I have been a registered clinical psychologist for 30 years and have worked in private practice, NGOs and various residential/clinical treatment settings. I have also done teaching and training in various academic settings and still run workshops and training courses (see below).

Through decades of working with Addiction I have been forced to look deeply into myself and I understand how difficult it can be to share one’s vulnerabilities with another person. I provide a safe and affirming space where clients can feel free to explore all parts of themselves. I see every client/couple/family as unique, with a unique balance of strengths and vulnerabilities and aim to help them uncover their strengths while also addressing their challenges. I am constantly inspired by the courage and emerging wisdom of clients who change their lives regardless of their personal histories or circumstances.

I specialise in the following areas:

  • Supporting people in recovery from addiction and other chronic illness
  • Eating disorders
  • Personal/Spiritual growth/Life transitions
  • Couple, Family and Group therapy
  • Co-dependence and Self esteem
  • Trauma, Grief, Anxiety and Stress
  • I also run courses, experiential workshops and retreats on Meditation (including Mindfulness practice), Personal/Spiritual growth, Couple Relationships, Co-dependence.
  • I offer team-development and training for various Health organisations.

Experience and Training

I have 30 years of practice experience and apart from private practice:

  • Have decades of experience working with addiction and recovery in outpatient, residential and community settings. I worked as co-founder and clinical director of Stepping Stones Addiction Centre for 12 years before returning to private therapy practice in 2009
  • Have considerable training and experience in Couple, Family and Group therapy and also offer training and supervision in these areas
  • I´ve done various internationally accredited trainings in Psychotherapy including EMDR and EFT (especially helpful for trauma) and completed an internationally accredited 2 year training in Focusing Orientated Therapy in 2011. The latter offers ways of tapping into the bodily-felt wisdom about psychological and interpersonal issues. I believe that the body often holds clues to direct our psychological healing.
  • I am an accredited Appreciative Inquiry facilitator. AI is a strengths-based approach to working with individuals, couples/families, communities and organisations. It is designed to help individuals/couples/organisations uncover the “positive core” of their lived experience, enabling them to tap into the sometimes hidden resources needed to create new possibilities for themselves.
  • With Claire Breen I run an 8 week course in Mindful Self-compassion (MSC). The practices and attitudes taught on this course have been well-researched and shown to have significant benefits on psychological wellbeing. I use some of this work in my private practice.
