Mairead de Barra, B.A., H. Dip. In Ed., Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy

I work primarily in the consultancy, training and management aspects of the practice.

I have extensive experience in education. I trained and worked as a volunteer telephone counsellor with the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. In 2003 I completed a four year diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy in the Institute of Creative Counselling and Psychotherapy and subsequently, I worked in private practice as a psychotherapist with individuals. This work included counselling both second and third level students.

I was a member of the S.A.V.I. research team being involved from the outset in all aspects of the project including devising and implementing the pilot and the main research programme, recruiting and training the research team, running focus groups and writing the final report.

In my work I value the authenticity of the therapeutic relationship and its capacity to illuminate and inform the clients’ relationships with others and with themselves. At present I am particularly interested in devising and delivering training programmes relating to various life stages which incorporate this approach.
