Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) , Person-Centred Therapy
type of services:
Thomas is a fully-accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with added qualifications in Addiction and Diet/Nutrition.
He maintains, however that his own life experience, which led him into addiction and subsequent recovery, was his best source of learning.
Acknowledging the need for the academic process of counselling and psychotherapy, Thomas feels that his empathic approach comes naturally to him.
He likens his approach to driving a car. “You can read how a car should be driven but actually driving a car is a better learning process”.
Stress, fear, panic, avoidance, anxiety, phobia, inhibitions and shyness were foremost in driving Thomas to 20 years of alcoholism and these are now just some of the issues he deals with at his practices in Dublin and Navan.
Thomas is acknowledged as a highly-effective, motivated thorough and passionate practitioner by clients, employers and fellow counsellors.
His approach is mainly person-centred but he also uses behavioural therapies (CBT and REBT where he feels they are appropriate)
Thomas worked his way into this area because he survived and is now in a position to help people who are where he was and because he fully understands what mental health issues and addiction can cause not only to clients but to those closest to them.
