psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT,  Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Gestalt.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Dublin Business School and also a Master’s Degree in English from University of Warsaw (Poland). I offer psychotherapy in English and Polish.

I have been practising mindfulness for over 10 years and done extensive research on the effects of mindfulness on the therapeutic relationship. I integrate mindfulness into my therapy work.

I work in Oscailt in Dublin 4 and  Orwellness in Rathgar providing counselling and psychotherapy to adults of all ages struggling with a variety of issues, e.g. depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, relationship issues.
Previously I worked for 9 years in education.
