Psychotherapy Training and Accreditation

John holds an MA in Pluralistic Counselling & Psychotherapy from IICP College; an MA is Occupational Psychology from Birkbeck, University of London; and a MSc in Cognitive Science from UCD.  He holds a certificate in CBT from Turning Point, and a certificate in Jungian Studies from the Jung Centre, Dublin.  Before training in psychotherapy, John trained in clinical psychology.

John is a Chartered Psychologist (Ps.S.I.; B.P.S.), a Pre-Accredited Psychotherapist (IACP); and a certified Coach (Association for Coaching).  He has further training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion-Focused Therapy.  John qualified in personality, occupational and forensic psychometric assessment (BPS Test User Levels A & B; BPS Test User: Forensic), and is highly trained and experienced in a wide variety of child, adolescent, and adult assessment (e.g., cognitive, educational, Autism, ADHD/ADD, psychiatric).

Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach

John is a firm believer that we learn far more from our failures than from our successes, and as such, has hopefully learned a lot – with still so much left to learn.  He is a highly reflective practitioner, who has learned a huge amount from his clients on what has often been a difficult, but always enhancing, journey.

John is trained in a wide variety of theoretical orientations – pluralistic, cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, humanistic, existential – and does his best to incorporate all of these into his practice.  His individualised approach is to assess, collaboratively, with each client what approach works best for them, at that particular time.

John believes firmly in the foundations of his pluralistic training in psychotherapy: it’s the therapeutic relationship, and it’s the fully collaborative work with his client, that brings about the greatest chances of change.

Counselling Experience and Areas of Interest

John has worked in the HSE and voluntary sector as a psychologist, with infants, children, adolescents, adults, and older adults.  He has worked as a therapist in one-to-one settings, and has designed and delivered a number of groups – anger management, stress management, and social anxiety.

He has worked in a number of assessment environments, spanning all ages, involving cognitive, educational, autism, attention/hyperactivity, psychiatric, personality and occupational assessment.  More recently, John has focused more on psychotherapy, working with people 16 years and older.

John’s areas of interest include generalised anxiety, social anxiety, depression, attention difficulties, existential work, personality disorder, trauma, family dynamics, stress (including occupational issues), grief and loss.

John’s fee is €80 per session
