Approach: Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
Sinéad O’Brien is currently completing a B.A (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy at Cork Institute of Technology (qualifying in Sept 2019). This course is approved by the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
Sinéad uses a person-centred and integrative approach in her work, and focuses on creating a safe and healing space for her clients to explore difficulties. She believes that by being non-judgmental, emphatic and authentic with her clients, she provides the conditions necessary to develop an effective therapeutic relationship.
Sinead has attended workshops on suicide awareness, trauma and family constellations. She is a pre-accredited member of the IACP, follows a strict code of ethics and attends regular supervision.
Her availability to clients is for both short and long-term work. Her approach is very much integrative and she offers a number of approaches in her work including Person Centred Approach, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis (TA), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Experiencing and Mindfulness. Sinead offers therapy in English to adults.
Sinead’s background has involved fulfilling her own path of self-discovery and healing over a long period of time. She is a big advocate for the work, a very experienced meditator and has a keen interest in bodywork and meditation to assist clients on their own healing journey. Her belief is that therapy can be very effective for individuals both in crisis and in need of support, short or long term. The relationship between the client and therapist is key to the work and everyone has an enormous capacity to heal.

- Anxiety and Depression
