Philippa is a fully accredited member of APPI (Association For Psychoanalysis & Psychotherapy in Ireland) and ICP (Irish Council for Psychotherapy) and practices within their guidelines.

Over the past number of years, Philippa has gained clinical experience from very diverse settings with clients across the lifespan including hospitals, probation services, addiction treatment services, schools and Autistic Spectrum Disorder units. Philippa works with adolescents as well as adults.
Philippa believes in the importance of allowing clients to speak and tell their story in their own words and without judgement in a safe and confidential therapeutic environment. She recognises that every client is unique and works to provide sessions which are tailored and based on the individuality of each client. Philippa’s approach to psychotherapy aims to help clients understand and resolve their difficulties by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships and experiences both past and present. Through this understanding, the client can develop a stronger sense of well being and a deeper sense of self.
