In January 2005 I moved to North London from Cork, Ireland and commenced my private practice in North London.

I moved to Ireland from Birmingham in 1975. From 1990 until December 2004 I was working in private practice in Cork as a counsellor and psychotherapist with adults, adolescents and children. In 1995, I also started working as a trainer and supervisor. My work was both with individuals and groups.

I am currently:

  • Southern Health Board in Cork, predominantly working with children who had been sexually abused.
  • Faoiseamh, as psychotherapist for victims of clerical abuse
