A little about me

Grief Therapist, writer & mum.

As a Grief Therapist and mum, my work is influenced from many years working in the area of physical and mental health. I was 11 years old when I lost my mother in a horse riding accident, then some years later my father died. I learnt at a young age about death. I am privileged to have worked with clients from all walks of life. Supporting my clients as they learn to understand themselves and their grief with more clarity and compassion. I believe that we all have an ability to heal, even when those experiences of grief and loss have felt insurmountable.

I currently work in private practise, but up until last year I worked as a grief and bereavement therapist in the HSE. A number of years ago I volunteered my services to Feileacain (the Irish Association for pregnancy, neonatal and stillbirth) and currently I offer my services voluntarily to Asylum seekers in Sligo, applying for refugee status.

In my spare time I love to be in nature, climb mountains and swim in the Irish sea. I write whenever I get a quiet moment, and was even lucky enough to have some of my work published. I live in Sligo with my family.

  • Degree (Hons) BA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
  • Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
  • Certificate in Sports Psychology.
  • Certified Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Certificate Reality Therapy & Couple Counselling.
