Counsellors in Cork
Therapeutic Approach

I use a Humanistic, Integrative approach to counselling with the help of Relational Psychotherapy, Gestalt, Person Centred, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, Visualisation, Meditation, IFS, EMDR, CBT, Body Awareness, Reality Therapy and Personality Styles, along with various NLP and Life Coaching tools. 

Using these methods, my aim is to help you find a means to work through and hopefully heal or resolve any area of conflict and access healthier self-awareness and a diverse range of resources to achieve this and get back in the driving seat of your own life again.

What is the difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling usually explores an immediate issue such as a family or relationship conflict. It is often short term and not as thorough or extensive as Psychotherapy, which further explores the client's thought processes and way of being in the world.  The skills and tools of Counselling and Psychotherapy can overlap or become integrated according to the client's needs. A client may be suffering from depression or anxiety after being made unemployed. Counselling may explore this as one or two specific issues. Psychotherapy may further explore the client's overall well being and functioning on a deeper level especially if underlying or related  issues become more apparent as well.
