Michael approaches the treatment of anxiety in a holistic manner, commencing with the establishment of a nurturing rapport and a comprehensive understanding of the issue at hand. His therapeutic approach proceeds to delve into the intricate dynamics of anxiety, unraveling its effects on an individual’s mental, physical, emotional, and behavioral facets, as well as its potential to alienate us from our authentic selves.
Therapeutic sessions encompass a dynamic blend of authentic interpersonal connection, psychoeducational insights, personalized homework assignments, and additional behavioral challenges that clients willingly embrace. This multifaceted approach guarantees the cultivation of enduring and impactful transformations from one session to the next.
Within Michael’s specialized treatment repertoire, he focuses on addressing a wide spectrum of issues, including General Anxiety, Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Perfectionism, Procrastination, physical manifestations of anxiety, inner critic/child work, boundaries, belief restructuring, and the transformation of our emotional relationships.
Michael is a fully accredited psychotherapist (IACP, IAHIP, ICP Accredited, B.A., MPhil., Msc., Clinical Diploma in Integrative Counseling and Psychotherapy) with an interest in CBT, Mindfulness, Shamanism as well as Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Existential and Transpersonal Psychology.
Michael offers his services to clients with varying needs, accommodating those who seek short-term, intensive interventions to confront their anxiety challenges directly, as well as individuals who are committed to embarking on a deep and transformative long-term healing journey.
Away from CBT and focussed anxiety work Michael is also fascinated by the power of psychedelic therapy for transformational therapies. He also works for InwardBound Psilocybin Retreats in the Netherlands and runs his own other service Psychedelic Integration Ireland which helps clients who have worked with these modalities. In his spare time Michael is the chairperson and co-founder of a non profit social enterprise PsyCare Ireland: Welfare and Harm Recution CLG that provides mental health support, harm reduction information and substance induced crisis intervention to the patrons at Irish music festivals and concerts.
