“As a primary school teacher I would highly recommend the work that Eithne does.”
“I was teaching junior infants several years ago and a child in my class was struggling with managing his emotions and was not presenting as a happy child on a day to day basis. His mother decided to bring him to work with Eithne and I saw a marked improvement in his little boy’s behaviour, mood and way of being. I also received feedback from the child’s father as to just how beneficial the play therapy sessions had been for his son and to his parents.”

"Eithne made me understand my own child by opening communication skills, understanding what my child was really trying to tell me."
"I highly recommend Eithne. She made me understand my own child by opening communication skills, understanding what my child was really trying to tell me. And she does that in an incredible way for parents and children. Thank you so much for your care."
"Eithne is a gifted therapist and I highly recommend working with her, Eithne has all the tools to support you and your child."
"Now more than ever the emotional needs of our children are so vital. Eithne has all the tools to support you and your child to stay well mentally, emotionally and physically. Thank you for the great work you are doing."
"While underlying a certificate in therapeutic play skills I was fortunate enough to have Eithne as my clinical supervisor."
"As my supervisor Eithne was calm, supportive and understanding. She had an innate ability in holding the space during sessions and in containing the process. Eithne provided honest and clear feedback on aspects of my practice and performance which I believe improved my ability to identify and enhance my own work as a practitioner and to acquire the attitudes, skills and knowledge required in my role. Eithne’s passion and enthusiasm for her work and the genuine care and welfare for children always shone through during our meetings. I have no hesitation in recommending Eithne as a play therapist supervisor."
"I am always struck by Eithne's passion to connect and help parents see the world through their children’s eyes whilst shaping a parenting approach that will always suit their needs."
"I have supervised Eithne for many years now in her clinical practice as a non-directive play therapist and while her ability to form a therapeutic relationship is exceptional, she has a particular skill set in connecting with parents and carers. Eithne uses her professional and life experience to bring a unique approach to her work. Eithne remains by your side guiding, educating and supporting. I am always struck by Eithne’s passion to connect and help parents see the world through their children’s eyes whilst shaping a parenting approach that will always suit their needs."
"Wise and super effective."
"Down to earth, natural, wise and super effective child, preteen, teen and parent “go to” professional."
"With Eithne’s wealth of experience she develops an immediate strong trusting bond with parents allowing understanding and awareness seep through to parent and child."
"With Eithne’s extensive knowledge, advice and guidance you feel and your child will feel “you’ve got this”. Trust the knowledge you gain as it enables you to smooth the challenges you will face today and in the future."
"Highly recommend Eithne & allow children and families from all of Ireland avail of her wisdom and expertise."
"I would highly recommend Eithne as a Children’s Play Therapist – I was delighted to hear of her new online courses which will allow children and families from all of Ireland avail of her wisdom and expertise."
"Eithne's passion and enthusiasm for her work and the genuine care and welfare for children always shone through."
"Eithne supported our family through a very challenging time for our family. We found her to be very competent, honest and a great advocate for children."
"From the start Eithne was a thoroughly inspiring, kind and knowledgeable tutor."
"I attended an early childhood care and education course with Eithne. From the start Eithne was a thoroughly inspiring, kind and knowledgeable tutor who really brought an amazing level of education and passion for her work to our classes. Eithne taught me some extremely valuable skills I still use in work, at home, in life and all she taught me has aided me in furthering my education and career. I could not recommend Eithne enough."
"Before I met Eithne I was reluctant about going through this process. This was probably down to my feeling that I had left D down as his Dad and that this would be a judgement of my parenting skills."
"However, only 15 minutes into our primary meeting with Eithne these feelings dissipated. This was down to Eithne’s approach, communication skills and professionalism. Over the course of the program Eithne was never judgemental, in fact quite the opposite, and was very quick to highlight our strong points as parents yet was also not afraid to point out areas where she felt we were weaker, and in all instances she was right."
