Welcome to my Practice

Rathmines clinic at 24 Upper Rathmines Road, Dublin 6

I'm a Clinical Psychologist specialising in psychotherapy and other forms of psychological treatment, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). As part of my practice, I combine elements from several approaches to psychotherapy and tailor the treatment according to the individual client’s needs.

I work as both a private practitioner and consultant, and have more than 10 years' experience working with adolescents, and extensive experience working with children and adults with various problems and difficulties.

My specialist areas include the treatment of depression, anxiety, anger management, addiction, relationship problems, panic attacks, eating problems, traumas, low self esteem, stress, bereavement and grief, communication difficulties and personal development.

As well as English, I am a fluent Croatian speaker.

  • "I went in therapy with her because I needed help to deal with my anxiety and to learn more about myself. After only 6 weeks of therapy with her, I don't have any anxiety symptoms, I'm feeling much better and I learnt a lot about myself! I'm very grateful! Petra is a very nice individual person, a good listener and adviser but more, she is a passionate therapist with real solutions." 9147152339
