Curious about Counselling?

When I meet new people and tell them I am a psychotherapist I am always blown away by how interested people are. I get so many questions about the process and what it’s like. I am passionate about my work so I would happily talk about it all day. It often brings my own awareness to the fact that not everyone feels that way about their chosen career.

If you have ever had any interest in counselling then I recommend you pursue that. Foundation courses are a great way to get an introduction to the work and theories behind the process.


There are always courses available but I would recommend ones starting in the next couple weeks in Swords, Newbridge and Dublin City Centre.

In the course you will gain an understanding of:

  • Psychoanalysis
  • Person Centred Theory
  • Reality Therapy
  • Lifespan Development
  • Transactional Analysis
  • Behaviour Therapy
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Cognitive Behaviour
  • Therapy Counselling Skills

You will also have the opportunity to add more positivity and self awareness into your own personal life. Thanks to personal development and experiential learning you can increase your self esteem, gain a better understanding of mindfulness, improved boundaries, learn about group process and more.

When: Swords – Fridays starting, 31st October – May, as well as 5 full Saturdays over the duration of the course.
City Centre – Mondays starting, 3rd November – May, as well as 5 full Saturdays over the duration of the course.
Newbridge – Thursdays starting, 6th November – May, as well as 5 full Saturdays
over the duration of the course.
Time: 7 – 9:30 pm
Cost: €850
