Eithne is a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. Her approach is predominantly person-centred, but she also draws on her knowledge and training in a wide range of approaches such as Attachment Theory, Relational Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Existential Therapies and Jungian Therapy.
Most importantly, Eithne will be led by you, rather than lead you with a theory of her choosing.
She appreciates that life presents many challenges for us all, which can be a real struggle to navigate alone.
Eithne will join you in the search to unearth your own riches; offering a safe, supportive, non-judgmental, confidential space in which to be heard and understood.
Eithne grew up in London and took up her first career as a class teacher 24 years ago. She has had a range of roles since, specialising in Special Needs and Learning Support, and continues to love teaching part-time in a special support centre for children with speech and language difficulties. She also delivers training on Self-Awareness and Working with Anxiety.
Eithne’s personal journey has made her passionate in the belief that we evolve and are empowered through learning, sharing and self-discovery. This pathway has drawn her deeper into the field of mental health and well-being over time, onto the immensely rewarding role of becoming a counsellor. Her counselling work has been with children in schools across the primary and secondary sector, and with adults both in her private practice and at a charity in Littlehampton. Eithne has also enjoyed being a CPCAB tutor to counselling students.
Eithne brings much warmth, honesty, openness, commitment, curiosity and creativity to her counselling work.
She works with a broad range of issues including anger, anxiety, depression, health problems, trauma, postnatal depression, relationship problems, bereavement, and a loss of identity and direction. She gives particular consideration to Attachment styles, and to broader societal/cultural/environmental factors that influence our personal development, patterns of behaviour, and life choices.
Eithne specialises in anxiety, personal growth, transitions and relationship issues.
Eithne firmly believes that we can all make choices that facilitate change – leading to greater meaning and fulfilment in our lives. Moreover, that we are all worth the effort.
Eithne works in the Studio room at the Wellbeing Centre, which offers the option of taking counselling sessions outside into the private garden and covered terrace area if preferred.
