o Anxiety Management
o Human Givens Psychotherapy
o Trauma Recovery
Right from being a child I was always interested in people: how they work and what makes them tick. When I was young, my mother seemed very unhappy and it was my greatest desire to help her with her difficulties. Sadly, that was before I had the skills and knowledge that I have now and I was never able to do that: she died when I was 24.
My desire to help my mother and my love of Psychology lead me to the work that I do today.
Some of the forks in the road in my own journey:
Deciding to take the "road less travelled" by choosing, after my psychology degree to train in a little known therapy (Human Givens Therapy) because I wanted to become the best therapist/coach I could be for my clients and I didn't believe that the conventional route would take me there.
At a turning point in my own relationship, rediscovering the work of Psychologist John Gottman (who has studied relationships for 40 years) and applying his research findings to my own relationship with great success.
I studied Psychology at Bangor University (University College of North Wales) before gaining a distinction in HG Psychotherapy in 2002. I hold a BA (hons) in Psychology and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Human Givens Psychotherapy. I have worked with people under pressure and in distress for more than 30 years.
I am a founder member of MindFully Well and am married with two children (www.mindfullywell.ie)
