Emma Gavin

Emma Gavin


Emma is a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist and and holds a BA. in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy. She is a pre-accredited member of the IACP. and holds a BA. in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy. This ‘holistic’ element is an important element of her practice: we are complex human beings with multiple facets – stemming from the dynamics of the relationship with ourselves, with others, the world around us and the various events that have shaped our lives or sometimes, those of our family or ancestors. These dynamics can influence consciously or unconsciously. Through her training in systemic practice or family constellation facilitation, she offers an opportunity to explore these aspects and make peace with them. This non-bias systemic space can offer what needs to be acknowledged, seen, heard, or felt to come forth, for healing to occur.

In Emma’s previous career, she has worked with a wide range of large organisations, across various countries and so understands the stresses of demanding work environments, work relationships and country relocations. Emma is open, empathetic and supportive and her work is inclusive across all ethnicity, culture, religion, and social backgrounds.

Emma is experienced with Anxiety, Grief, Loss, Trauma, Stress and Depression. She is passionate about providing person-centred support to her clients to develop and nurture their personal resourcefulness, inner strength, and self-empowerment. Supporting clients to support themselves is the underpinning ethos of her work.

Online Therapy can help you with all of the same issues as Face to Face therapy.

Our Therapists are experienced and skilled to deal with a wide range of issues that can cause emotional distress. These can include Anxiety, Stress, Work Related Stress, Depression, Trauma, Abuse, PTSD, Loss, Bereavement, Self-esteem, OCD, Phobias, addressing negative thought patterns, Sexuality and Sexual identity, Relationship issues and more.

Do not hesitate to bring any issue that may be troubling you to your sessions with your Therapist, they will be equipped to help you manage or overcome it.

All our therapists are based in Ireland and are fully accredited members of the key counselling and psychotherapy professional bodies in this country and whose professional standards and code of ethics they abide by. You can therefore expect the same high standard of professional care as in traditional Face to Face therapy. 

However, while the service may have similar benefits, it’s not capable of substituting for traditional face-to-face therapy in every case.

Please note that your provider won’t be able to make any official diagnosis, to fulfill any court order or prescribe medication.

This depends on your needs and varies a lot from one person to another.

Some people feel they get most of the value after just a few weeks, while others prefer to stick to the program for an extended period of time.

This is completely up to you.

There are many studies that confirm the effectiveness of the online medium for making life changes.

Our confidence in the platform comes primarily from the feedback and testimonials we receive from users. Every day we are excited to hear from more people about the way this service helped them make a tremendous change in their lives.

Online Therapy offers exactly the same support as traditional Face to Face therapy, except that the platform is Online. 

People choose Online Therapy mainly for convenience:

-There is no travel time involved and no issues around traffic or finding somewhere to park. 

-Therapy is available from the privacy and comfort of your own home or from any other location you may choose. 

-It is extremely discreet because you can access it from your home. 

-You can access a Therapist of your choosing even if he/she is not located in your vicinity. This can be especially convenient if you live in a rural area. 

-You can avail of therapy even if you struggle to leave the house. 

– It can be a good way to try therapy if you haven’t done so before as some people find it less daunting than attending for an in person session at a therapy clinic.  

– If you need to travel for any reason, you can keep your therapy going without interruption. 

However, while Online therapy may have similar benefits, it’s not capable of substituting for traditional face-to-face therapy in every case.

If at any stage your therapist believes that, in their professional opinion, you would be more suitable for Face to Face therapy, they will discuss this with you and we will be happy to source you an alternative in-person Therapist.

You can read an article HERE about how to prepare in order to get the most benefit from your Online Therapy session.
