Psychotherapist and Counsellor

Karl Barry MIACP, MNAPCP, MSc Psychotherapy, B.A. Psychology

Welcome to All of You Counselling and Psychotherapy. My name is Karl Barry, a professionally qualified and fully accredited psychotherapist and counsellor who works with individuals, couples and elite athletes. I hold a first-class honours Master's Degree in Psychotherapy from Dublin City University and an Honours Degree in Psychology from Dublin Business School (DBS). 

Counselling and Psychotherapy with Karl

I find the work I do with my clients very rewarding and I feel privileged to witness the transformations people make as they go through the process of therapy. Helping them to discover both internal and external resources to cope with the issues they may be facing, developing self-acceptance and confidence to truly believe and trust in themselves and guiding them to find a path which leads to the type of life they would like to live. 

People come to therapy for many different reasons. They may find that they are lacking in motivation, feeling down or empty, or find it difficult to stay connected to people around them. Some may feel anxious and have noticed that their anxiety is preventing them from living a full and happy life. Others may be struggling within their close relationships, perhaps finding themselves repeating the same negative patterns which lead to the same negative outcomes over and over again or having difficulties with intimacy or connection. Some may have had a traumatic experience or difficult life event that they may be struggling to overcome. I work with clients with issues such as these examples and help clients with many other issues which can be helped through the process of psychotherapy.

Building a strong, trusting relationship is key in therapy. First and foremost, I offer my clients a safe, confidential space where they can discuss the issues they may be facing without any fear of judgment. Each client's issues are unique to them and as such, I adapt how I work to meet their needs. I only use the most up-to-date, evidence-based psychotherapies such as Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Person-Centered, Systemic, Psychosexual, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Transactional Analysis to help clients through their difficulties. This gives them the confidence to know that they are in safe hands and that the work that we do will always have their best interest at heart.
