I am a fully accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). I work from a humanistic and person-centred stance, but I also incorporate many other therapeutic models in my practice. I believe in working collaboratively with clients as I believe the client is the expert in their own life stories and experiences. I have a broad range of experience in working with individuals in a one-to-one and group setting, and I have gained extensive clinical experience working for organisations such as One in Four, Pieta House, The Men’s development Network, Heads Up and St. Aengus Community Action Group.
I have focussed my professional clinical work and research on a broad range of male mental health and well-being issues and I have worked in a wide spectrum of recognised industry leading clinical settings that focus on male mental well-being. These include specific domestic abuse and sexual abuse perpetrator programmes, suicide prevention and support, sexual abuse survivor support, substance abuse recovery support, tailored male community development support, peer support training as well as designing and delivering bespoke workshops on male identity and male emotionality for male centred support programmes.
It is through this breadth of experience, coupled with over a decade of individual therapy work with men, that I have recognised a need to create an innovative approach that might offer any man seeking support a more accurate and suitable entry point.
