When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, "Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me"

About Me

Audrey holds an Honours Degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy. She embraces the humanistic psychology of incorporating the whole person mind, body and spirit in their therapeutic sessions. She has worked with clients with relationship issues, low self-esteem, have social anxiety or depression, felt the stresses of everyday living, may have suffered abuse, loss or had a difficult childhood where their needs were not met.

Are you feeling ill at ease or in distress?

By providing a warm, safe and supportive space Audrey helps her clients find within themselves the innate knowing and natural drive to grow towards a better place in whichever way is best for them.

About therapy...

In a warm, non-judgemental and empathetic manner Audrey supports her clients in the exploration of their life story or issue. If a person is accepted positively for how they are unconditionally, they grow towards their own innate full potential. Through the process of the client valuing themselves via their lived experiences and the natural will towards betterment they begin to grow in confidence and rely less on external values, opinions, and beliefs leading to improvement of their self-esteem, self-acceptance and interpersonal-relationships.

Exploring family values, beliefs and behaviour patterns can open a space for the client to rewrite and create their future story.

People display different types of behaviours in their attempts at dealing with the pain and frustration generated by their unsatisfying relationships. Audrey can facilitate with establishing 

what her clients want, question what they are doing to get what they want, evaluating together whether these wants are realistic and achievable, and then helping her clients make a plan to achieve them.

Sessions are custom made to suit each individual's needs, no one approach will suit all clients so an integration of many therapeutic approaches maybe used.

Phone & On-line Therapy

In this day and age we can live busy lives or find it difficult to physically get to a therapy centre, so the option of having your therapy sessions via a phone call or online might appeal to you? Research has proved that the benefit of therapy is not lost by not being physically present in a face to face session.

Audrey offers an initial free 15-minute phone consultation to assess if she is the right match for you and the issues you would like to explore.

Sessions are 50 minutes long and cost €60.

Some low-cost counselling sessions available.

Walk & Talk Therapy

Walk and Talk therapy is the same as individual Face to Face therapy except it is conducted in the outdoors among nature. We can gently stroll side by side, or find a park bench to sit, and explore some of your life experiences in a quiet space. Being among nature has been proved beneficial for positive mental well being.

A suitable park in the surroundings of Naas, Co. Kildare will be used. Wear appropriate footwear and rain-gear.

Using the Energy Therapy Technique as a stand alone session can take up to 2 hours and costs €90.
