In the therapeutic space Ranite strives to provide a space of warmth, acceptance and honesty where people can feel safe to explore their feelings.  Ranite’s approach to counselling and psychotherapy is humanistic integrative, which looks at the source of issues a person is dealing with as a whole, including past and present struggles. Ranite incorporates elements from various disciplines such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or the Psychodynamic approach - tailored to the person’s own needs.

In addition to private practice Ranite also works in the Healthy Living Centre providing counselling and psychotherapy services to the community. In the past she worked with the DIT counselling service and has particular experience with the student population. Ranite has particular interest in supporting new mothers and delivers talks to HSE groups on issues such as post-natal depression.  

Special areas of focus include: anxiety and panic attacks, depression, grief and loss, post-natal depression, parenting difficulties, self-esteem, cultural issues, sexuality and personal development.

Her professional career began in the areas of training and education and she draws on that experience in her ability to be attentive to people’s needs.

In my work I enjoy being able to connect with people on a very real and honest level. We may come from different backgrounds or have different stories, but at as people we have the need to connect. I find that the therapy room provides a safe space to reflect outside of our busy every-day lives. I believe that people have sources within themselves to change when provided with the right conditions. By creating a good therapeutic relationship which is non-judgmental, honest and warm I aim to provide those conditions of growth”.
