Welcome

I’m Maureen and I’m passionate about helping people to live a better, happier more fulfilling life.

Perhaps you:

  • Have a particular problem (big or small) you need help with;
  • Need support during a difficult time;
  • Feel all is not well with you;
  • Require some coping techniques and skills;
  • Want to be heard;
  • Want to do personal development.

I am a warm, empathetic and compassionate person and I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can work on your problems. 

I feel truly honoured, at being allowed into your lives, to be trusted with your difficulties, fears, struggles and challenges.

My role is to support you through these times, to journey with you, to enable and empower you to figure out the best solution for you; to steer you towards acceptance, understanding, resolution, triumph and success.

“One of the most valuable things we can do to heal one another, is to listen to each other’s stories”

-Rebecca Falls

If any of the above applies to you, contact me and we can start your unique journey together.

Best wishes,

Maureen

About Me

I have an honours degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Cork Institute of Technology. I am an accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).

I work with people aged 18 and over, and with couples.

My approach to Counselling & Psychotherapy is Person Centred (Humanistic); I believe you are the expert in you. I also believe that you have an inherent ability to heal and grow, to be the best possible version of you. I see it as my role to journey with you, to shine a light in the dark corners and to use my knowledge of human emotional development to help you make sense of your inner world and lived experience; while also teaching some coping skills and tools where necessary.

I tailor my approach to suit each individual. I believe the client knows best and I work at your pace and to the goals that you set.

I have a special interest in Mindfulness which is about living in the moment, learning to self-regulate and reconnecting to the wisdom of our bodies. I have a deep interest in how our personality and lived experience, shapes who we are, and I am committed to helping you better understand, how you came to be you.

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”

-Karl Jung

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Q – What is the difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy?

A – Counselling is more short term, usually to solve a particular problem or for support during a difficult time, e.g. I want help to manage my anxiety.

Psychotherapy is more long term, where we do deeper work, to change aspects of our coping mechanisms/personality/self beliefs/ways of being in the world, e.g. I want to understand why all my relationships start off so well, but then I begin to feel trapped.

Q – Who goes to Counselling /Psychotherapy?

A – Absolutely anyone can go to Counselling/Psychotherapy and for a whole range of reasons. Some go during a crisis or with a problem they have been struggling with for a while. For others it’s a feeling that all is not right or perhaps for personal development and growth; and some go to be heard, to have their story witnessed and honoured.

Q – How much does it cost?

A – Please contact me as price can be negotiable depending on circumstances.

Q – How do I make an appointment?
