Coinneach Shanks: Psychotherapy in Dublin

Home | Services | Location | Biography | Site Map
I'm retired now, although I do take occasional emergency cases. I've left infomation here just in case it's of any use and then I plan to migrate to another site. Many thanks to everyone who visited and navigated through the links. I still prefer the old ways. This site may be developed as a personal site but it will always have a psychoanalytical component. Best wishes to all.


I work with a psychodynamic approach, using a person centred non-directive psychotherapy. I also encourage creativity and self expression and have considerable experience in dream work. A few times a week I blog at Psychotherapy in Dublin so if you are interested in images and symbols please pay me a visit. It's designed to be accessible, thought-provoking and an occasional resource for relaxation and mindfulness.

Affordable Therapy
In these times of economic crisis and recession, we are all experiencing uncertainty. It can make existing difficulties feel worse and even trigger the reappearance of old anxieties. Someone once said there was no problem like a money problem. Whether that's true or not, it makes things feel even more difficult for many of us. But no problem is unsurmountable. "With courage, teamwork and determination a person can overcome anything." 
The teamwork is the alliance between client and therapist that will help you to manage these feelings appropriately in an affordable way. Fees can be negotiated within a certain range. If you live in or near Dublin and you feel that counselling or psychotherapy is for you, it's always worth giving me a call.
