I would like to wish a very Happy New Year to all my clients, supervisees, students and colleagues.
The Hakomi Method - 3 Year Training 2016-2019
I attended a workshop in 2009 by the late Ron Kurtz, the founder of The Hakomi Method. It is with a great sense of achievement that I have now completed my three-year training with Hakomi Ireland. This training was enriched along the way by Therapy Circle Workshops, Hakomi Community Weekends, Peer Group Practice as well as Clinical Supervision. I also had the honor of being trained by one of the Hakomi Legacy Holders, Bob Millone. It is my intention to continue my study further in 2020 to level 4 & 5. I integrate the Hakomi Method in to my therapeutic practice with clients/supervisees and students.
When we attend therapy, we are wondering about ourselves, not who we think we are, but being curious about who we truly are. We are all defined by our habits, behaviors and beliefs and these traits are influenced by our own unique Core Material. Our core material is composed of our memories, images, beliefs, neural patterns and deeply held emotional dispositions. Therefore, we can unconsciously respond to life events, daily interactions etc based on this core material. Sometimes this can support who we want to be, however, sometimes we react by using a learnt behavior that we used in response to past trauma, this unfortunately limits us. The Hakomi method allows the individual to distinguish between the two and change the core material that impinges upon their wellbeing.

I would like to wish all my clients, supervisees, students and colleagues a very Happy Christmas. Clodagh 24/12/19
Once upon a time ….
there was a happy little bear who spent his days playing in the forest with his friends. One day while he was rolling around he stood on a thorn. It went deep into his foot and it hurt. He went home and told his mother, but she was busy and didn’t pay attention to him. He continued on and began to limp a little, as his paw became more tender. He was in pain and he learnt to compensate for it. His paw got bigger from the infection and he stopped rolling around with his friends and became grumpier and grumpier as the infection affected him all over. As the years went on he became known as the grumpy old Bear and people avoided him.
One day as he was walking dragging his hurt leg through the forest he met a little bear who was crying, and he stopped and asked him what the matter was. The little bear had a thorn in his paw and he was in pain. The big bear knelt down and gently eased it out and the little bear went off happy. Later that evening he was in the pub with all the other elder bears and told him about the little bear. One of the elder bears said to him that’s what happened to you a long time ago. If you could go and have your wound treated it could change your life for you too. Doctor Bear could make a small incision and drain the infection bit by bit. It might hurt but you will feel so much better afterwards so the bear agreed reluctantly and the following summer he was able to roll around the grass with the all bear cubs.
After 4 years of dedicating one day a week to working in Phibsboro I have decided to now move my practice full time to the Dublin 2 area. I operate from two well located practices; D2 Counselling in 42b Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2 and around the corner in Aria Therapy Wellness at 7 Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin 2. Both rooms are within a ten minutes walk from St Stephen's Green. They are both easily accessible by public transport (Luas & Bus). There is also plenty of on-street parking in the surrounding area. You can contact me on 086 8034888 and firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you. Clodagh
I have been very fortunate to find beautiful new rooms in Aria Therapy Wellness on 7 Upper Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin 2. (www.ariatherapy.com)
Coincidentally they are around the corner from my other Dublin 2 rooms at 42b Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2. (www.d2counselling.ie)
The location is excellent with plenty of on-street parking outside and also amenable to public transport.
Despite my practice mainly being in the Dublin 2 area, I continue to spend one day per week in Phibsboro. (www.thehealinghouse.ie)

I would like to wish all my clients, supervisees and students a very Happy Christmas. Much thanks also to my colleagues and Hakomi Ireland for all their support, learning and friendship in 2018.

As much as I enjoy being a Psychotherapist and Lecturer, I thoroughly enjoy my role as a Supervisor. It is part of our ethical practice to ensure we bring our work to supervision. Indeed, it is a stipulation of our governing bodies.
It can be a challenging experience for the Student Therapist as they begin their college’s clinical hours’ requirement. I enjoy being part of the journey that students are about to embark upon; supporting them by providing supervision throughout their college years.
The Pre-Accredited Therapist, having completed the educational aspect of their Psychotherapy career now begin their governing body’s clinical requirement towards accreditation. I offer a supporting supervision space while they make this transition.
The Accredited Therapist requires supervision as they build their practice. It is an exciting time having achieved qualifications and accreditation. I believe my supervision can support their practice development experience as well as their case work concerns.
There are many Care Professionals outside the counselling world who can benefit from clinical supervision. I offer this support and find it can be very beneficial to have outside support with an external supervisor like myself.
If you require further information about by Supervision service, please have a look at the relevant page on my website. You also may contact me by telephone or email as I am happy to discuss with you your supervision requirements.
