About me:

*NEW* Walk-and-Talk Service (Starting June 7th):

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: I will be offering Walk-and-Talk therapy for 6 weeks (Fridays: June 7th - July 12th). This is an opportunity to try therapy in person and outdoors, walking together as we engage in our therapeutic conversation. This service will be operating out of the Dublin 6 MyMind office (E.g. begin and end the walk at the Rathmines office) and will require an initial consultation via video the week before (May 31st), to discuss ethics and safety outdoors. If you are interested in finding out more about this service, please reach out and I would be happy to have a chat!

Information on Walk-and-Talk Service: Kristin offers walk-and-talk therapy for MyMind clients based near the Dublin D6 office. This nature-based approach to therapy happens outdoors, where nature becomes co-therapist and clients can choose to walk or sit in outdoor settings whilst engaging in talk therapy with Kristin. Walk-and-talk therapy supports client growth by transcending the confines of the therapy room, providing a more dynamic backdrop to the therapeutic relationship, promoting mutuality and shared ownership of space, and offering the opportunity for mindful movement to be interwoven into the therapeutic work. Walk-and-talk therapy has been found to bring regulation to the nervous system and address the adverse symptoms of Nature Deficit Disorder (Cooley et al., 2020). Clients who wish to engage in this type of therapeutic modality are required to attend an initial consultation session to discuss the ethical and safeguarding implications of bringing therapy outdoors. If you are interested in finding out more about walk-and-talk therapy, contact Kristin to discuss eligibility.

Kristin has obtained her doctorate in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, 2017. She has recently completed her MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy in ICHAS, Limerick and is a Graduate Member of the Psychological Society of Ireland.

Kristin has also completed a postgraduate diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and relevant certificates in Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Informed Practice, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Jungian Archetypes.

Kristin is available for both short-term (solution focused) and long-term (depth) work with adult individuals. She provides therapy in English.

The techniques that Kristin uses to work with clients include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, internal family systems, person-centered psychotherapy, and mindful self-compassion based approaches.
