Sean McCarthy

I am a fully accredited psychotherapist and training analyst, working in private practice in central Dublin. I lecture part-time in Trinity College Dublin on 2 postgraduate courses, and I am the current director of training for the Irish Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in how adversity during childhood comes to shape and mould our adult experience, and how we can subjectively situate ourselves meaningfully into the greater social fabric. Other areas of interest include addictions, trauma, loneliness and social isolation, anxiety and the ability to develop significant and supportive relationships with others.
