Core Therapy’s mission is to assist, support and journey with you, in a professional, confidential and safe environment. To tailor therapy for your specific needs in an open down to earth dialogue.

Core Therapy was established by Cora O Brien. Cora is a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist who is a fully accredited member of Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP)

I am based in the much loved town of Listowel Co. Kerry.

I have spent the last 9 years setting up Pieta House in Kerry. As well as setting up the centre I also managed all aspects of running this service in Kerry for 3 years. Since stepping out of this position I can devote more of my time to Core Therapy, continued training and education.

I have experience in helping people with a wide variety of issues; together we explore and investigate these issues. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental and relaxed environment. I am aware that it can be quite daunting coming for counselling for the first time but I can assure you that I will endeavour to make it as easy and comfortable as possible for you.

I offer one to one and couple counselling. I offer long and short term counselling.

I am also offering on line therapy sessions on Skype and Zoom now at Therapyhub - Our Therapists

My approach to counselling is primarily Humanistic and is person centered which means that I provide an atmosphere of support, empathy, and trust that allows you to share your feelings without fear of judgment.
