Hello and welcome to my website. I’m a clinical psychologist, specialising in working with children, teenagers and their families with over 20 years experience. I’m also Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Psychology, UCD.
The heart of my work is my clinical practice and I meet with children and teenagers with a whole host of psychological issues ranging from anxiety, to self-harm, bullying, social isolation, school related difficulties, family conflict, challenging behaviour, abuse related trauma, coping with chronic medical issues and sometimes work exclusively with parents on their parenting of their family.

I am the regular parenting expert on The Sean O’Rourke Show on RTÉ Radio 1 and write a weekly Q&A column in the Irish Independent, Health and Living Section.
I’m married with three children, although two of them have moved into their adulthood already, so the house is a little bit quieter than it used to be, since they have flown the coop.
I live and work in County Clare, so am blessed to be surrounded by lots of space, clean air and easy access to Lough Derg, where I pursue my biggest passion outside my work and family – sailing.
