Psychotherapy Training and Accreditation
Eoghan holds a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from PCI College and a BSc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Middlesex University. In the years since completing his foundational training in Humanistic psychotherapy, Eoghan has continued to expand his knowledge and skills set by undertaking trainings in various other approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Existential, Mindfulness, and Gestalt. He has received specific training (EMDR) for treating trauma and (CAMS) for the management of suicidality.
Eoghan is an accredited member of the Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (IACP), works within their ethical framework of delivering therapy, and attends regular supervision to ensure his work maintains a high standard.
Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Eoghan works with people using an integrative approach, which means he works mainly from a humanistic perspective, while also drawing from other approaches like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Existential, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and mindfulness.
Eoghan approaches therapy in collaboration with each person to help get a clear understanding of what they want to get out of therapy and what the best way of doing that is. This can involve setting goals, specific skills training, or a deep exploration of what is going on within us, including things that can often be difficult to put into words.
The most important thing for Eoghan when working together with someone is that each person feels safe enough, comfortable enough, and supported enough to face the difficult things life asks of us.
Counselling Experience and Areas of Interest
Eoghan has worked with people on areas such as suicide, trauma, abuse, addiction, loss, bereavement, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, self-hate, forgiveness, sexuality, and gender identity.
Eoghan is particularly interested in how we find meaning and purpose in our lives in the aftermath of loss, how we make sense of the difficult experiences we have had, and how we can finally come to heal our past wounds. Eoghan is passionate about mindfulness and the power it has to transform many aspects of our lives for the better.
