Counselling, Psychotherapy & EMDR Psychotherapy

A safe place to talk without judgement

My name is Gerard O’ Brien and I am a qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist based in Cork. I am an ACCREDITED member of IACP (Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I follow a strict code of ethics and professionalism. Counselling is also known as talk therapy. I offer private therapy sessions for adults on a long, medium or short-term basis.

Counselling can provide you with a safe and private space. You can regain a sense of peace and calm. I use an integrative, humanistic psychotherapeutic approach. My role is to  support you. Help you find healing and resolution. With counselling you will learn coping skills and  meet life’s challenges while aiding self-discovery.

I am also a Fully Accredited EMDR Practitioner with EMDR Ireland and EMDR Europe.
