Conor Delaney is a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor, with membership in the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, working under their ethics and guidelines. Conor has an honours degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and works with a range of clients from different backgrounds with differing issues.
Conor believes psychotherapy is a powerful journey of self-discovery. He approaches therapy non-judgmentally and with compassion in order to produce a strong therapeutic relationship that promotes empowerment and change. In this warm, empathetic and challenging environment, clients can safely explore themselves and their issues.
Conor takes a person-centred, humanistic and integrative approach. While retaining a keen interest in how our childhood experiences can impact our adult lives, Conor tailors the therapeutic process to meet the individual needs of the client.
With a genuine interest in providing a collaborative and integrated approach, Conor is currently furthering his education by completing a MSc in Pluralistic Psychotherapy this year. Pluralistic psychotherapy is a collaborative and integrative approach, rooted in humanistic and person-centred values. Its core premise is that each client is unique, and therefore may need different things from therapy. With this in mind, pluralistic psychotherapy seeks to create a framework in which a wide variety of schools of thought and methods can be integrated into practice. Collaborative decision making is a key element of the pluralistic approach: talking to clients about what they want from therapy, and how they might most effectively be helped to get there.
Conor applies his skills to a broad range of issues facing people today including:
Awareness and insight into life’s current difficulties
Grief and loss
Loss of direction or meaning in life
Low Self Esteem / Low Self Worth
Self-care and well-being
