Biography:

Ken has over twenty years’ experience working in Irish mental health organisations and in private practice. Ken has a special interest and comprehensive clinical experience in helping persons who are having suicidal feelings or deliberately self-harming. A compassionate and caring response is provided to all persons experiencing these extremely difficult and disturbing issues. This is coupled with a step by step therapeutic approach aimed at reassuring, supporting and helping the suicidal person and finding alternative ways of coping in situations of self-harming. Ken is also skilled in providing family support in such circumstances and he works with families who have been bereaved through suicide. Therapy begins with a comprehensive assessment followed by an explanation of the treatment process. Collaboration and a commitment to working together are established. Therapy is focused on achieving safety, getting effective supports in place, identifying coping strategies and resolving the underlying issues. Learning how to effectively manage one’s own mental health and wellness, fostering a strong sense of self-empowerment and building resilience are considered crucially important. Ken also works with persons who are having difficulties coping with general mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and personal identity issues. He helps persons undergoing difficult life circumstances such as bereavement, separation and loss, parenting and relationship problems. Ken works with persons of all ages from twelve years upwards. His therapeutic approach is focused and centred on the needs of the client.
