Welcome to Mary Horan’s website.

 You have just taken the first step to changing whatever is causing you distress in your life.  I really understand how you might find it difficult to take the next step and contact me.

My vision for my webpage is that it is user- friendly and provides you with the information you need to take that next step and contact me.

Do it....make the call or text, sent the e mail.....you have probably struggled enough already if you are looking for a counsellor.  Help is just one call, text or e-mail away.  You no longer have to manage alone.

 There is an easier way to live. You deserve an easier life and I’m here to help you achieve it.


I am a fully accredited member of IACP (Irish Association for counselling and psychotherapy) which upholds the highest standard of qualifications and code of ethics to ensure you, the client, with best practice standards. 


What you can expect I am a humanistic integrative psychotherapist.  I work with a variety of theories, therapeutic skills and techniques, including person-centred, Motivational Interviewing, somatic trauma therapies, cognitive behavioural, psychoanalytic/ unconscious process and mindfulness. You can expect a warm welcome, non judgement, empathy and understanding, kindness and compassion.  I will provide you with useful tools that can help you to reduce your anxiety and manage your distress when in difficult situations.


What you may expect from sessions:-

 Usually sessions are weekly, duration 50min.  We will agree appointments together and flexible times are available for those on shift work.

The purpose of counselling and psychotherapy is to assist you to help yourself with the unconditional support of a well-trained, empathic, compassionate and understanding therapist.  

When you have chosen a session with me – We become fellow travellers within the safe boundary of a professional therapeutic relationship for an agreed duration. You have invited me to accompany you as you work towards reaching an agreed goal that relieves your distress.   I provide short-term solution focused and cognitive behavioural therapy (usually between 6-12 week duration) and longer term humanistic integrative therapy.  The length of time you attend varies depending on the issue causing you distress and how it is impacting on your life. Together we will review our relationship and the therapy process and progress at regular intervals.  We will agree together how we may proceed to improve the therapy outcome.
