My motto in life is 

'Do something everyday that scares you'.  


I started off my working life as a Probation Officer, working in a young offenders prison in Dublin. Through my work with the inmates I saw what a difference having somebody to talk to can make to a person's life. I was hooked on the power of the one to one session and retrained as a counsellor, gaining a First Class Masters in Counselling from University College Cork.

I am a Senior Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My membership number is 572426. I work within the BACP’s Ethical Code of Conduct. I have an enhanced DBS check and Professional Liability Insurance.
