I'm an accredited family therapist for over 20 years working face2face in Sligo, but also online. I love my work and meeting new people, being curious and creative together.
I work with all kinds of combinations of family members. Sometimes just individuals on their own come along, sometimes parents with children. Couples also attend or even adult brothers and sisters. When I'm working with adolescents I ask for a parent to attend first
For those of you who like to know the 'science bit', I use a few different approaches depending on the situation. For instance, a Brief Therapy Solution-Focussed approach, Narrative, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
I've spent many years putting these tools in my toolbox - let's work together at putting a few more in yours.
Pain that is not transformed will be transmitted
The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives
We accomplish many things through our words
You're fully wrapped up in relationships out of which you come and in which you participate. To look at yourself as a single being is absurd. The new way to look at it is, 'I'm connected, therefore I am. '
The force of the desire diminishes the more we observe it
I want to help people be less afraid....
people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm not join their chaos.
