Talking Solutions was founded by Áine Egan, a member of the IACP.
She graduated from the Tivoli institute in 2009, is an experienced counsellor & psychotherapist with a background in community development, training and group facilitation. Talking Solutions offer counselling in Arklow, Co. Wicklow and Greystones. Support to teenagers (13 years plus) and adults dealing with change and the following stresses;
- Low-self esteem
- Anxiety & Phobias
- Work-related Stress
- Emotional, sexual, physical abuse
- Recovery from addiction
I have been privileged to share people’s lives in many different environments and this has shaped my approach to supporting others. Experience has taught me that any process of change is unique for each person. Effective counselling is not a one-size-fits-all but works towards change and well-being over time in mind, body, and spirit.
Although there are many different approaches used research indicates that a trusting, supportive relationship with your counsellor is critical to supporting personal change. My approach is humanistic and person-centred using cognitive behavioural therapy and practical techniques to promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and improved confidence.
