CBT, Mindfulness and Integrative Psychotherapy Counselling, Psychotherapy, CBT and Clinical Hypnotherapy are therapeutic tools to help us through our every day lives.
Ken has been working with young people and adults in therapeutic settings for over 12 years. In that time Ken has gathered skills in counselling, psychotherapy, psychology, psychoanalysis and clinical hypnotherapy, and combines them now to offer the most to his clients.
Many therapists in the above disciplines can richly help a person in need, but as we are all individuals, the help needs to be unique also for the client. Being able to offer a wide range of therapies to a client allows our unique self to grow in a healthy and safe way.
Ken’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Psychoanalysis was obtained through DBS School of Arts, graduating in 2004. After returning from travelling, Ken worked in the ISPCC as a national supervisor with Childline. In Childline Ken trained volunteers in Dublin, Waterford and Galway in Active Listening skills, as well as Confidentiality, Children’s First and Child Protection. Ken then moved to Residential Care work, working more one to one with young people in crises situations. During his time in this area, he trained for his Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy with the Irish Hypnotherapist Association, and then the following year started his Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy with the IICP (Irish Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy) while working as a Social Care Leader. Ken now sees clients around the Wicklow and Dublin area while working part time as a therapist in Pieta House, a suicide and self-harm intervention centre, in Lucan, Co. Dublin.
Ken is a fully accredited member of the IACP

Our brains have been evolving for hundreds of thousands of years... and we still have such animal instincts for survival and deep fear of being judged and "kicked from the tribe". The last 100 years of western society (especially the last 20 years) has thrown so much information at our brains that I believe it is creating more and more psychological issues daily for us all. The sentiment in the picture sums this up perfectly. Find the wisdom to monitor the information highway that is in our hands daily to help your brain catch up a little bit ;)
Such a great crowd at my last Workshop on Saturday! And they all gave really kind feedback. We will be setting up our next one soon!
Free parking here today for anyone attending the workshop! On Trafalgar road opposite Greystones Clinic
