Dympna Doherty

Adult Psychotherapist and Counsellor


"I firmly believe that our past does not define us, that there is always the potential for change and that life is for living not just existing."


My name is Dympna Doherty and I am a qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Reiki practitioner.  I am a pre-accredited member of IACP and am fully compliant with their code of Ethics.    
My approach to Counselling, Psychotherapy and Reiki is to meet each client where they are at in their life. I incorporate various theories to suit each client individually. I firmly believe that every individual holds the key within themselves to overcome distress and improve their life. To achieve this I will offer you an integrated approach in taking that journey of recovery to improve your mental and physical well-being.  We will work together on creating a therapeutic relationship which in turn will allow for the safe exploration and understanding of the true you. We will work at a pace that suits you and at a depth that is comfortable for you.  The space I offer is one of safety, where there is no judgement and where your experience of any given issue will be treated with utmost respect and confidentiality.  While Person Centred Therapy is my initial approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Choice Theory/RealityTherapy, will be intertwined as the client’s needs arise. 
While Reiki is an added option, this is totally at the client’s discretion. Reiki can offer the client the chance to “just be”.  It is often very effective in helping a client who is expressing stress and or anxiety to relax, while their mind and body are being brought back into balance.
