About Me

I enjoy helping people to improve their health, both Mental and Physical, and discover their potential. Sometimes life presents obstacles or situations which can appear overwhelming and can result in anxiety and depression. Relationship problems, work difficulties, poor health and stress can negatively impact mental health and wellbeing. Often there may be no specific reason for feeling low or unhappy. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Psychotherapy  can help you to manage the cycles of negative thinking, behaviour and emotions. I provide a space where you can find a way through difficulties and move forward with a clear understanding. If you are experiencing health problems and would like to improve your health, I can support you with nutrition advice and information.

Deirdre O’Callaghan is a Psychotherapist BSc (Hons) and Nutrition Therapist with a Professional Certificate in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Deirdre is also a Clinical Aromatherapist and a registered member of The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists in the UK.

How can Nutritional Therapy Help ?

Often, we are so busy or stressed, we don’t have time to think about our health and wellbeing. It is only when a health issue arises that we have to take time out to assess our lifestyle. The body is good at sending signals when it is imbalanced and this can often be addressed before health is affected. Nutrition can have a powerful influence on our health. Food provides us with energy and also the building blocks for growth and repair. Good quality food promotes healthy function of the body systems, hormones, immune system and brain function.

We aim to help you to improve your health and wellbeing. We will support you in making changes which will help to improve your energy levels, optimise nutrition, promote better sleep and feel great !. Health is about the complete person; physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. Each aspect affects or influences the others. At Intú Health We aim to support your wellbeing by working with you to create a personalised nutrition plan to suit your lifestyle using a functional medicine approach. We work alongside your medical practitioner and refer you to them if we feel it is necessary or if your symptoms require medical investigation and treatment.
