Adolescents arrive in therapy for many different reasons. Sometimes their parents want them to go and other times teachers or doctors may suggest therapy.

Ennis Therapy Centre

Play is essential for a child to develop physically, emotionally, and socially, and is a natural medium of self-expression. Children may experience problems with feelings or behaviours that cause disruption to their lives and the lives of those around them.


Located in Multyfarnham, 15mins from Mullingar town, I specialise in counselling, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and integrated creative therapies, helping individuals to work through their concerns in a private, relaxed and safe environment.
I offer my services to children, teens, adults and couples. The service is located in a private setting with car parking and provides a safe, confidential space for people to explore a range of challenges.


Most children move through developmental milestones easily, however, there are times when things are not so seamless and if that is something that has happened in your child’s life, it may be helpful to see a professional Play or Child Therapist.  Stepping into therapy can be an anxious time for parents, however having made the decision, you are not alone as the therapist will work with you towards change in the issues the child is presenting with.
