Hi, I'm Evie
I am an integrative Counsellor / Psychotherapist – I work with thoughts, feelings, behaviours and somatic experiences to find out what is preventing my clients from living the life they want to live. My approach is professional, relaxed and friendly. My client’s well-being is always at the centre of therapy. Confidentiality is always top priority.
I attained my BA from Munster Technology University and I am a member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My clinic overlooks the strand in Youghal where I work face-to-face with clients who travel from Cork City, East Cork and West Waterford. I also work online with clients from all over Ireland. My approach is professional, relaxed and friendly. My client’s well-being is always at the centre of therapy. Confidentiality is always top priority.
I tailor therapy to each clients needs. Key to my approach is identifying objectives and goals for our work together such as:
– Experiencing feelings of inner peace, value and belonging
– Connecting with a sense of inner purpose
– Experiencing the freedom to live life without feeling burdened or guilty
– Connecting more in relationships
– Overcoming feelings of anxiety or depression
– Overcoming trauma (complex trauma and PTSD)
I use a number of therapeutic frameworks including Internal Family Systems (IFS), Attachment, NeuroAffective Relational Model for restoring connection, Person Centred, Life Script and Transactional Analysis.
All sessions last 50 minutes.
One of the things I am often asked is, “What on earth is going on in my relationship?”
It is so disheartening when we give ourselves to someone and we do not get the result we hoped for. When we experience rejection, we tend to go to a place where we become a much smaller version of ourselves. We tend to put up defensive walls, question everything, doubt ourselves, lower our expectations or lose confidence in our ability to get what we want from life. Each time we do this, we disconnect from a part of ourselves that we no longer trust.
If you are reading this, you may have reached a point in your life where you are tired of the same disappointing outcomes in your relationships. You are ready to honour your own inner purpose and self-worth. I have developed a five-step system that helps people go from feeling unseen and unloved to developing more meaningful, loving and deeply fulfilling relationships that last. As part of this process, I provide tools and resources that can be operationalized on your pathway to responsive relationship building. If you would like to find out more, get in touch.
My first book
HONOURING YOUR TRUE SELF
My first book, Honouring Your True Self is an approach to honouring who you are so that you can belong in relationships that matter. It was born out of my desire to uncover the behaviours that support a true emotional connection and bring into sharp focus the self-limiting behavioural patterns that prevent relationships from developing and growing.
As part of this discovery, I devised a Self Centred Approach, which is based on self-regard, compassion and value. It includes tools that can be set into motion as you embark on the path to building relationships where meaning, trust and belonging lie at the very core. As part of this process, I provide insights into the emotional and psychological shifts that occur in romantic relationships and support you in creating meaningful connections where you can remain steady and grounded and at the same time allow intimacy to develop and grow.
When we open to our true humility, we allow ourselves to be seen. From this place, we can truly see others.
