Monica’s approach is a holistic one in that she recognises that health, well-being and personal and organisational effectiveness are multi- factoral and that personal well being and organisational well being are interlinked and both need to be supported and developed.
Whether she is working at a one to one level or with a group , her interest is in figuring out what the underlying issues are and how they may be addressed.
Monica is an experienced and established psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and trainer who has been in practice in Ranelagh, Dublin 6 since 1993. She is accredited with the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapists (IAHIP) , Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP) and with the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP).
She works with people with a wide range of issues but particularly enjoys working with those wishing to find clarity in their life or seeking support around transitions.
She has maintained her own private psychotherapy practice for over fifteen years and also provides short term counselling to employees in a variety of settings.
She is now transferring her experience as a psychotherapist and employee assistance (EAP) provider to workplace settings and provides training on a variety of areas such as stress management, coping with change, critical incident de briefing and building resilience. Her training is characterized by the wealth of experience she draws from and the flexibility to steer her inputs to the particular needs of the group.

She comes from a wholistic perspective in her work and recognises that health and wellness are multifactorial and that talking therapy is one aspect of this.
