Business Profile

Mood Management I have a series of evidence based CBT programmes for mood management problems. There are 2 versions: low intensity and high intensity. Low Intensity Programme consists of between 8 and 12 CBT Mood Management modules and lasts between 6 and 8 weeks The High Intensity Programme consists of all the Low Intensity Modules plus individual integrative psychotherapy, psychoeducational training and relapse prevention strategy management. This lasts between 10 and 16 sessions or longer, if necessary. These Mood Management Programmes are designed to provide the client with some information about the various disordered moods and behaviours and suggested strategies for how they can manage them. They are organised into modules that are designed to be worked through in sequence. Although it is not necessary that one module is completed before going on to the next, this is recommended. Each module includes information, worksheets, and suggested exercises or activities. See website for more information

Addictions Treatment Next Step Therapy has a series of addictions services suitable for a variety of clients from pre-treatment to aftercare and those who have achieved some stability in their recovery and wish to work on a deeper level.

They are also suitable for clients in early recovery who also have comorbid mental health problems. The emphasis is on avoiding relapsing to their substance of choice. The multi-tiered service consists of a series of modular programmes or interventions from assessment, diagnosis and referral to a yearlong Intensive Outpatient Programme (IOP). There are core programme, such as primary, secondary or outpatient treatment etc. The other services are "bolted-on" when there is a need. The client chooses what s/he believes is appropriate and I start a group when 4 or more people have expressed an interest.

Anger Management - Individual I have a range of anger management, aggression and violence control sessions for adults and adolescents, both individual and group. Also, anger management for alcohol and drug dependent clients.

Anger Management - Group Group Sessions. I have a range of anger management, aggression & violence control and assertiveness training. These are

1. Cage the Rage This group is for those whose anger is visible and apparent. It might frighten others and might have got you in trouble with authority.

2. It's OK to be Angry. This group is for those who struggle to express or even experience their anger. Examples include sarcasm, sulking, manipulation etc

3. Assert Yourself! Being assertive is an important communication skill which can reduce your levels of depression and anxiety and improve your self esteem. This course is designed to provide you with some information about assertiveness - what it is, what stops us from being assertive and how to become more assertive.

Counselling Counselling is fairly similar to Psychotherapy but is generally used for short-term solution focussed issues. For example, counselling is appropriate for most day to day problems in a person's life where there is some awareness of the problem; where it is not hidden

Treatment for Depression 9 Module CBT course for depression combined with psychotherapy. Strongly evidence-based. There will be a lot of homework with this therapy. Aftercare for up to a year is also available.

Alcohol Dependence I specialise in alcohol dependency and have a wide range of skills suitable for this difficult problem. The goal of therapy is to achieve a year's sustained abstinence from alcohol and other drugs.

Drug Testing carry out Drugs of Abuse Testing at my office. This consists of either an observed urine or saliva sample. This sample, which meets Chain of Custody conditions, is then sent to a registered and accredited laboratory in Dublin for confirmation acceptable to the court. There is a 24hr turnabout on lab testing. This test, including all testing and laboratory, costs €95 for an observed urine test and €110 for a saliva test.

I also do instant urine tests acceptable to most employers or institutions but these are susceptible to legal challenge. As an accredited drug and alcohol professional, I issue a certificate verifying the authenticity of the test result. These tests are either observed or unobserved. An observed test has much greater credibility. The cost of this test is €55 including all paperwork and test equipment.

A free Substance Dependency Syndrome Diagnostic test is offered free of charge to those who want one. A referral for treatment is included in this free offer.

Mental Health Assessment General screening and assessment service.

Please note that I do not subscribe to the medical model of mental illness and have a humanistic integrative psychotherapy approach to mental health and distress.

Nevertheless, I am happy to work with your GP and use generally accepted assessment protocols such as DSM-IV or ICD 10 diagnostic criteria.

I offer a Biopsychosocial assessment which looks at mental states but also physical, emotional, social, housing, social functioning, legal and spiritual or transpersonal issues.

A comprehensive assessment usually lasts 75 minutes.

CBT+ I use CBT either on its own or, more likely, in combination with other therapeutic interventions. For example, if you come for Social Anxiety, would also work on assertiveness training, explore how it feels and when it started. I would also use Hypnotherapy for ego-strengthening or phobias associated with shyness.

Please see website under Mood Management for more information on my various programmes.

Anger Management - Cage the Rage Group Anger Out! This is an anger management and aggression/violence control group for those whose anger is expressed outwards; is obvious and can be seen by others. The group will last for twelve sessions, will be held weekly and last for 105 minutes. The goal of the group will be to learn how to manage anger effectively and to begin the process of understanding and eventually resolving the emotional issues underlying your anger. The group will consist of Psychosocial Skill Learning, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Interpersonal Group Psychotherapy.

Anger Management - It's OK to Feel Angry Anger In! This is a group for those who internalise or 'swallow' anger or 'bottle things up'. This type of anger is frequently not noticed nor seen by others. The result of this type of anger is that you are not heard and the consequences are shame, low self-esteem and depression, amongst many others. The group will consist mainly of learning the nature of anger not expressed. The group will last for between 8 and 12 sessions depending on group needs and dynamic. The goal of the group is to learn assertive communication and to begin the process of making peace with the past. Like the Anger Out! group, this group will consist of Psychosocial Skill Learning, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Interpersonal Group Psychotherapy with a strong emphasis on assertive communication and emotional literacy.
