Therapy

Welcome to The Mindfulness Clinic, where I specialise in evidence-based therapeutic approaches tailored to meet your unique needs. I employ proven methods such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Approaches, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, as well as Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling.

As a counsellor and therapist, I am well-equipped to address a spectrum of challenges, including emotional distress, anxiety, low mood, depression, negative thoughts, rumination, anger management, bereavement, and addiction. I am qualified and trained to work with agoraphobia, panic, phobias, trauma, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), bipolar, borderline personality, and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

My practice is inclusive and welcoming to individuals across the lifespan, including adults, adolescents, neurodiverse and LGBTQIA+ clients. Together, we can embark on a journey toward healing and personal growth.

The Mindfulness Clinic has four main areas of activity

  • Mindfulness Training
  • CBT, Psychotherapy & Counselling, and Adolescent Counselling

  • Professional Training Programmes
  • Supervision, Deliberate Practice and Clinical Excellence

Gerry Cunningham

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). My training extensively covered Mindfulness-based approaches and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, including a PG Diploma in CBT and a Masters in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, both from the University of Oxford. As a qualified clinical supervisor, I specialise in reflective practice, clinical excellence, and deliberate practice. Additionally, I underwent training as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Play Therapist at the University of Cambridge, earning an M. Ed. in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling.

My professional training comprises workshops and courses facilitated by some of the leading names in mindfulness and CBT, such as Jon Kabat-Zinn (MBSR), Mark Williams, John Teasdale, and Zindel Segal (MBCT). I have received extensive training from the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre, The Beck Institute in Philadelphia with Aaron Beck, and undertaken mindfulness training through the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University.

The Mindfulness Clinic is based at Herbert Street, Dublin 2, providing tailored treatment approaches in CBT, counselling and therapy for adults and adolescents. I am currently pursuing research interests at the University of Oxford and training at the International Centre for Clinical Excellence, Chicago.
