It's good to talk...
Whether you are struggling with your mood or emotions during pregnancy or the postnatal period, a parent with concerns about any aspect of your child's mood or behaviour, or a teenager who wants to talk to someone outside the family about something that is bothering you, I am here to help.
Based at the Novara Centre in Bray, I provide clinical psychology sessions and parenting advice and support to individuals and families, as well as group support, for a range of social, emotional, behavioural and relationship difficulties.
Clinical psychologists are able to support individuals to have a better understanding of the difficulties that they are currently experiencing. In order to facilitate this process I place a high level of importance on the therapeutic relationship and provide a space which allows parents and young people to explore their difficulties in a safe, supportive, confidential and trusting environment.
I work as an integrative clinician, which means that I tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of the families I am working with. Reflective of my broad training I have drawn influence from a number of schools, including cognitive-behavioural techniques (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), person-centred counselling, narrative therapy, systemic and family therapy, mindfulness approaches, solution-focused therapy, positive psychology ideas and psychodynamic interpretations. I also use a range of tools (e.g. questionnaires, workbooks, drawing, modelling, toys) in my work with children and young people.
The Novara Centre is very conveniently located along Bray's beautiful seafront. DART and bus services are just two minutes walk away, providing easy access by public transport, and ample parking is available outside the door (30c per hour).
Please contact me if you have any questions about the services I offer, or would like to speak to me to arrange an initial consultation or to make a referral.
