Niamh Kelly


Niamh has gained a lot of experience in human relations after spending over a decade in Human Resource Management and then qualifying and practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist. She is pre-accredited with the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and offers a low cost counselling service at River Holistic. Her approach is person-centred (anempathic approach that empowers clients), with an interest and training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness based interventions. ACT helps you come to terms with what is outside of your personal control and maximise your potential to pursue a life that is rich, full and meaningful for you through a mix of mindfulness and behavioural change strategies. Therapy is carried out in a non-judgemental and supportive space.


She has experience of working with a wide range of issues from interpersonal difficulties to anxiety, stress, depression, grief, self-esteem, trauma, bullying, emotional abuse and conflict management etc.


Niamh is a certified trainer and as a long-term practitioner and student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s, with the dharma name ‘Awakened Openness of the Heart’, she is passionate about integrating mindfulness into her work. She offers a six-week one-to-one mindfulness skills course within a psychotherapeutic space that helps clients skilfully integrate mindfulness into their lives in a way that is suited to each person individually.


The low cost counselling rate of €25 to €35 is offered to those who are unemployed, low waged, students or retired.


She also teaches a key mindfulness skills course to small groups (up to 10) on the basic concepts and practises of mindfulness.
