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 primarily, but not exclusively, with Addiction and Trauma and am passionate about Recovery Maintenance i.e. providing strategies and behavioural skills to enable lasting change. Trauma, abuse, poor self-image and shame are some of the internalised unresolved issues that underpin trauma and addiction. The long-term recovery journey must involve discovering healthy ways to deal with those issues.
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
