About Me

Hello, my name is Shane Murphy, and I am a psychotherapist from Cork, Ireland. I specialize in providing online and face-to-face therapy to clients dealing with current challenges, particularly anxiety-related issues.

My approach focuses on the present moment, allowing clients to confront and address their problems directly. I prioritize the "here and now" in my therapy sessions, as I believe it is essential to empower clients to tackle their issues head-on.

My tailored approach to anxiety acknowledges how pervasive it can be in our fast-paced world, whether it is generalized anxiety, social anxiety, or specific phobias. I offer online and face-to-face therapy sessions to ensure that my services are accessible to clients regardless of their location or comfort level with in-person interactions.

My holistic approach goes beyond symptom relief, emphasizing the interconnected aspects of emotional, mental, and physical health to foster positive changes in all areas of life. In my therapeutic space, clients are at the centre, and I prioritize collaboration to ensure that individuals actively participate in their healing process.

I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment that fosters trust and growth. Join me on a transformative journey towards lasting change, where the present moment is the catalyst for well-being. Whether you are struggling with anxiety or other life challenges, my expertise and compassionate guidance provide a beacon of hope on the path to better health.

    Shane has helped me to change my life absolutely for the better. He has a very intuitive sense of what areas to work on and when. I could not recommend Shane highly enough as my quality of life is so great these days. Psychotherapy is the way to go as it gets to the core of your issues and builds you back up to the individual you want to be, living the life you only dreamt of beforehand. Thanks so much Shane ????
