BARBARA REA

She works with individuals and families from a systemic perspective, knowing that we experience wounds through relationships but through relationships we can also find healing. Barbara uses a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), family systems theory, positive and humanistic psychology, mindfulness and play therapy. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Szeged, a Masters Degree in MPHil Psychoanalytic Studies from Trinity College Dublin and other numerous qualifications which enable her to transform lives of clients who may be facing difficulties such as anxiety, depression, grief, self-esteem or relationship issues, acculturative and immigration stress. She is also trained in child and adolescent psychotherapy, using play therapy when necessary which allows her to help children cope during difficult periods.
