Sports Counselling

• Having been involved with my club Kiltormer, and played hurling for Galway for many years, I am well aware of the pressures that players are under, playing sport at a high level. It can be very difficult to admit that you are under stress, or find the right person to turn too. I don’t believe it is shameful to have problems, but I do believe its a shame not to share them and resolve them.
• Sometimes the secrecy can prolong the issue for many years, and people continue to suffer, In order to avoid the issue players can turn to Alcohol, drugs or Gambling to help them deal or escape from reality. I hope people will make the brave choice to make contact with me.
• I gained invaluable experience dealing with issues experienced by sports people. This experience, coupled with my other counselling skills, gives me the opportunity to offer tailored counselling services to individuals having issues with their sporting careers.
• I work on the National Health & Wellbeing Committee set up recently by Croke Park. I am currently the Manager of the Roscommon Hurling team.
