Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Welcome! I’m glad you have made your way here. My name is Marie and I am an accredited Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist (Irish Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). I’m a native English speaker and work with adults for whom English is their first language or preferred second language.
An integrative approach to Psychotherapy allows therapy to be flexible and adaptable, in line with your personal life experiences, needs and expectations. Ultimately, the aim is to promote healing and facilitate wholeness and self-awareness – ensuring that all levels of your being and functioning (mental, physical, and emotional) are maximised to their full potential. I very much encourage collaborative self-exploration to help you become aware of why you feel the way you do, and to find new and more helpful ways of thinking and behaving.
How It Works
- I work with adults experiencing emotional problems and maladaptive thoughts and behaviours, including those suffering with addiction and trauma. I am passionate about Recovery Maintenance i.e. providing strategies and behavioural skills to enable lasting change, no matter what the presenting issue is. Trauma, abuse, co-dependency, anxiety, depression, poor self-image and shame are some of the many internalised unresolved issues that prevent people from navigating life successfully. Long-term, the recovery journey must involve a deliberate process of self-discovery, and cultivating the right mental attitude to live a happy life, despite the ups and downs of everyday emotions.
What I Offer
Whatever your reason for seeking counselling or therapy, I believe in a non-judgmental and transformative way of working that is tailored to meet and fulfil your particular needs, at this time of your life. In my experience, lasting positive change really is possible
