Valerie O Neill

Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Welcome to my website, where you can learn a little bit about me and the counselling & psychotherapy services I offer.

 

My practice is based in Douglas, Cork and Kanturk in North Cork, where I can facilitate daytime and evening appointments. I can offer early morning appointments by arrangement.

 

I am committed to offering a safe and confidential space where anyone who is in distress can trust they will be heard and understood without judgment.

 

There are a variety of reasons why you may choose to speak to me. It's a courageous decision to start therapy. You may feel nervous about it - and that's normal.

 

I bring to the therapy the knowledge I have attained through my core training and a variety of life experiences. These experiences give me a greater understanding of how client’s lives are disturbed by a range of issues including;

 

• Anxiety,

 

• Depression,

 

• Bereavement,

 

• Loss,

 

• Relationships difficulties,

 

• Low Self-Esteem,

 

• Stress,

 

• Illness,

 

• Carer’s challenges,

 

• Work Related Concerns,

 

• Physical disability.

 

• Difficult life changes & transitions,

 

• Developmental trauma or simply the feeling that everything is not okay.

 

 

I WORK WITH ADULTS (ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS) AND TEENAGERS FROM 11 YEARS OF AGE, WITH WRITTEN CONSENT FROM A PARENT OR GUARDIAN.

 

For me the dandelion symbolizes the essence of letting go. It’s hard to do but it’s worth the effort. Because when we let go of what no longer serves us, we can make space for what does.

 

“Letting go gives us freedom and freedom is the only condition for happiness.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
