About Brendan McLoughlin

I work with individuals and couples.
Counselling and psychotherapy have been found to be helpful with a range of problems includin:
- alienation
- alcohol and drug dependence
- anxiety, bereavement
- grief
- childhood issues
- depression
- family and relationship breakdown
- experiences of sexual and physical abuse
- trauma
- low self esteem and poor self image
- general feelings of inferiority
- issues of difference
- sexual identity and orientation
- being an outsider
- loss of meaning and direction
- stage of life issues
- patterns of failure and conflict
- problems with self acceptance
- early deprivation
- mental illness in the family or in oneself
- stress
- feelings of emptiness and powerlessness

In my work as a therapist I am interested in finding ways to meet the needs of the individual as they try to work through their problems and achieve a better understanding of themselves. I work from the perspective of mindfulness, respecting the reality and experience of each person.
