Aisling Murphy, B.A (2:1); M.Sc.(Couns. Psych.); Reg. Couns. Psychol., Ps.S.I

After completing my degree in psychology, I went onto specialise in Counselling Psychology. I graduated from the M.Sc. program in Counselling Psychology at Trinity College. I am a Registered Counselling Psychologist of the Psychological Society of Ireland and abide by the code of ethics and standards set out by them.
I have worked with children, adolescents, parents, students, individuals and groups presenting with a wide variety of issues. I also provide supervision to other therapists. I work from an integrative approach drawing on a range of psychological theories to facilitate change in my clients. Such theories include psychodynamic, emotion-focused and cognitive behavioural therapies.

For the past 7 years, I have been working within the public sector specialising in adult mental health. Within this, I have gained extensive experience working with trauma/PTSD, abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, neglect), addiction, depression, anxiety, anger issues, bereavement, relationship & family difficulties to name a few. Prior to this position, I worked in a family centre and an employee assistance programme.

In my work with clients, I endeavour to provide a safe and trusting space where one feels safe to approach their pain and work through it. Through my training, knowledge and presence, I assist in raising my clients’ awareness of their current difficulties to enable them to find their own answers as well as working through past issues that may be interfering with current functioning. Awareness is the first step to change. It is my personal and professional belief that anyone can change if they really want to and are prepared to do the work. This belief has been reinforced time and time again in my clinical work.
