Cian is available for short-term solution focused work and long-term work with individual adults.
Cian’s main focus is on the therapeutic relationship between himself and his clients. He feels that when clients are respected and given the opportunity to express how they are, in the present moment and be listened to in an empathic and non-judgmental way within the relationship, his clients experience trust, safety and security, which they may never have experienced before. When this occurs, the secure base has been created for clients to explore and understand themselves on a deeper level, in a safe environment, at their own pace.
