Eoin is a leading Counsellor/Psychotherapist and lecturer/trainer, who has worked in the area of mental health for over 30 years, specialising in an individualised Case Formulation approach to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
He is particularly known for his work in the field of behavioural addictions, especially sexual addictions. He is currently focusing a lot of his attention on understanding how Autism-Informed Therapy could address the specific therapeutic needs of autistic adults (see autisminformedtherapy.com).
His work is influenced by a variety of evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centred Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, & Schema Therapy. Being autistically-minded, he is a lifelong learner, & constantly informs his work from perspectives he finds useful, especially aspects of Cognitive Science (Cognitive Psychology, Evolutionary Theory, Neuroscience, Philosophy of Mind, Anthropology). Evolution-Informed Therapy, in particular, is something he sees as very valuable.
Eoin is an accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and of Addiction Counsellors of Ireland, and has served as Vice-Chair of both organisations. He has also served as Chair of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity (www.atsac.co.uk).
He lectures at PCI College (www.pcicollege.ie), where he previously held the position of College President, and is co-founder of Dual Diagnosis Ireland (www.dualdiagnosis.ie) and Neurodiversity Ireland (www.neurodiversity.ie). In 2010 he was awarded the IACP Carl Berkeley Memorial Award for his contributions to the field of Counselling & Psychotherapy in Ireland.
