Tony holds a First Class Honours Bachelor of Science Degree from Middlesex University, London and PCI College, Dublin. He is a fully accredited member of the IACP (Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abides by their Code of Ethics. He is a family man.
His expertise lies in helping clients achieve clarity and assisting them to reflect on areas of their lives that may be causing difficulty; along with exploring options which may help to bring about change, if that is their wish.
He strives to provide a comfortable and supportive atmosphere of mutual respect, where clients may express themselves openly and be sure of an empathetic and non-judgemental response. His approach is ‘integrative’ - which means he draws on a background of different therapies (including CBT and Person-Centred), recognising that no single form of therapy is best in all situations for all clients, and that each one of the many approaches to therapy has some value. Therefore the sessions are flexible and may be tailored in a way that is most appropriate for each individual client, depending on their particular needs and personality.
He has considerable experience in assisting clients address and resolve specific problems, cope with crises, deal with work stress, improve and maintain self-esteem, improve and develop relationships, or commence/continue their journey of personal growth.
Tony also has been engaged by a Dublin Institute as a Tutor/Course Leader to help trainee therapists to advance their skills and knowledge in the field.
