Maeve has been working in private practice as a Reflexologist, Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist and Craniosacral Therapist for over 20 years. During this time the mind and body connection had become more and more evident to her and she realised that they cannot be separated. This encouraged her to further her studies and to qualify as a counsellor and psychotherapist in 2011.
Maeve works with many issues including anxiety, depression, loss, grief and self-harm. She knows it takes great courage to ask for help as counselling can feel a little challenging and uncomfortable at times, but this is normal. Maeve hopes to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can be your real self. She wants you to know you're not alone and she is here to listen.

"I reached out for help, at a very low point in my life. Maeve was there. Maeve guided me and gave me the space to feel comfortable and helped put me at ease every single time.
Maeve listened to my every word, picking up on things, I didn’t even realise myself. Maeve remembered the littlest of details from our sessions and grew them into deeper more meaningful discussions. Anytime I got overwhelmed, as ever, calm and collected Maeve was there to guide me through.
I can honestly say a year of working with Maeve, I am now myself (with actual working coping techniques) , and the best version of that because of her. I would not be where I am without Maeve, her guidance and knowledge."
“I first met Maeve when I was going through a rough patch in my life mostly down to work related stress. Maeve was phenomenal from the first meeting, always attentive, never judgmental and taught me coping strategies to get me through such a difficult time. I never considered myself an anxious person however Maeve helped me realise that being a chronic worrier and having negative thoughts made me more anxious than I realised. I developed new skills to help me. I became aware how I was looking for validation from others and discovered ways to validate myself which has helped with my self confidence. Looking back on it now I do not know how I would have got to where I am now without her support. I would recommend Maeve to anyone."
"I worked with Maeve for over a year. I reached out initially for help navigating through a confusing time in my life. She was adaptable to whatever I needed, whether that be continuing to explore and work on my grief and confusion, or just getting the general discomfort and inconvenience of covid and it’s restrictions off my chest.
When I found Maeve on Online Counselling I was very anxious about finding the “right” therapist for me and also a little anxious about doing it over the phone versus in person. From the first moment of contact my mind was put at ease, I knew we were the right fit and I had the trust and confidence to use our weekly chats as a very safe open and non-judgmental space.
She was the best therapist I could have asked for so flexible, easy to talk to, great listener and always touching base with how I was feeling and ensuring I was still getting the most out of each session. I would recommend Maeve in a heartbeat and will never doubt in reaching back out if I feel I need the help and support at another time in my life."
“I felt like Maeve caught every word I said and was genuinely with me --even through my jumble of thoughts. In some sessions, I wasn’t focused at all, but Maeve still helped me pull out areas where I needed a boost or reminder in helpful coping techniques. ?? Meeting online is much easier than going to an unfamiliar place to talk, and Maeve was very accommodating with scheduling. I chose to make visual records of each session to share at our next meeting. Sometimes, this process helped me express visceral emotions and complicated events. Through sharing these pieces with Maeve, I sometimes discovered even deeper meaning, and this reinforced the progress I made. Thank you Maeve for being so easy to talk with!” N.M.
