Approach: Integrative and Person Centred (Humanistic)
Maureen Finuncane has a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Honours) in Counselling and Psychotherapy and studied at Cork Institute of Technology; she is a pre-accredited member of IACP. Maureen uses an integrative and Humanistic approach to psychotherapy and counselling. She believes the role of the therapist is to facilitate and assist clients to make meaning of their experience, to discover their inner world, increase self-awareness, to work through and resolve their issues.
Maureen believes the quality of the therapeutic relationship is hugely important; she provides a confidential, non-judgmental & supportive environment, using Roger’s core conditions empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard and Erskine’s inquiry, attunement and involvement. Maureen facilitates clients to process and explore their own strengths, insights and resources to lead to a better understanding of self and facilitate growth and change.
As an integrative therapist Maureen uses various aspects of Person-centred, Transactional analysis, Gestalt, Internal Family systems and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). Maureen tailors her approach to suit each individual and to ensure their needs are addressed.
