What My Clients Say
My life around alcohol has changed dramatically in the last 3 years since I started recovery counselling with Orlagh. Every day I am happy with my life, boundaries and routine are important for me so the monthly sessions help me to to focus and refocus each time.
I am 3 years in sexual recovery, it is so easy to live now. It feels good to feel good again and appreciate the simple things in life. Orlagh has supported me every step of my recovery journey.
I sought out a fertility counsellor in the run up to my fifth round of IVF. It was very important to me to work with someone who was knowledgeable about fertility issues and the trauma and stress related to it. I found the perfect psychotherapist in Orlagh.
As a recovering addict, Orlagh’s understanding of addiction really helps, and her empathetic approach makes it easy to share what I need to share. I really feel that I have started to delve deeper into myself and I believe I have begun to look at the root of my problems
I was able to let down barriers and deal with deeply emotional issues and memories and it provided insight into the roots of my behaviours. To have someone with the skills to highlight with a simple question where I was allowing myself to rationalise or minimise negative behaviours was also really valuable.
I have been through counselling three times and worked through my traumatic history of being abused. I struggled however to break an addiction cycle to porn and previously decided to stop but was unable, because of the work with my counsellor Orlagh, I am finally understanding my attachment style, addiction and how that has impacted on my feelings, thoughts and behaviours.
With the support I received from my therapist Orlagh, my partner and my family I don’t feel trapped by porn addiction anymore. I can now openly talk about it with all of them and I no longer feel shame or embarrassment.
I started counselling with Orlagh following the breakdown of a long-term relationship and dealing with infidelity which impacted on my identity & self-confidence. She carefully guided me through every aspect of what was happening for me, helped me to identify feelings, gently challenged my 'self-talk' and has really given me a huge boost of confidence in so many ways. Now I am able to grow and progress from my experiences and move foward.
