Counselling = Time for You!

Counselling provides time in a confidential, respectful, and non-judgemental space for you to think
about yourself and explore how you might make changes that could improve your life in a way that
is meaningful to you.

A Little About Me:
My name is Éilís (pronounced “Ale-eesh”) and I am a BACP accredited counsellor, also qualified as an
online therapist.
I am based in Belfast, Co. Antrim, from where I offer online and telephone counselling to individual
adults, including young adults (18 – 25 years) and older adults.

Having supported people from many different walks of life since 2004, I continually hear how
important it is for clients to have someone really listen to their unique experience of challenges they
have lived through or are dealing with. For this reason, I work in an integrative way so that I can
adapt my approach to best fit you and what you need from the counselling process.

The Therapy Modalities I Work With:
Integrative, Person-centred, Solution-focused brief therapy, Neuro linguistic programming (NLP),
Existential & Life coaching.
I also draw on ‘Polyvagal Theory,’ developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, which supports gaining a better
understanding of how our autonomic nervous system works (the autonomic nervous system’s
primary role is in service of our safety and survival). This can help bring more awareness to those
times when we may feel overly stressed or anxious to help us better regulate ourselves,
physiologically and emotionally, so that we may adopt a more proportionate response to what we
are experiencing.

​Initially trained as person-centred counsellor, keeping you and what is important to you at the
centre of what we discuss is what my integrative approach is based on.

I support people, in exploring how healing, personal wellness, and growth can be achieved as we go through significant life

 job loss,
 relationship breakdown,
 life stage transition,
 health issues,
 absent friendships,
 reduced self-esteem,
 end of a valued role once held,
 loss of confidence.

Other Issues I Help With:
Abuse, anxiety, bereavement, depression, health related issues, life coaching, loneliness`
menopause, men's issues, personal development, post-traumatic stress, redundancy, self-esteem,
sexual orientation, stress, trauma, women's issues, work related issues.

Coming for Counselling -The First Step:

If you decide that you would like to come for counselling with me, once you book your first session I
will send you a copy of my Counselling Agreement, along with supporting counselling forms which
will give you a better understanding of my counselling service and having your counselling sessions
Having these counselling forms in advance of starting counselling gives you more time to reflect on
the information before starting counselling.

NB:  I am able to provide counselling to clients who are registered with a GP Medical Practice (General Practitioner) only.
