Support Group Services Lead

Aisling Prendergast

I consider the therapy space as a unique experience for everyone. I endeavor to support people through their difficulties with an accepting and compassionate stance whilst helping others to gain solution focused tools.

 I am proud to lead the Support Group Services, Raymee Grief Center and I feel passionate about providing a space for individuals and families to understand their journey with grief, loss and trauma. I have trained extensively to work with individuals and organizations who have experienced traumatic events that have severely impacted their lives and productivity. I am experienced in facilitating critical incident stress debriefings and provide a variety of trainings using evidence-based treatment modalities. 
 
I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings in the UK, having qualified from London South Bank University. I work with  
 
young people and adults from 13 years upwards. I primarily work with the individual; however, I am committed to working as part of a Multi-Disciplinary Team during the treatment plan with all clients, ensuring that the whole family system can feel supported throughout the treatment process. I am passionate about working with individuals and families who are struggling with an Eating Disorder. I also have experience working with individuals who may struggle with traits or symptoms of Unstable Personality Disorder taking a Mentalisation and Dialectical Behavior Therapy stance. I have a particular interest in supporting individuals who are struggling to manage difficult or overwhelming emotions or events in their lives. My aim is to work towards improving their quality of life collaboratively and to develop a more compassionate relationship with themselves using solution focused strategies.
