Support For Individuals, Couples & Relationships
“I believe that within each person there is the potential to change and grow”
Hello! I’m Judith
I am a fully accredited Person-Centred Counsellor. Since graduating, I have received qualifications in Addiction Studies (NUI Maynooth), Children and Loss (The Irish Hospice Foundation), Couples Counselling (Accord), Mediation and Conflict Resolution Skills (Athena Mediation and CLM, Northside). Having completed a Diploma in Counsellor Supervision, I am fully accredited as a supervisor.
I work with people in an integrative and humanistic way, working with each individual according to their needs. I work in a safe, confidential and therapeutic space without judgment. I incorporate Rogerian, CBT and Mindfulness elements in my work.
I believe that within each person there is the potential to change and grow.
What Is Counselling?
Stress, Anxiety, & Depression
Counselling is a process that allows you to explore your difficulties, thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that affect your life negatively, in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. Counselling gives you the opportunity to find within yourself the resources to deal with life’s difficulties and challenges.
Who Could Benefit From Counselling?
You could benefit from counselling at any stage in your life. It is more beneficial that you consider counselling when you are seeking to deal with changes, events or transitions in your life.
What It Is About
Counselling is not about giving advice. The counsellor endeavours to create an environment in which you feel respected, accepted, listened to and understood.
What happens at a session?
The first session is an assessment, allowing both you and the counsellor the opportunity to decide whether counselling is right for you at this particular time. Confidentiality is discussed, personal details and medical history are reviewed, and you can say what has brought you for counselling at this time. Follow-on sessions are all about you and your concerns.
How can counselling help?
You can talk about any issue that is of importance to you. These are just some of the issues that people talk about:
- Stress and anxiety
- Low Self-Esteem/Lack of Confidence
- Relationship Difficulties
- Family Problems
- Recovering from Addiction/Living with an Addict
- Personal Development
- Gender Identity Issues
- Physical, Emotional, Sexual Abuse

Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Here are some of the most common questions that I get asked. If you don’t find the answer here please feel free to ask your question in the contact form below.
How long does a session last for?
Each session lasts for about 50-55 minutes.
How many times will I have to see you?
It is best to attend for at least 6 sessions and if more are required, then it will be discussed. Some clients decide that they need more than this.
Where do you do the counselling sessions?
I work in Marino, Dublin 3 and Artane, Dublin 5 in therapy rooms.
Can you come to my home to do the sessions?
No, sorry but all sessions are done in my therapy rooms only.
Are you available to talk outside of our set appointments?
Only in extreme situations.
Do you have answers to my problems to help me?
I believe that each of us has the answer to our own problems, but we may need help finding the answers and I can help with this.
How much does it cost?
Each session costs €70 for individuals and €90 for couples.
Does my health insurance cover any of my sessions with you?
No, I don’t use this facility.
What can I expect from counselling?
The counsellor will encourage you to express your thoughts and feelings, in an environment that is confidential, non-judgemental and professional.
You can expect to find better ways to understand yourself, or manage the way you think or behave to improve your mental and emotional well-being.
What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?
The terms counselling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably and overlap in a number of ways. Both are talk therapies, delivered by trained practitioners.
Counselling is a short term process that encourages clients to explore their issues and find more effective ways of coping and initiating change.
Psychotherapy tends to focus on working with individuals for a longer term and draws from insight into emotional problems and difficulties.
Do I get charged if I have to cancel an appointment?
All cancellations incur a room rental charge, even if given enough notice. If less than 48 hours notice is given, the full fee is charged.
