My name is Terry Naughton and I studied for four years which culminated in an Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am fully accredited with the IACP (Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and my professional training allows me to practice as an integrative therapist.  This means that, using a wider lens, I am able to draw on a broad range of models and theories of counselling and psychotherapy to help clients with their issues. By incorporating a range of different theories I can assist clients to gain understanding and insight (of their struggles) from a variety of viewpoints.

What is in the past will always be there - we can't forget that.  We can however change the way in which our past experiences impact on our everyday life and living.

I believe that we all have the capacity for healing and my focus is to facilitate you to meet the best of you. This can be done through encouraging you to access a healthy self-awareness and promoting a more fulfilling way of living. I'd like to invite you back into the driving seat - the driving seat of your own life.

I am continually increasing my knowledge and expanding my awareness  by attending courses and workshops which enhances my learning and improves my practice.

A great emphasis for me in therapy is my relationship with you (the client). That relationship is crucial and can hugely assist you to explore your difficulties and find ways to manage them. I wish to create an atmosphere where:

  • You feel safe to explore your concerns
  • The space is free from judgement
  • There is an atmosphere of compassion, understanding and trust
  • There is a creative environment that encourages new beginnings for you
