Veronica began her career in the HSE, where she worked for over 8 years.  She then worked in the pharmaceutical industry where she became a European Director of Bayer and subsequently of Siemens Medical.   She returned to clinical practice a few years ago and founded The Not Said Clinic.  Veronica has a Masters in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from UCD and St Vincent’s Hospital.

 

She established the NSC (Not Said Clinic) in an effort to assist the several people who suffer in silence, both in their working environments or in their personal lives as she had experienced the toll an over busy life can have on the mental health of a person, regardless of age.   It was always her goal to establish a safe secure environment where people could find time for themselves and perhaps even re-find 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.”

The Not Said Clinic focuses not only on the conscious part of mental health but also on the unconscious part  - which is always speaking.

 

“Emotion always has its roots in the unconscious and manifests itself in the body” – Irene Claremont de Castillejo.

Linda

Linda has a Bsc (hons) degree from Queen’s University, Belfast, after which she completed a Higher diploma in clinical psychoanalysis and later embarked on a Masters in Psychoanalytical psychoanalysis.

 

Her areas of interest lie in mental health issues and communication challenges. Linda has a wealth of experience working with children and brain injury victims, in a therapeutic setting.

Linda’s’ approach is centered on the importance of speech combined with active listening, in a space that is safe, non judgmental and confidential. Through this the client will understand themselves better affording them the freedom to make clearer choices and change repeating patterns.
