Returning to full-time practice


This was published when I decided to resign from Barnardos and return to full time private practice as Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist in East Cork and Youghal.

The Dungarvan Observer is delighted to announce that Sally O’Reilly is returning her successful Private Practice to 5 full days a week. Furthermore, she is now taking referrals for children and families.

Sally has been in private practice as a Counselling Psychologist , Psychotherapist and Supervisor for over fifteen years in Youghal and Cork City. Having been in full-time private practice for ten years she took on a part time role in Barnardos, Ireland leading Children’s Charity where she worked for over six years as a Bereavement Therapist for children and families. Sally describes the experience she gained there as invaluable, encompassing trauma therapy and various trainings including Play Therapy, Child Protection Training and courses with Babette Rothschild, an internationally renowned Trauma Therapist.

Some of you may be familiar with her name because of her work in Midleton College where she provides a Drug Misuse Prevention and Personal Development Programme to Transition Year Students. She is also a regular contributor of articles and letters to various newspapers and has done several radio interviews on WLR FM and NewsTalk among others.

In conversation with the the Observer Sally says “I know from the calls I get and from speaking with GP’s that there is a shortage of Psychologists and Accredited Psychotherapists available to meet the mental health needs of the East Cork and West Waterford population – particularly for young people. I’ve always loved working with this age group as well as with adults, and now that I have all this extra experience it’s an opportunity for me to expand. The demand is there, I just haven’t been able to meet it until now “.
Sally is working from Ladysbridge and Youghal and due to space requirements will be doing her family work in Youghal. She can be contacted on 0872338804 for appointments.
