Mary Murphy

Welcome to my website. I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in Cork City Centre.

I work with adults experiencing specific issues or more general feelings of life dissatisfaction on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. I am committed to assisting and enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling and Psychotherapy can bring relief to the emotional pain we all suffer from at different times in our lives. People seek counselling most often in response to a life problem they can’t see their way out of, or a crisis they need some relief from and help with managing. It is an exploratory, slow and gentle process that takes place over weeks, months or longer.

Specific Issues

Overwhelming feelings and symptoms can be triggered and manifest at any time, sometimes following a significant life event or trauma while at other times they seem to come from nowhere.

  • bereavement and loss
  • relationship struggle and breakdown up
  • redundancy
  • coping with illness (self or loved one)
  • suicidal thoughts
  • self-harm
  • low confidence or self esteem
  • alienation
  • loneliness
  • isolation
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • difficulty in forming or managing relationships
  • abuse (childhood, recent, current)
  • bullying

  • If any of this resonates with what you are experiencing counselling and psychotherapy can provide a space of support and reorientation.

    General Life Dissatisfaction

    Dissatisfaction can arise when we realise we don’t have the life we imagined. Most of us grow up, consciously or unconsciously with some image of how life should be and will be, while invariably it turns out to be not at all what we expected and the gap between our expectations and our reality can have quite an impact.

  • Maybe life has not turned out as you hoped or believed it would
  • Feelings of loss and sadness without being able to point to something specific
  • Lack of zest for life or a longing for something but can’t seem to find it
  • Life just feels like a constant struggle
  • Difficulty in making or breaking relationships, friendships or other attachments
  • Feeling lost and alone in your life
  • Intuitively know what you want but are struggling to manifest it in your life
  • Can’t seem to find nourishment, meaning or fulfilment

  • Next Step

    My practice is in central Cork, close to the GPO and opposite The Oliver Plunkett Bar on Oliver Plunkett Street. Although my room is in the city centre, it is a private, quite space on the top floor of a large building with lots of other businesses and services.
