Veronica is Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, practising in the Centre and also from her own clinic in Dublin Central.
Veronica began her career in the HSE, where she worked for over 8 years. She then transitioned into a career in the pharmaceutical industry where she became a European Director of Bayer and also of Siemens Medical. Veronica went on to study and attain a Masters in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from UCD and St Vincent’s Hospital. She opened her clinical practice a few years ago and founded The Not Said Clinic, which is based in Dublin Central.
She wishes to assist those who suffer in silence, whether it be in their working environments or in their personal lives, as she has experienced the toll an over busy life can have on the mental health of a person, regardless of age. Veronica aims to establish a safe secure environment where people could find time for themselves and perhaps even rediscover a little of themselves.
Veronica passionately believes “When things become hectic or when we experience loss or some other life challenge, we are just expected to cope and carry on as if nothing happened. But something has happened and a person needs time to process and accept these changes life has uncovered. It may be ill health, loss, bereavement, ending of a relationship, sexual issues, depression, anxiety or many other issues which may present and challenge our mental well being but having the strength to ‘take on’ these issues could be the difference between a life worth living and a life half lived. It is at these dark points in our life, when all other words have been spoken and we have had exhaustive conversations with friends or family with little progress, that working with a professional can make a difference. I therefore wanted to establish a place where the unspoken word could be finally spoken and perhaps new choices may emerge from the darkness. It is here the Not Said Clinic has had its genesis – for all the things unsaid that are waiting to be heard.”
