I work in west Kerry with people with a range of difficulties and use a compassion focussed approach to help people with high levels of shame and self-criticism, including trauma work, issues with confidence and self-esteem, generalised anxiety, depression.
Currently this is one to one work, but I am looking at the possibility of group work in the future.

My background is as a Mental Health Nurse, I undertook subsequent training in CBT in 2000. I became interested in working using a Compassion Focussed therapy approach during my CBT training after attending a workshop on shame. I undertook more training and subsequent supervision to develop this practice, including workshops on anger, eating issues, trauma, supervision as well as advanced and experiential training. I have over thirty years’ experience of helping people experiencing mental health difficulties.
