Mary O’Regan, Counselling, Psychotherapy & Mediation

Life isn’t plain sailing for any of us, all of the time. Sometimes, we get stuck – a major crisis presents itself; we may find ourselves unable to cope. Finding a Counsellor-Psychotherapist who is trained to listen, to support and facilitate working through these issues, can help get you back on track.

Mary's Psychotherapy and Mediation Services include:
  • Counselling (Short Term) – Clonakilty.
  • Psychotherapy (Longer Term) – Clonakilty.
  • Mediation Service – West Cork and Cork County.

Mary O’Regan is a fully accredited and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. She offers a patient, non-judgemental, and confidential service that can assist and support people in working through difficulties they may experience within a wide range of issues.

Other reasons for seeking support:
  • Family difficulties and Parenting support.
  • Difficulty coping with a particular crisis or with life in general.
  • Sustained lack of joy and fulfillment.
  • Health issues.

Mary welcomes young people from 18 years upwards, and men and women of all cultures, sexual orientation, all religions or none.  If you are unsure or nervous, Mary can put your mind at ease by a short phone call to her, to work out if this therapy might help you to get on track with your life.

Beginning with the recognition of what’s good and what’s working, Mary’s role is to assist her clients to address their difficulties, within a supportive environment.  While a person may choose to attend for short-term counselling to address one particular difficulty in their life, Mary also recognises the benefits of more in-depth psychotherapy work with clients. If you choose to attend over a longer period, I can support you in making effective and long lasting change in your life.

Mary adopts a respectful non-judgemental approach.  Her aim is to empower her clients to get back in the driving seat and direct their own lives, living them to the full. Her hope is for you to truly appreciate that.
