Originally from Dublin but living in Annagassan, Co. Louth since 2004, Jean's clinical experience as a therapist has been comprehensive and varied.

Soon after graduating she pioneered the introduction of suicide bereavement support groups across Ireland and lectured extensively on the subject both here and abroad.

Later she developed her skills as a trauma specialist, relationship therapist and addiction counsellor. In recognition of this experience she was appointed external supervisor to several organisations including the Rape Crisis Centre, AdVIC, SAH Support After Homicide, and Accord. She was also on the Critical Incident Response team of a major airline, has spent ten years working with cancer patients and their relatives and was on the training team of several counsellor training schools.

In 2002 she facilitated Ireland's first therapy support group for people bereaved by homicide and since then helped train and supervise a national network of counsellors.
