Counselling and psychotherapy can be of significant benefit to anyone going through a difficult time or suffering from symptoms which make daily life hard to cope with or even unbearable. I am trained in integrative counselling and psychotherapy which comes from the belief that no one theory is broad enough to account for the complexities of human beings. I believe, along with many in my field, that the relationship with your therapist is more important than any therapeutic model and is the single most important element in the process of healing and growth. My clinical work has also shown me that a good therapeutic relationship based on openness, honesty and trust combined with awareness, compassion and acceptance of ourselves as human beings can lead to profound difference in the way we experience ourselves and our relationships with others.
Hello, my name is Eimear Scully and I provide counselling and psychotherapy services in the Healthy Way, Leixlip. I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and trained through the Irish Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies (IICPS) in conjunction with Dublin City University.
I have a personal and professional interest in mindfulness and have completed a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy / Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBCT/MBSR) course. This approach combines elements of MBCT/MBSR where the person observes his/her habitual, automatic and unhelpful cognitive reactions while learning to interact with thoughts and emotions in a less judgemental and more compassionate way.
I can usually work with any area that is causing difficulty in your life however I do not work with those in active addiction as this requires a specialist training. I work with both adults and adolescents (with parental consent). Some of the most common areas of my client work includes:
- Self esteem
- Self harm
- Relationship difficulties
- Emotional crises
- Work related issues
- Personal growth
