Member of the Psychological Society of Ireland, British Psychological Society, Federation of European Sports Psychologists.

With over 25 years experience including the Middle East, I have worked with people from all walks of life. With every person I work with I help them to learn the reasons behind their mental health concerns. Through knowing more about themselves and the reason for their tension, overthinking, feelings of unworthiness, stress, anxiety, lack of motivation, depression, work relations and work related stress, they can free themselves and live to their full potential. 

I’ve worked with individuals and groups in some of the largest companies in the World delivering individual and group training and development programs, wellness seminars and mental health workshops. This includes companies such as GUCCI, Johnson & Johnson, German-Saudi Hospital, Amazon, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, UAE National Atomic Agency, the Marriot Hotel Group, FRESENIUS, Abu Dhabi Municipality, ADNOC, GEMS Education, Nigerian National Oil Company, DUBIZZLE, just to mention a few. In addition, I have also been on a number of occasions a guest speaker at the annual Dubai Training & Development conference at the World Trade Centre.

If you are struggling with aspects of your life, help is at hand.

Eating Disorders

Is Food ruling your life?

Do you have an Eating Disorder?

Is being on a diet a source of concern and anxiety?

Our society has been caught up in the notion that being thin, is beautiful. Yet the ideal ‘thin’ is biologically almost impossible to achieve. But if you are ‘one’ of the majority, constantly trying to achieve that ‘elusive’ ideal, you are set up for depression. We need to be mindful that a major side effect of starvation of is depression.

Dieting leads to:

· Emotional Turmoil

· Frustration

· Anger

· Depression

· Undermines our confidence

· Erodes our well-being

An eating disorder is a complex psychological illness that often comes with negative or dangerous physical consequences. Treatment requires complex interventions, based on education, re-evaluating the values and attitudes which create body insecurity in women and men, reality testing, and the re-framing of food. With the aid of comprehensive psychometric tests (specially designed for people with weight management difficulties), individuals are assessed for a variety of different eating disorders, body image disturbance and low self-esteem problems. The services I offer are designed to assist individuals to find a formula for eating and other ways of caring for themselves which are compatible with their lifestyle and physiology.

Gambling Addiction

Gambling is one of the most insidious of human vices, as it presents the illusion of easy money yet can quickly lead to financial ruin. Contrary to popular belief, the act of gambling is not restricted to horse racing, greyhound racing, betting on games, etc. Purchasing a lottery ticket, entering a raffle or making a bet with a friend are also forms of gambling.

>Common signs of addiction include, but are not limited to, the following:

>Feeling the need to be secretive about gambling,

>Having trouble controlling gambling habits,

>Gambling when you cannot afford to,

>Your friends and family express concern about your gambling.

Help is at hand.

COST: 60Euro per visit

Psychometric Assessments

What are Psychometric Tests?

Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals’ mental capabilities and behavioural style. They allow us to gain a deeper understanding of our very own personalities, abilities and emotions and in turn highlight areas of ourselves that need developing.

PERSONALITY TESTS – These provide insight into how people typically think, feel and interact in ways that may be productive or counter-productive for your organisation.

OCCUPATIONAL TESTS – These tests predict the performance of potential and current employees in a range of roles and across different career levels.

ABILITY TESTS/ABILITY TESTS – Numerical, Verbal & Diagrammatic reasoning tests are psychometric aptitude tests used by recruiters and employers offering graduate & professional jobs.

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TESTS – EQ reflects a person’s ability to empathize with others: identify, evaluate, control and express one’s own emotions; perceive, and assess others’ emotions; use emotions to facilitate thinking, understand emotional meanings. Emotional intelligence is important for leadership, relationships at work and in personal life.

Career Counselling & Career Guidance

Are you a student studying for your leaving certificate and not sure what career to pursue?

Are you a third level student not happy with your current course?

Are you considering a career change?

Have you been recently made redundant?

Career counselling and guidance is no longer just reserved for those who are about to leave school.

It has long been recognised that one of the most crucial decisions people make in their lives relate to their occupational choice. However, in most recent years, the trend towards a óne-career’ life has ceased to be the norm. More and more people recognise that life nowadays may involve several occupational choices during a lifestyle. People with certain qualities, as defined by various psychometric properties, may have a competitive advantage in the labour market. Such qualities may enable the individual to transcend labour market sectors without much difficulty.

Cost: 150Euro (Initial Assessment & follow-up visit)

Sports Psychology

Physical activity in this day and age is a salient aspect of human experience across the lifespan. Competitive and recreational sporting programs exist for all age groups, and exercise has been identified as an important part of a healthy lifestyle for young and old alike.

Sports Psychology is no longer exclusive to professional athletes. Amateurs and the weekend ‘warriors’ increasingly realize that the biggest distance in sport is the distance between an athletes ‘ears’! Yet all too often our preparations and sacrifices get scuttled because of some kind of emotional hijack.

If you are someone who suffers from:

Pre-Competitive Anxiety,
Competitive Anxiety,
Rational-Emotive Behaviours,
Low Self-Esteem,
Poor Goal-Setting Techniques,
Self-Sabotaging Thoughts,

Then there is a good chance that you will never, ever realise your true potential!
