Brina Casey

I am an accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, abiding by their Code of Ethics and committed to on-going professional development.

I completed my initial training as a psychotherapist with the Tivoli Institute, Dun Laoghaire, between 2009 and 2015. Between 2013 and 2015, I also gained an MSc in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from Trinity College Dublin.

I have worked in a variety of counselling and psychotherapy settings, including with Pieta House and the Loreto Centre, Crumlin. Having worked with a range of presenting issues and clients, I am skilled and experienced in both long-term psychodynamic process work, as well as implementing more solution-focused, brief counselling interventions.




What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy involves talking one-to-one, with a professional therapist in an open and respectful atmosphere. By offering a safe, non-judgemental space for personal exploration and development, the psychotherapist helps clients to address issues that may feel stressful, overwhelming and even hopeless. Through this process the client can gain insight and perspective, and feel empowered to make changes to the habitual patterns and behaviours that no longer work for them.


How long will therapy last?

It is difficult to answer this question as there are many factors that may be impacting on a person’s mental health and the length of treatment is greatly dependent upon what it is that you need to work through. The development of a good working relationship between the therapist and client is a very important part of the process and so, in order to allow for this, I ask that clients initially agree to 6 – 8 sessions.


Is therapy confidential?

Yes. Professional requirements require therapists to be in supervision and to abide by child protection legislation. Hence, aside from specific questions of safety, everything that I am told in a session is strictly confidential. I will fully discuss this with every client during our first consultation.
