Dr Cóilín Ó Braonáin Reg.Psychol., Ps.S.I. has been practising psychotherapy and psychology in Limerick and the Mid-West of Ireland for 15 years. He works with adults, adolescents and children using a variety of psychological therapies.
He holds a Bachelor’s Degree (magna cum lauda) in Psychology and Philosophy from Marquette University in Wisconsin, USA. A Master’s degree in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (1st) was awarded by the University of Limerick. More recently Cóilín earned a doctorate in Developmental Psychology at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. Other courses completed include a Certificate in Play Therapy from the Children’s Therapy Centre in Westmeath and a certificate in Filial Play Coaching from Play Therapy Ireland.
The types of psychotherapy treatment available from MindHealing® include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Play Therapy. Treatment is humanistic and gently directive. This means that the whole person is taken into account so that the obvious problem (e.g. depression) is not viewed in isolation. While the client’s needs and wishes are fully-respected, Cóilín does suggest changes in outlook and lifestyle to help the client move-on from his or her current impasse.
Cóilín is a professional accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
