Conor has been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2020 having completed his Master’s in Psychotherapy and is currently working towards full accreditation with Irish Association for Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP).
Conor has experience working with individuals on a wide range of issues, including bereavement, anxiety, depression, addiction, LGBTQ issues, sexuality, trauma, child sexual abuse, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, life crises, existential issues and identity issues.
Academic Background and Training
Conor graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from University of Limerick in 2010 and has worked in this sector for over 12 years.
He then went on to train as a psychotherapist earning a Higher Diploma and a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Dublin Business School. Conor has supervision on a regular basis as part of his own continuous education and commitment to the codes and ethics of IAHIP.
In his work, Conor is informed by a humanistic and integrative approach. He believes that all individuals seeking therapy have the ability to find their own way forward within the supportive and safe space that the therapeutic relationship can offer. He believes that through sharing and exploring their struggles and blocks with their therapist, that debilitating life issues can be understood in a deeper way, enabling the individual to lead a healthier and more fulfilling life. Conor believes that respect for the individual’s fundamental ability to know and understand themselves, is at the core of humanistic therapeutic work.
Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Conor draws from person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, gestalt, body-based approaches and art and creative processes. Working with clients in this way can assist them to work through painful feelings towards acceptance, and richer more fulfilling life patterns. Conor provides a non-judgmental, supportive and confidential environment for clients to explore their unique patterns and needs.
