Not all talking therapies are relational and counsellors are different…

Introducing Simon O’Brien 

Introducing Simon O’Brien

Hello and welcome. Do you ever look back on your life and think, “How did I end up here?”, or “What has happened to me?” Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one? Do your daily connections with others leave you feeling drained or unable to be your authentic self. Are you using substances, alcohol or prescription drugs to escape anxiety or societal pressures? Whatever it is you need help with, I offer a safe, impartial, non-judgemental space for you to explore more deeply.

I started my therapeutic journey when life got on top of me and I reached out for help. This was so life-changing for me that I wanted to be able to deliver the same kind of help to others who are struggling to navigate certain aspects of their lives. I will help you look at how we interact with others and ourselves.

My aim is to hold a safe, confidential space for you to speak about your life as you experience it without fear of judgement. I will listen to you and pay attention to how you are feeling. I have lived experience around trauma, neglect and bereavement and I work in the field of addiction. Here is an opportunity to explore what is really going on for you.

“Thank you for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself.”
“Thank you for helping me. I was so stressed out and you made me feel a
lot better.”
Thank you so much. You genuinely helped me a lot and you calmed me down when I was feeling so stressed out. I’m so glad you were there to help me through it… thanks to you I feel a lot better.
It is good to come and talk when I feel low and it has turned things around. I have felt very safe and at ease.
Counselling has made me see things in a different, more positive light.
I feel that I have regained my confidence.
