I provide couples and family counselling services in Cork City Centre, Ireland.

If you feel that you are in need of these services please feel free to contact me to book your first session.

There are many reasons that couples and families seek support from a counsellor and I have a great deal of experience in this area.

Family Therapy

Quite often a family enter into family therapy to seek help due to problems that are often being caused by one family member’s behaviour. It could be that an addiction is causing serious concerns and affecting the family; one of the family may be causing huge problems with their anger or other behavioural problems could be affecting everyone. It could also be that a family enter counselling to address wider family issues such as issues between parents and children or sibling difficulties.

Why have Family Therapy in Cork?

Some common reasons are:

  • Communication issues
  • Addiction
  • Behavioural problems
  • Conflict
  • Bereavement
  • Family Counselling for Addiction

Worried about someone’s addiction? Fed up of the lies? Worrying about what is going to happen next? I am focusing a lot of my therapy work towards helping families with addiction (and other emotional; psychological; behavioural and relational difficulties). Quite often the family doesn't get the help they need even when the ‘addicted’ family member gets into recovery. Unless other family members are able to access help; talk and heal; quite often the family remains toxic; traumatised and unhealthy. I have many years of experience of working with families in active addiction and recovery. If a family has addiction present then even if the ‘addicted person’ gets treated the family needs to access support to deal with the effect it has had on them. If you attend family counselling for addiction with me two separate aspects will be covered. The first being information and psycho-education on addiction - what is addiction; how it affects a family; how to deal with addiction; family recovery from addiction. The second aspect of my counselling with families is where the ‘addicted individual’ and other family members work together with me to look at the consequences of the addiction; how the individual family members and family unit as a whole has been affected; work towards the family getting into recovery as individuals and as a family.
