Sinead Shortall

Pre Accredited Psychotherapist

Sinead Shortall

Sinead has completed a BSc in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy at the Institute of Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy (IICP). She works exclusively with clients over the age of 18. Before becoming a Psychotherapist, Sinead was a Research Scientist, working as a Research Associate in a university, as well as managing a small team in a research company. She has a PhD in Neuroscience, which helps to inform her therapeutic work with clients, as understanding how our brains work and interact with our bodies can help us make sense of the natural, but sometimes difficult, feelings and physical reactions we all experience.

Life is filled with challenges, and at times can seem overwhelming, leaving us feeling worn out, down, and alone.


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. Her main goal as a therapist is to provide this safe and welcoming space to not only allow you to build your self-awareness and self-esteem in the therapy room, but also to expand your personal toolkit with the skills you need to flourish in your life. 

As an integrative psychotherapist with foundations in Person-Centred Therapy and Reality Therapy (a form of CBT), Sinead collaborates with her clients to identify and provide a therapy that best suits the client's personality, needs, and goals for therapy. Sinead has additional training in the therapeutic use of mindfulness which she believes not only allows her to provide the best therapy she can, but also equips her clients with important daily life skills.

Sinead loves to take long walks in nature, get lost in a good book, and is a novice (but enthusiastic) crocheter.
