My Story: How Do I know I Can Help You?
My journey and interest in alcohol & drug counselling began with I realised how affected I had become by someone else’s addiction. I felt miserable, powerless and frustrated at what was happening in my life. I had long stopped listening to my gut instincts and was ignoring my needs and happiness. I reached a point in my life where I was feeling very lost, alone and confused. So, in all the chaos I decided to take back control of my life and get to know myself. I read, talked, joined support groups and learnt all I could. Today I am still learning! The truth is if I hadn’t gone through all that I wouldn’t be where I am now.
In 2008 I decided to train as a counsellor and graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree is addiction counselling. Since then I have experienced many other counselling approaches including; cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing and solution-focused therapy.
I work in private practice in Kerry and I also provide a nationwide online counselling service. I am accredited with theAddiction Counsellors of Ireland and also adhere to their code of ethics. As part of my continued professional development, I attend regular supervision, workshops and training which allows me to keep well-informed of the latest information. My approach to counselling is person-centred, based on empathy, acceptance and respect for each client and where they are in life’s journey. I provide a non-judgmental and confidential place where you can explore your concerns and support to empower you to find your own solutions.
Inner Healing Counselling is a dedicated private counselling service that provides support to people who are affected by substance abuse (whether it’s their own or someone else’s) and strives to help individuals to experience lasting changes in their lives.
