My name is Linda Gillen and I help people struggling with worry, loss, anxiety, panic, grief, anger, stress and related issues. Seeing people begin to feel better about themselves and experience their relationships, their work and daily living in a more meaningful, fulfilling and self compassionate way is what continues to inspire me in this work.
I am a professionally trained Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Life Coach working in private practice in the City centre and in South Dublin and am fully accredited with the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As we continue to navigate Covid-19 restrictions, I am also available to work with you online either via video or telephone.
I work from a humanistic and integrative approach where I draw from extensive therapeutic skills and experience that responds to specific needs of my individual clients. My practice is routed in creating a safe, open, respectful and transparent therapeutic relationship with my clients where I value my capacity to be available and present.
I am here to help you, help yourself.
Prior to my therapy training, my client work began ten years earlier in a coaching context, working with professionals suffering from burnout, stress and conflict with balancing a sense of their professional and personal life experience.
My therapeutic approach is based on person-centred values whilst also incorporating psychodynamic, existential. cognitive-behavioural, and mindfulness based approaches.
