About

Working as a psychologist has allowed me to help many adults, adolescents and couples deal with challenges and difficult periods in life which affect physical, mental and emotional health. I qualified as a counselling psychologist from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. Initially I worked with secondary school and university students, before joining the Health Service Executive (HSE) helping young people addicted to drugs and also adult survivors of childhood trauma. After this I worked for over six years for the NHS in London treating adults with various mental health difficulties.  I have a keen interest in Aviation Psychology and am a member of The European Association for Aviation Psychology, working with crew of major international airlines.

I consult and comment on psychological matters for magazines and also on radio and television. My work with my clients is collaborative and I believe in treating every patient as an individual. I treat adults and also adolescents (age 13 and above with parental consent).

Some of the psychological approaches I use in my client work include:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
  • Interpersonal Therapy for Adolescents (IPT-A)
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Person Centred Therapy

I am affiliated with the following governing organisations and work by their code of practice and ethics:

  • Chartered Psychologist – BPS (British Psychological Society)
  • Associate Fellow – BPS.
  • Registered Counselling Psychologist – HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council)
  • Member – EAAP (European Association for Aviation Psychology)
