Maureen McEvoy, MA, RCC has been in private practice
for more than 20 years. She works with individuals, couples and
groups. She counsels clients who have experienced trauma, either
recent or historical. She is certified in trauma modalities such
as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Developmental
Needs Meeting Strategy (DMNS). Other approaches include art therapies,
hypnosis and mindfulness.
She also works with couples using Imago Relationship therapy.
She is an Advanced Imago clinician (1996) and a Certified Workshop
presenter of the Getting the Love You Want weekend workshop
based on the work of Harville Hendrix.
Maureen believes that each of us is able to be the author of our
own lives, and that we have an inborn urge to grow towards our full
potential. She sees her role in counselling to provide an environment
of safety, witnessing, reflection, and support that facilitates
such growth. She wishes to guide people to a deeper understanding
of themselves and their situation, to befriend their challenges
and embrace their strengths. She believes that self-awareness and
self-acceptance are critical ingredients in order to live a happier
and more fulfilling life. Clients experience her as respectful,
curious, pragmatic and compassionate.
She also believes that psychological issues can never be reduced
to the individual, but are always related to culture, social settings
and society. Therefore, problems need to be addressed in context.
