Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS17-05643

Location: Belfast

My name is Seán, and I a qualified counsellor currently registered with BACP and NCS. As I currently work in the charity sector, I have extensive experience working with a very broad spectrum of clients, of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, sexualities, and gender expressions. As a result of this, I have sought additional training on many topics, such as domestic violence, the transgender experience in Northern Ireland. Additionally, in my recent education at Ulster University, I undertook some research into social anxiety, giving me a more specialist knowledge of that topic.
While I am trained integratively, I work mostly psychodynamically. What this means is I am well suited to helping you understand why you are feeling the way that you are, and by understanding it, we better understand ourselves, and can live more authentically and organically. It is my belief that there is a reason for all of our feelings and behaviours.
I cannot promise I will be able to help you, as I have never met you. What I can promise, is that I will work with you and do my utmost to help us both better understand what is going on for you, and therefore what we can do to get you living a life that makes more sense to you, that is more more meaningful and comfortable for you.
