WELCOME TO SUAIMHNEAS
CBT Psychotherapy & Mindfulness Trainer
Shirine Beausang is a Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Psychotherapist and Mindfulness Teacher based in Cork. Suaimhneas was established to support people with a variety of life challenges through CBT therapy and Mindfulness. These approaches aim to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and to improve wellbeing, personal growth, and positive mental health. My aim is to help you find ways to overcome these difficulties and to live a life that matters to you with health, wellbeing and vibrancy.
Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-Behaviour Psychotherapy (CBT) is an evidence-based, present-focused talking therapy. CBT focuses on how we think about ourselves and the world around us, and how this can affect our emotions and how we act.
CBT therapy is proven to be extremely effective for a range of mental health difficulties such as Excessive Worry/Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Low Self-Esteem and Self-Criticism, amongst others.
I specialise in the integration of CBT therapy and Mindfulness which emphasises developing therapeutic skills in mindfulness, self-compassion and acceptance. These approaches include Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Compassion- Focused Therapy.
What to do now?
Our Initial Phone Call
During our initial phone call we will discuss what you would like to gain from CBT therapy. You can ask any questions you might have and Shirine will also give you an idea of what to expect from the sessions. During our phone call we will also arrange your first appointment.
During your first appointment we will do an assessment to get an understanding of the challenges you are currently facing in your life and what you need from the sessions to be of most benefit to you. From there, we can decide the most suitable treatment and interventions to guide future sessions. Most importantly, it is your space to take the time you need to talk about what is bothering you in a safe and supportive environment. It is also a time for us to get to know each other.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an internationally respected program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn over forty years ago. It has been clinically proven to benefit people with a diversity of life challenges such as Stress, Depression, Anxiety
Practicing mindfulness is about finding a new way of relating to these challenges, one that helps us to slow down and savour what we find in the present moment, and to respond rather than react to what we are facing in life.
Mindfulness is a way of living for me and I am very grateful to be able to experience present moment awareness as a way of being in the world, and to guide me through life’s inevitable ups and downs. It is a privilege to be able to bring this to others to support them in their own healing and wellbeing.
