Dublin and Online Counselling & Psychotherapy 

Sometimes we need a place to explore difficult feelings, emotions and behaviours. To be listened to without judgement. Professional Psychotherapy can provide that place and the understanding needed to move through difficulties.

My Approach to Counselling 

Conn Fitzgibbon MIACP 

I am a fully qualified and accredited member of the Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (IACP) with 13 years experience in Mental Health services. I am currently undertaking an MA in Depth Psychology. 

I use an Integrative and Humanistic approach which means I draw from a variety of theories and techniques and I believe each individual has the capacity to define their own personal growth and change. Since qualifying in EMDR therapy my approach has become a little more directive and solution focused.

I provide a professional, informative, non judgemental, collaborative and compassionate space for growth and change to take place.
