Unhappiness and feeling unable to cope can be an overwhelming and lonely experience. Whatever the source of unhappiness, recognising that help is needed and asking for it is never easy. That’s when it can be helpful to have the professional help of a counsellor – free from judgement and who can help you overcome a problem.
Geraldine Brennan, MIACP, Dip Person Centred Counselling, BA (Hons) Soc, offers counselling and psychotherapy services in Dublin South, Dublin city, Dublin 6.
I am a qualified counsellor accredited by the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) with many years of experience in providing both short and long term counselling. My philosophy is that each person is unique and deserves that I work with them individually and specifically. For this purpose, I use Humanistic and Person Centred Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).
I provide a private, confidential, supportive and caring space, where you can talk without fear of judgement.
I have experience in working with a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depression, panic attacks, stress, work difficulties, bereavement, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, anger, OCD, self esteem and confidence building
Taking the first Step

I offer an initial consultation, with no further obligation, to help you decide whether you think counselling with me will be helpful.

What My Clients Say
“I was having panic attacks and sometimes paralysed with social anxiety, I had reached rock bottom and I wanted help. I felt comfortable being open to Geraldine about who I am, was, and want to be. My confidence has grown day by day and I feel I’m getting back to the person who I was meant to be. Geraldine is very patient and gives 100% to her clients. She is very aware and sensitive to given situations. I would like to thank Geraldine whole heartedly. I went seeking counselling with a lot of fear and I left with a lot of pride and confidence.”
D, Harolds Cross, Dublin 6.
“Just a note to say how much our sessions mean’t to me. You are a very kind, empathetic, caring person. The safe, confidential and caring environment that you provided was an oasis of calm which was conducive to such openness and honesty. I hope you know how much your help meant to me and I have no doubt to your other clients.”
R, Portobello, Dublin 2, Bereavement.
“I was referred to Geraldine by my GP who was treating me for depression and stress which was building and building inside of me. Being a man, I was very nervous of talking about my feelings, especially to a stranger. But I was amazed at how quickly Geraldine put me at my ease and helped me to tease out what was at the root of my low mood. Geraldine has given me tools to help me manage my moods. I understand myself better now and feel much more relaxed.”
J, Templeogue, Dublin South.
“I cannot truly thank you enough Geraldine, your kindness and consideration were so generously given, your guidance was respectful. I am relieved to have found your help and am so much more aware of myself and my life, and have the strength and self-knowledge to get through the challenges of life.”
