Hi, I’m John
I am from Dublin and I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist and I am pre-accredited with the IAHIP – Irish Association of Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy. I work utilising a “stress model” from a humanistic & relational framework. This promotes self-awareness for clients and empowers them to identify the causes of harmful stressors (triggers), while developing self-care and self-safety practices so as to bring a sense of balance and harmony to their day to day functioning.
I feel very privileged to be able to work with people from all backgrounds, gender and sexual orientation who feel stuck in their lives and seeing their transformation through the changes they make that help them move forward in life.
What brought me to become an Eating Freely Practitioner?
Following on from my own personal experiences of self-harm/injury and subsequently conducting my MSc degree on the subject; integrating a focus on food and nutrition seemed the logical next step. This was supported by how much the issue came up in the room when working with clients who didn’t necessarily present with this issue. I realised there was a whole other area which I needed to know about. At the time I was supporting clients who were struggling with body image or who were restricting through pop diets who never felt like they could have a normal relationship with food and never got the lasting results they longed for. Through simple but effective tools, some deep work and self-compassion practices I have witnessed them break the vicious circle of Emotional Eating.
This is what the Eating Freely program is about and what makes it so comprehensive and useful: Through the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Neuroscience, Mindfulness and Nutritional Rehabilitation included in the 12 week program, we work together to finally break the cycle and establish mindful habits that will heal your relationship with food and with yourself.
