In my work as a psychotherapist and coach, I work from a Humanistic and Integrative perspective, with Psychosynthesis as my primary influence. I hold an MSc in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy from Dublin City University, and a Coaching Certification from the Psychosynthesis Center along with my Nursing Registration (Obs & Gynae), and my Interfaith Minister’s training.
My coaching model is unique in that it explores the relationship with the Self (the spiritual aspect of our make-up), as well as the self (the personality), and how we relate to the world. A key step in the process is to acknowledge yourself as already whole and complete. This encourages self-compassion, and trusts you to be able to distinguish your own truth from beliefs and interpretations that have been passed to you. You will begin to identify and gently explore your deep-seated primal wounds, sub-personalities and survival mechanisms; and begin to practice how it might feel to live in your whole being and essence.
Enormous power to choose. You will feel more at ease with your family and friends, your colleagues and clients, and everyone else with whom you come in contact, and soon you find yourself relating to your world- and the people in it- in a much more authentic and grounded way.
The basis of all good coaching lies in the relationship- it all begins by getting to know each other. How we behave with each other has both the potential to soothe, heal and make therapy feel safe, and also to disrupt your normal way of being just enough for change to occur.
