For GPs, CAMHS, TUSLA
I accept self-referrals and referrals from:
Medical professionals such as General Practitioners (GP) and Psychiatrists.
Psychologists, other mental health professionals.
Educational professionals such as teachers, guidance counsellors and chaplains.
Tusla, nurses, social care workers.
Confidentiality is vital for psychotherapy to be effective. However, I believe that when working in private practice it is important to liaise with other professionals involved in the care of the child/adolescent (if given consent from the parents/carers). Hence, I appreciate that general feedback in relation the therapy process may be valuable to Psychiatrists, GPs, Psychologists, and Social Workers. I also understand that there are limits to confidentiality in certain circumstances in particular when the young person self-harms, discloses suicidal ideations, where there is a child protection concern, or in the case of an emerging psychiatric illness.
It is my policy that if a child/adolescent discloses self-harm or suicidal ideations he/she needs to be seen by his/her GP as soon as possible.
I was Garda Vetted by ICP (The Irish Council for Psychotherapy) in August 2016, and PCI College in 2020. I keep up to date with Child Protection Training. A CV, References and Diplomas are available on request.
