Biographical Details

I am an Assistant Professor in Psychotherapy in the School of Nursing, Psychotherapy and Community Health at DCU. I trained initially as a clinical psychologist (B.A., M.A., M.Psych.Sc., UCD) and then also as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist (Dip.Psych, Dunlaoghaire Institute of Creative Counselling and Psychotherapy), followed later by a Doctorate in Psychotherapy (London Metanoia Institute/Middlesex University). I am an Associate Fellow of the Psychological Society of Ireland, and an accredited member and supervisor with the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy.

I have worked in various settings over the last 25 years, including the Irish prison service, community-based and inpatient adult psychiatric services, a community care HSE service for children and adolescents, and private practice. Having engaged in sessional teaching through most of my career, I took up this full-time academic post in DCU in 2015, which has facilitated development of my specialist teaching and research interests in clinical supervision and practitioner development.
