My name is Kathryn O Reilly. I qualified as a psychotherapist from the Tivoli Institute in Dun Laoghaire in 1996 and I have been an accredited member of the I.A.C.P both as a psychotherapist and Supervisor for the past twelve years.

My speciality is in the area of anxiety and sexual addiction and my area of interest
is extensential isolation. In my fourteen years in practice I have worked with many
people suffering from anxiety, panic and post traumatic stress disorder. I am very
interested in existential isolation and death anxiety.
I am a qualified Supervisor accredited with the I.A.C.P. I work with individuals
and groups with students, qualified therapists and those working towards accreditation.

and harness their power to effect change and personal growth.
Speciality: Anxiety and panic disorder
Anyone can experience anxiety and when it gets out of control it can put a severe
strain on your life. I have been working with patients suffering from panic and
anxiety for fourteen years and sometimes it can be resolved quite quickly and for

to the spot the one thing they have in common is the dread that they are going to
die not sometime in the future but right here, right now. It doesn’t get much scarier
