Tomás West , prior to qualifying as a psychotherapist Tomás had a varied career as a telecommunications manager. He served as an electronics engineer and lecturer in the Irish Defence Forces both at home and on UN service. Upon leaving the Army he worked with US multinationals, Irish and UK firms as a service manager in leadership roles. He also lectured at night in mathematics and microelectronics for the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT). Since qualifying as a psychotherapist he has provided counselling and long term psychotherapy for clients in North Dublin, many of whom are overcoming addiction.

Tomás brings his experience of working in industry in culturally diverse and often stressful environments to his practise as a therapist. He has developed an understanding that life throws many obstacles in our paths and that most people are reacting in the best way they can to difficult circumstances. Today many people struggle with stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues that have many origins. Tomás believes that the only expert on the client’s issues is the client themselves. Therefore non judgemental therapy that respects the person in every way is the most effective way to bring about positive personal change in all of life’s experience. Therapy is a challenging, exploratory but ultimately liberating process that can restore self belief, confidence and bring about a new perspective on life. Tomás works as an integrative therapist,                                                      using person centred, psychodynamic, existential and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) approaches in a holistic manner to his practise.
