My name is Dónal Carmody I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. I offer both short and long term counselling for individuals and groups. I use a Relational Approach as I believe that our relationships are important in the development of oneself, especially those relationships we form in early childhood.


There are times when we all need help with life's challenges. I can offer you a space to reflect and think in the hope that this will lead to better understanding, self-awareness and change. Alot of people I see have a feeling of getting stuck or going round in circles. Often immersed in difficult feelings including anxiety, stress, anger or depression. Counselling can be that space where concerns, difficulties and fears, can be explored and shared. An opportunity to unpick, uncover and repair issues/concerns.


I am originally from Ireland and I have been living here in the UK for the last 15 years. I have travelled a lot in past and lived in different cultures, which has given me a huge perspective on life. I come from an arts background where I studied graphic design and illustration. This creative edge sometimes supports me in the counselling room where clients might not be able to describe traumas/ distress/ anxieties into words.
