About Frankie

Frankie Brown headshot

I am a qualified, accredited therapist working in North Dublin. Originally from England, I have lived in Dublin since 2006, raising my family here. I started my training in South Dublin in 2012, and my passion has taken me to research and develop a deep interest and understanding of Attachments. I believe having this understanding enhances my work with depression, anxiety, bereavement and grief, trauma and parent-adolescent work, in addition to the therapist-client relationship.

As part of my work, I believe it is important to continue to learn from my clients, and research, in order to shape and develop the counselling profession. For this reason, I involve myself in research and previously co-facilitated a group for psychotherapists to share ideas. I have also lecturered at IICP College; supporting and encouraging students in their own counselling careers across a range of subjects including ‘Microskills of Counselling’, ‘Personal Development’, ‘Research Methods’, 'Pluralism' and 'Ethics and Values', as well as lecture in 'Professional Skills' and an 'Attachment Workshop'.

It is also important for me to use my skills in other areas of my life. As such, I am the co-author of Pluralistic Therapy: Responses to Frequently Asked Questions, and I also work part-time in a local secondary school delivering counselling and wellbeing workshops to students, parents and teachers. I was previously a director with Empowerment Plus, a charity working within the community to "empower young people, families and communities at risk live just and fulfilling lives". Additionally, I have helped to raise awareness of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis for Arthritis Ireland, facilitated mental health workshops for them, and also featured in a book of which the proceeds were donated to the Marie Keating Foundation.
