GET TO KNOW ME
I've had a passion for getting to understand as much as possible about the human experience and how our life experiences impact us and help us evolve.
I'm an experienced therapist, qualified in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Time-Line Regression Therapy & NLP (certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy, Time-Line Therapy Institute and American Board of NLP respectively), as well as Life Coaching (ICF Certified Coach Practitioner) and Dr. Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry approach.
I've travelled quite a bit and have practiced at Synergy Integrated Medical Centre, Dubai and at the Paul Goldin Clinic, Ireland, working with thousands of clients on a variety of subjects including stress management, relationship difficulties, overcoming blocks, fears and phobias, skin and eating disorders, self-harm behaviours, smoking cessation, weight loss, and others. I've also worked with many large organisations as part of their people development and wellness initiatives including: Emirates Airlines, Samsung, Bvlgari, KPMG, eBay, PayPal and the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE), am certified in Psychometric testing, and am a qualified facilitator and trainer, certified by IATA and the Kirkpatrick Partners.
My trauma-informed approach guides clients in gaining awareness of why they are engaging in certain behaviours, attracting particular circumstances and situations, and subsequently helps them heal, rebalance and align with their true selves.
Training with Zen Buddhist monks in South Korea and Shamans in South Africa, Peru and the Netherlands, has brought immense value to my own personal development. I've also participated in many meditation retreats, plant-medicine ceremonies and personal development trainings and conferences all around the world.
I'm super passionate about supporting people uncover their true selves and realise their full potential and have worked with many large organisations as part of their people development and wellness initiatives.
Supporting teens in crisis is also an important element of my work and I'm certified in Managing Deliberate Self-Harm and help teens understand their emotions, reframe thought patterns and develop coping mechanisms to deal with the pressures of school, peers and social media.
Plant Medicine Work
I've also loved getting to understand more about our energetic nature through the study of Reiki, Theta Healing & Shamanic Healing.
My current professional interest falls in the field of Psychedelic Assisted Therapy. Having co-facilitated plant-medicine retreats in other countries, I've seen how important the preparation and integration work is.
With more and more countries accepting the vast, evidence-based research on the use of psychedelics in the treatment of depression, addiction, trauma-healing - as well as the 'betterment of well people', there is a growing interest in psychedelic tourism, microdosing, etc.
For those people who choose to work with psychedelics, my sessions help to support the preparation and integration elements of their healing journey. I also do Microdosing Coaching for people choosing to microdose with psilocybin to ensure they are getting the most out of their experience, in the safest possible way.
