Counselling & Psychotherapy
Hello, I’m Tom Evans and thanks for visiting this site. At SelfCare I provide a friendly, private and supportive space for my clients – so that you can talk about your concerns in safety. I’m an accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MIACP), and I’ve been working with clients in Midleton, Cork and online nationwide, since 2005.
I provide short-term solution-focused counselling, as well as long term deeper-healing psychotherapy. I am a certified EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) trauma therapist (certification with EMDR Europe).
I work with individuals over 18 years of age, presenting a broad range of mental health issues. I work especially with anxiety, trauma (recent, past, and childhood trauma), depression, panic attacks, self-esteem/belief/confidence, inner-child recovery, assertiveness, bereavement, suicidation, sexual abuse in childhood, and relationship issues.
Online, as well as regular 1 hour therapy sessions, I also provide 30 minute focused sessions designed to help with fear, panic and anxiety. This is delivered using WhatsApp Call and focuses on how you react emotionally, psychologically and physically at challenging times. The session will provide effective tools to equip you to respond more constructively and show you how to view anxiety as a helpful and optimistic driving force.
Schedule a session now by messaging below for details. Payment can be processed efficiently and securely using a payment link sent to your phone.
You can call to schedule an appointment and I will be happy to answer any queries. Also, you can send a message via the Contact / Bookings page. Note that sometimes, my replies to your email might end up in your spam folder. I generally respond within 24hrs.
