So why choose me?

Choosing a counsellor is an important decision, as the quality of the relationship you have with your therapist is a key factor in determining how successful your therapy will be. I place great emphasis on building a compassionate and trusting relationship where you can be free to be open and honest. As well as that …

I’m passionate about what I do. I believe that the work I do makes a real difference to people’s lives. I feel both fortunate and privileged to work within the area of counselling and psychotherapy. I work hard to give my clients the best possible service by undergoing constant personal development, peer supervision and remaining up to date with what’s happening in my field.

I’m qualified for the job. I’ve completed a four-year training including a Certificate in Counselling Skills through NUI Maynooth and a Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Turning Point Training Institute in conjunction with DCU. This course is recognised by the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP), the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP) and the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP). My additional qualifications include an MA in Town and Country Planning and a BA in Geography and Anthropology. I’m a fully accredited member of the IACP.

I’m experienced. I’ve been working in private practice in counselling and psychotherapy for the last fifteen years where I have seen a diverse range of clients and presenting issues. Additionally, I’ve worked in the voluntary and public sector for more than 15 years, giving me a broad range of experience and perspectives.


“About a year ago, I found myself in a situation which appeared like a badly designed crossword – none of the answers seemed to fit. The more I wanted to find a solution, the more problems arose. My frustration grew, every day was a struggle and I felt overwhelmed by thoughts of the past and future. The initial decision to seek counselling was not difficult, but the anxiety of having to open up to a complete stranger stayed with me for a while. Looking back, I realise how the safe space and gentle guidance slowly helped to calm my mind and accept what was outside my control. I can’t say enough about how patient and the caring Eimear was. Counselling felt like one of the only supports open to me at the time”.
