Gina is a native of Co. Galway and has been working as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist for over five years. She is in the final stages of completing her Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Gina is a fully accredited member of IAHIP and IACP.
Since qualifying Gina has undertaken specialised training that enables her to work with survivors of sexual violence, trauma and abuse. In her practice she works in a client-led way with clients from age 16+ using her instinctual skills of deep listening, empathy and compassion, skills that help ground her clients into safety thereby opening the way for clients to explore whatever it is that emerges for them; sadness, anger, loss, grief, fertility, adoption, anxiety/panic, addiction, relationship difficulties, work related stress.
Gina has a special interest working in the area of esteem and esteem building and works closely with her clients’ collaborating and empowering them as they expand their self-awareness helping them make meaning and sense of their experiences (past and present) in a non-judgemental way. She fully believes in the interconnectedness of the mind, body, spirit.
Gina is very interested in the creative aspects of her work and uses playfulness where ever she can. She wholly believes in the power of connection and the potential for self-discovery, healing and personal growth by being simply fully heard and held with respect, kindness and care in relational depth.
