Andrei Tcaciuc
Psychotherapist

Throughout the years, Andrei has focused on helping individuals to improve their mental health and to work on alleviating their personal difficulties. He uses a psychoanalytical approach to help people explore how the unconscious mind affects current relationships and patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour, especially in the context of continually experiencing loss and traumatic events.

Andrei has been helping people to become aware of the underlying sources of their difficulties, intellectually and emotionally, and to develop coping skills that would allow them to deal with the realities of their life situation. He offers a talking therapy which rather than trying to get rid of the problem, allows individuals to come to understand the experiences which have shaped their lives and are affecting their ability to deal with current difficulties. The purpose of this insight is to help them to bring about major change on their whole life perspective.

Areas of expertise (include, but not limited to): trauma, loss, grief, bereavement, anxiety, self-harm, addiction, eating disorders, stress, depression, gender issues, sexual identity, relationship difficulties, phobias, chronic fatigue, loneliness and isolation.

This collaborative integrative approach to therapy allows the therapist to draw from a number of interventions in the process of finding the most effective way to help. A key element of the pluralistic approach is shared decision making: talking to clients about what they want from therapy, and how they might most effectively be helped to get there.

 

Claire is an accredited member of the APCP (Association of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Ireland) and the ACP. She attends regular personal therapy. Has regular supervision and has undertaken numerous extracurricular courses in pursuit of better understanding the many innovative ways of working in therapy.

Kamila works from humanistic-integrative perspective. She combines ideas from different therapeutic orientations depending on the unique needs of a given client.

 

Kamila believes that the most important aspect of counselling is building a strong therapeutic relationship with clients.

Her work is based on psychoanalytic theories which emphasise the importance of unconscious processes and the power of language. Kamila believes that the human-subject is primarily a speaking-subject and therefore language founds the core of our being. Language / speech has the potential to transform - listening and suitably responding to a person’s speech can create a lasting change.

Sinead has seen firsthand how providing a supportive and non-judgemental space, in a gentle and sensitive manner, can help people take the steps they need to face these challenges. She believes each of us contains all the strength and ability within us that we need to heal, grow, build resilience, and create meaning in our lives.
