We are a normal GP practice, looking after public and private patients.

We are 2 doctors, myself and Dr Sinead Beirne, and a nurse (my Mrs Caitriona O’Sullivan, who is practice nurse, midwife, breastfeeding support etc). We share 3 reception staff with the other GP practice.

We provide the full range of GP services, from cradle to grave, including maternity care, cervical screening, childhood and travel vaccination, contraception, health screening, ECG, lung function testing, chronic illness care, blood tests, repeat prescriptions and so on, but we also have some specialized services that are not commonly found in most practices:

  • Minor surgery procedures, from ingrown toenails and cysts to moles and skin cancers, wart freezing etc. We take referrals from all over Dublin and carry out approx. 700 procedures annually
  • We provide ultrasound scanning, including general abdominal scanning, assessment of prostate, aorta, gallstones, uterus, and pregnancy scanning.
  • As a result, we have an extensive maternity practice, participate in shared antenatal care with the hospital, offer midwife care and provide comprehensive breastfeeding support for new parents.
  • We combine ultrasound and surgical skills to find and remove contraceptive implants that get lost in people’s arms
  • We have substantial expertise in diabetes care.

What are the benefits of hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy can help you to know yourself at a deeper level, to formulate a vision for your life and to learn to your direct your mind to align to your intentions.

What happens in a hypnotherapy consultation?

At the commencement of therapy, the client tells me the issue they wish to resolve and any symptoms they may be experiencing. I then identify what strategies may best suit and recommend a course of treatment.

The beginning of each session involves establishing a pathway to relaxation and activating the inner mind – body connection.

During the consultations, a wide range of psychodynamic techniques are used to achieve the desired outcomes. The effect on the patient is often one of increased energy and a sense of self renewal as longstanding inner conflict is dissolved.

How long are the sessions?

The sessions are 50 minutes approximately.

What is hypnosis?

In contrast to the waking state of consciousness where the mind is focused on a multitude of external stimuli in the immediate environment, the state of hypnosis is an engagement with internal sensory experience which leads to deep relaxation and a heightened awareness of the subconscious mind.

Why is hypnosis used?

The application of hypnosis stimulates active concentration of mental and sensory processes to bring about a greater awareness of what you are feeling and thinking. You can identify any unhelpful subconscious programming and reframe your thinking to enable you to create a more fulfilling existence.

How does a person go into hypnosis?

The experience of going into hypnosis is one that most people experience day to day without even realising it. An example would be when driving, watching a film, or engaged in a creative activity.

To enter the state of hypnosis in a therapeutic setting, a person must simply be willing to work with the therapist to allow themselves to relax and turn their attention within. In the initial session I ask you questions about yourself which helps me to select an approach that best suits you.

What is the subconscious?

The subconscious is that part of consciousness which stores previously observed, learned information from our life experiences. The understandings in the subconscious generate hundreds of minute decisions, responses and behaviours in day to day life.

What’s the purpose of getting into the subconscious?

A proportion of the subconscious’ can contain destructive ideas that contribute to unhealthy, destructive habitual actions. It is the goal of hypnotherapy to interrupt the repeated cycle of this negative programming by challenging the beliefs embedded within.

Using the power of imagination and awareness, the patient can be guided into constructing new ideas and beliefs that will contribute to wellbeing, comfort and happiness.

Is hypnosis brainwashing?

The term brainwashing refers to using hypnotic techniques to harmfully manipulate the mental state of a person either through surreptitious means or by force. This malignant use of hypnosis has been used by cults to indoctrinate members and in aggressive interrogative


Hypnosis in its naturally occurring state is a relaxed yet focused state of being where the receptive and thinking mind is encouraged to find positive solutions to conflicts within. The patient is an active participant in the reconditioning of their mental, emotional and physical states with the hypnotherapist performing a supporting role to assist them in the process. Contrary to misconceptions, connection to conscious awareness is maintained throughout the session.
