I came to study psychotherapy at postgraduate level (Dublin City University) from an academic background firmly rooted in the humanities (MA in Spirituality, BA in Philosophy). I was extensively trained in Mindfulness-based approaches and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (PG Diploma in CBT, University of Oxford, Masters in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, University of Oxford). I am a qualified clinical supervisor specialising in reflective practice, clinical excellence, and deliberate practice. I trained as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Play Therapist with the University of Cambridge (M. Ed. Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling).

I have attended training with some of the leading names in Mindfulness and CBT including Jon Kabat-Zinn (MBSR), Mark Williams, John Teasdale and Zindel Segal (MBCT), Aaron Beck (Cognitive Therapy and the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University.

I have a private practice at The Mindfulness Clinic, Herbert Street, Dublin 2.  I provide tailored treatment approaches in CBT, counselling and psychotherapy for adults and adolescents.
