Description of Work and Background:

I graduated in 2013 from the Irish Gestalt Institute after doing a clinical placement with Student Counselling Service at The University of Limerick. Prior to this, I qualified as a counsellor in 1992 and established a counselling service for families of people with dementia in Bristol.

My work in the health care sector spans over many years: initially as a general nurse, then a psychiatric nurse and later, a trainer of health care professionals in the mental health sector.

I have a European Certificate of Psychotherapy from the European Association of Psychotherapy, a Master’s in Gestalt Psychotherapy and a Certificate in Supervision from the Gestalt Institute of Ireland. In my practice I work with individuals and couples, helping them address a range of emotional and psychological difficulties.
As a supervisor I endeavour to create an open and compassionate space where supervisees feel supported to become courageous enough to see how their vulnerabilities and processes impact their therapeutic work.
Informed by compassionate practice and aware of the impact of shame in my own experience, I endeavour to create a non-shaming relationship and space where supervisees feel safe-enough to bring their real-world concerns, issues and doubts about their practice.
I regard it as important to cultivate a supervision culture where it is okay not to always have the answers and, where appropriate, to arrive at clarity through engagement with uncertainty and the vulnerability of not-knowing.
I am mindful of ethical and best practice norms of IAHIP and work effectively with supervisees to arrive at a settled place that is congruent and authentic for the supervisee and is aligned with their career stage.
I work both face-to-face and online. My website is
