Clodagh’s work in Naas Family and Play Therapy Service brings together over ten years of supporting and enabling families and individuals through lots of life’s challenges. Despite always trying to do our best, we can sometimes get stuck in a problem where a solution is difficult to find. Clodagh’s experience is that therapy can be helpful when this happens.
Clodagh believes that everyone has strengths and resources. These are often found within our relationships with our family, our friends, work or school, the place we live, where we come from, our culture and so on. Sometimes it can be hard to uncover the things that we are doing well, especially when we are stuck in a problem. Attending family therapy with Clodagh means working and talking together to find the strengths and resources that lead to positive outcomes.
