Clodagh Monaghan MIACP
Integrative Humanist Psychotherapist /Supervisor
B.Sc.(Hons), Dip. Counselling & Psychotherapy, Post Grad. Dip. Supervision
“I create a safe place where you can feel heard and your experiences acknowledged and valued
rather than judged. I understand that it is difficult to reveal all to someone you don’t know yet so I am patient and I will go at your pace.”
I am an Accredited Psychotherapist and Supervisor with the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. This means I have achieved the correct qualifications and clinical experience to be recognised as a validated practitioner. I have been in the caring profession since I volunteered for the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre Helpline in 2000 and have been in the counselling world ever since.
I have a Person Centred approach to therapy as I believe we all have the ability within us to become the person we want to be. It is my role to facilitate this transition. I also use an integrated therapeutic approach based on the needs of my clients. This means that I understand what might be helpful for one person might not necessarily suit another. My approach can meet your unique needs and bring about the desired changes in your life. I work from a holistic viewpoint as I appreciate the connection between mind, body and spirit. My passion in the work is a Somatic (Body) Psychotherapy called The Hakomi Method.
I explain this therapeutic approach on my website (www.clodaghmonaghancounselling.ie with an accompanying video of a Hakomi session .
I am an Accredited Supervisor with the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. My supportive role as a supervisor offers a space for the supervisee to explore growth facilitating interventions to support their clients in their search for change. I believe in developing a trustworthy supervisory relationship allowing personal and professional self reflection. I enjoy working in this different dimension of my profession.
Other counselling interests
I have incorporated other aspects of the counselling profession in to my life especially education. I am a lecturer on the Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy programme with PCI College. I also deliver a workshop every year to sixth class pupils, ‘Transitioning in to Secondary School’, in various primary schools This is a child-centred programme I developed to support children during this change in their lives.
I am also interested in blogging and furthering my education through Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programmes. I am participating in a three year training with Hakomi Ireland (www.hakomiireland.ie) at present.
You can contact me by phone call, text or email to make an appointment. I am available Monday to Friday and by special request I can facilitate Saturday appointments.
