Description

I have been a practicing biofeedback therapist for 15 years. Born in Bray, Co. Wicklow, I completed a degree in psychology in California State University and studied to be certified by the Biofeedback Certificate Institute of America (now renamed the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance or BCIA). I began my career as a member of an interdisciplinary team pain management programme in Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, California (A teaching hospital for Stanford University). I also worked in the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) and Rehab. Psych. departments in the hospital for over 10 years. The department's worked with people who had a spinal cord injury (SCI) or an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI/TBI). I also provided group and individual services as part of his consultancy. Clients, as well as inpatients and individuals included Hewlett Packard, Stanford University’s medical school, Siemens, Santa Clara Valley Medical Centre and Kaiser Permanente. I specialise in helping people manage stress, anxiety, sleep and chronic pain (of various types). I am interested in learning more about the role of the brain in self-regulation and being certified as a neurofeedback practitioner. In addition to my private practice I have taught in Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University, Oscail, St Patrick’s, Drumcondra and am currently Academic Co-ordinator for a private college on Merrion Square. I have supervised and trained many therapists over the years and was a guest lecturer for a preparation course on biofeedback in St Vincent’s hospital. I was also a regular lecturer for Stanford University’s medical residency programme and California State University’s (Sonoma) psychology degree. I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Assoc for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) and am a fellow of the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA ). My first face to face session is free of charge.
