Registered Family Therapist, FTAI, ICP, EFTA
I have been working as a Family Therapist since 2012 both in the Health Service and in a voluntary capacity. My background is in Mental Health Nursing. I have worked in the Mental Health Services both in Ireland and the UK, for twenty years, holding holding specialist nursing posts (CNS) in Self-Harm and Perinatal Mental Health, ie. working with mothers and their mental health during pregnancy and post-natally.
Through my work in the Health Services, I have worked with both individuals and groups in managing anxiety, depression and anger. I have also worked in the area of Domestic Violence with Laois Domestic Violence Service and also completing an internship with the Women’s Therapy Centre, Dublin. I have an MPhil in Women’s Studies from Trinity College.
