Isobel Mahon is the director of The Park Counselling and Psychotherapy. She is an Integrative counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor (MIAHIP, MIACP) and has been working with clients on both a long-term and short-term solution-focused basis for over twenty years.
She also does a weekly problem slot on Today with Maura and Daithi on RTE Television as #Ask Isobel.
Integrative Therapy means that the counsellor / therapist is trained in a variety of approaches including Psychodynamic (insight based), CBT (life skills based) and Gestalt/ bodywork (process based) on a Client-Centred / Rogerian basis.
Isobel doesn’t use a one-size-fits-all approach as she believes that everybody has a unique nature, upbringing and life circumstances that have brought them to counselling.
For example, one person may suffer from negative thought patterns resulting in them experiencing a downward spiral in terms of self-esteem and life expectations. This can best be addressed using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), whereas another person may have difficulties that come from earlier, unresolved issues calling for a more Humanistic or Psychodynamic approach. Another person might be dealing with a crisis situation related to work, relationships, health or family and may need help to recognise what is happening and to mobilise their own resources in order to make sense of and to manage the situation in the best way possible.
