Welcome

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,

for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”  Leonardo da Vinci 

Is it time to take a break?  With so much ‘stuff’ hitting us from all angles, sometimes it is great to stop for a moment, look at what is happening in our lives, adjust to circumstances and take action for a better outcome.  Let me give you a few examples:

Michael knew he needed help!  He wasn’t sleeping, his performance at work was deteriorating and his relationship was in trouble.  Anxiety and stress were unwanted companions. One part of him wanted to make an appointment, the other part resisted: ‘What will I say?  I don’t even know what’s wrong!  I can’t go on like this….maybe just one session..”  

Caroline ruminated about calling.  There was ‘nothing wrong’ but she was at a crossroads in her life since she retired. She hadn’t expected her busy life to stop so suddenly and after the honeymoon period of going on a holiday, sorting out the house and visiting friends.  Now, there was nothing to do and she felt worthless. When she looked in the mirror, a stranger looked back.

I am often asked who makes an appointment.  And the answer is, people just like us. Joe was terrified of flying and offered every excuse not to travel abroad. Mary suffered from exam anxiety and couldn’t concentrate on her studies. Gerry was a priest who was struggling big time. Paddy was having an affair and felt conflicted between his girlfriend and his family. Paul did not know what values meant – he had no internal compass or code to help him live an enjoyable or peaceful life.  Everything was the ‘next great distraction’ and he felt miserable.

Call me on 086 3446673 for a quick chat. I am easy to talk to, non-judgemental and compassionate. If I feel I can help, I will say so.  If you require a specialist, I will recommend someone.  

Call me on 086 3446673.  Let’s work together.

For emergencies (where you are at risk of hurting yourself or someone else), please call 999 or go to your nearest emergency room.

Hypno-analysis

Hypno-analysis attempts to engage the trance state through hypnosis to effect a conscious understanding of a person’s unconscious psychodynamics. 
The benefits of  hypno-analysis offer an opportunity to understand how your personal history and experiences have influenced your behaviour and attracted the types of relationships that repeat – for better or for worse! Read more
