Psychotherapy Training and Accreditation

Ross graduated with a B.A. from the Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (IICP), Tallaght. During his course of study Ross completed a course in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).

Since then, Ross has gained a wide experience working with anxiety and depression; he has trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) through PCI College, Dublin.  Ross has also studied invisible addictions – gambling, gaming, pornography (etc.) – and strengths-based counselling methods online through the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).

Ross is an accredited psychotherapist with the IACP (Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abides by their codes of ethics.

Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach

Ross is an integrative, person-centred psychotherapist who favours an existential-humanistic approach.  He believes that a genuine client-therapist relationship is essential to the therapeutic process and that our purpose is not predestined, but that we must endeavour to discover ways to orient our lives towards that which endows it with meaning.

However, in his experience, the power and agency of the individual to instigate change is often overlooked, which is where the development of a greater self-awareness is also central to the therapeutic process.

Counselling Experience and Areas of Interest

Ross has volunteered at Tallaght’s Village Counselling Service (VCS), and Bray’s Living Life Counselling centre. At the same time, he has continued to develop his private practice and work with Mind and Body Works.

Ross has previous experience in homecare, multiculturalism and work with people with intellectual disabilities.

With a penchant for all types of creativity, collaboration, philosophy, beliefs and inter-spirituality, Ross views Love and Responsibility as two cornerstones of human existence. He believes that a non-judgemental, empathic environment is paramount, in order for real change to begin and after that, the path towards living your best life becomes a more realistic possibility.

Ross’ fee is €70 per session
