I completed a Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy in Dublin Business School in 2008, where I achieved first-class honours. I was also awarded the privilege of Student of the Year for my final year thesis. For sixteen years I have worked in private practice supporting clients struggling with a wide range of life’s challenges.  I completed my clinical supervision training in 2021 and am a fully qualified supervisor with IACP. I  also completed a Certificate in Sport Psychology and Performance in IADT; as many problems we face can often emerge through the prism of the sport we love first. I am in the process of completing my Diploma in Integrative Adolescent Psychotherapy (IACP accredited) and will be in a position to work with adolescents aged 12+ from September 2024.

Prior to training and working as a psychotherapist, I initially studied Commerce, Accounting, and a Masters in Business Studies, Human Resource Management, in UCD. I worked as a management consultant for seven years before joining a banking organisation where I worked in Human Resources for five years. I am fully accredited member and supervisor of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) and an accredited member of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP).

I am married with three adolescents/young adults, love sport, nature and walking my dogs.
