One on One

Individual psychotherapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life.

Online Sessions

Online therapy can be a good option for people who cannot access care due to location, health, or transportation issues. Online therapy may be offered as a standalone treatment.

About Me

I am a qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I hold a Diploma and BA (Hons) in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Institute of Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy (IICP) as well as a BA (Hons) in Social Communication. I use an integrative approach based on Humanistic-Existential traditions. This aims to help the client to achieve greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, ownership, better relationships and more control over their life.

Why therapy with Leo?

“I strongly believe that connection and chemistry between a therapist and a client is of utmost importance in order to get the work done. My therapy style is unique in that it’s based on empowering clients to realise their worth and consequently improve the relationships that surround them.” Leo

Accredited member

I am a member of the IACP (Irish Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health. In these associations I follow their professional standards and mission to promote best practices.

Affirmative Approach Across Cultures

I offer an affirmative approach for all my clients. I actively honour and celebrate my clients' identity while validating the oppression they feel. Validation and empathy fundamentally result from increased understanding of individuals' history, cultural context, and lived experiences.

Integrative Psychotherapy

My approach is integrative and draws on multiple traditions. In other words, there is no "one size fits all" approach when working with clients and there is no point in trying to force someone to work in a way they do not like or does not suit. Integrative therapy is an individualized, holistic approach to therapy that combines ideas and techniques from different therapeutic schools of thought, depending on the unique needs of a given client.

Grief & Complicated Grief
Grief can be an extremely painful process. It’s something all of us have experienced, or will experience, in our lives. Losing someone or something you love is difficult.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination. What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly”. Carl Rogers
