Shelly provides Psychotherapy and Counselling Services for individuals based in Dublin.


Psychotherapy is a process which offers a non-judgmental and confidential space in which the client can take some time to explore and understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviours relating to issues that are troubling them. You can make an inquiry about a session below, or call Shelly directly on 087 779 2643. 



Psychotherapy can offer help to those struggling to cope with either current pressures or childhood issues that have not yet been resolved and are affecting the clients’ present life. It can help to clarify what you want from life, achieve greater self acceptance, increase self awareness and engage more fully in life.

The counselling sessions are usually on a weekly basis and the work can be either long or short term depending on the needs and preference of the client.

The psychotherapy sessions take place in the city-centre at either The Therapy Centre on Lower Leeson Street or at the Dublin Holistic Centre on South William Street.

Client Assistance

Some of the issues that can be addressed with a psychotherapist are:

  • Childhood issues and trauma

  • Work related issues and stresses

  • Interpersonal problems

  • Spiritual growth and development

  • Anxiety and stress

My Approach

I am a fully trained and qualified psychotherapist. The approach I use is Integrative, which means I draw on a wide range of approaches including person-centred therapy, gestalt, somatic awareness, psychodynamic and object relations.

The relationship with the client is always at the heart of my practice, so that therapy becomes a safe and trusting space in which the client can open up about their insecurities, hopes and dreams and find a place where they can really be themselves.

In order to make Dublin Psychotherapy & Counselling more accessible, some reduced priced places are available for those on lower incomes.

Person-Centred Therapy

Carl Rogers founded a humanistic approach to psychotherapy, now called person-centric therapy. It is an effective treatment, grounded in the creation of an empathic environment where clients could discover the answers for themselves. In this short video, Rogers describes that environment.
