Hi, I’m Gillian Fagan, a psychotherapist, counsellor, CBT therapist and personal development coach based in Dublin.
I am an integrative humanistic psychotherapist which means I do not have a "one size fits all" style. I have been trained in many different schools of counselling, psychotherapy, personal development and coaching. Together we will quickly find the mode of therapy that will work best for you.
Before training as a psychotherapist I had a background in Financial Services where I worked with people who were going through some of the most desperate moments in their lives. I have many years' experience working with people through difficult stressful times.
It might feel strange, at first, opening up to a stranger but sometimes it simply helps to talk and get the support you might need in a non judgemental, safe environment. Your wellbeing is important and at times we just need help overcoming life's challenges.
My focus is on promoting a healthy life by helping people work on stress management, mental wellbeing, self-acceptance, emotional health and become more aware of the unconscious patterns of behaviour. My areas of interest include loss and grief, career problems and stress, conflict, bullying, body image, self-esteem and confidence, parent issues, relationship and family difficulties, non-traditional relationships, LGBT, gender identity, sexual issues, anxiety, depression, loneliness, and emotional difficulties.
I provide a warm, safe and supportive environment where you can explore what is troubling you in total confidence.
By talking with a trained professional you will begin to gain a deeper understanding of who you are and why, and find ways to deal with the demanding pressures of everyday life. For many years I have practiced creative writing, meditation and mindfulness and sometimes incorporate these in my work with clients.
I am continuously engaged in further training and development in order to provide the best therapy and wellbeing practice to all of my clients.
