Sheila Wilton completed doctoral training as a clinical psychologist at Trinity College, Dublin, in 2010. Her first clinical post was with Enable Ireland, Co. Dublin, providing psychological services to children and young adults with primarily physical needs.

On moving to Cork in 2013, Sheila took a post within the HSE, working as a Clinical Psychologist in general Adult Mental Health. Her HSE work covered assessment, formulation and therapeutic intervention across all areas of adult mental health. She provided individual therapy sessions, facilitated metal health community groups, conducted research and service development and worked in consultation with other mental health professionals.

Following her own traumatic event in 2015, Sheila developed a special interest in Psycho-oncology (psychological support for individuals diagnosed with cancer), End of life support, Trauma, Loss and Grief.

Sheila describes her work as gently supporting others to use their experiences of suffering, and any specific issues of dis-ease, as an invitation for healing and growth in whatever form that may take. She encourages a gentle turning towards experience, as it arises in the present moment. It is in this turning towards, and becoming aware, that we meet our experience fully and release what has been held on to.

Sheila concludes that whilst her clinical training provided her with a solid ground for the way that she works with others, her own life journey and personal work has been the rich fertilizer for this ground, and one that cannot be obtained from any textbook!

Below is a list of therapies Sheila has trained in, experienced herself and used with others. Her core skills are in cultivating a safe, trusting and present therapeutic relationship. Sheila has learned that when people feel safe, what is needed next will naturally arise. Therapeutic interventions are therefore offered in response to what arises, and she often finds they weave into each other as part of the natural flow.

  • Comprehensive Resource Model for Trauma (CRM)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
  • Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT)
  • Mindful Compassion
  • Compassion Focused Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Behavioural Activation Therapy
  • Therapeutic Yoga

Sheila practiced a number of different yoga styles until she came to experience Kundalini yoga, when she moved to Cork in 2013. She knew from the moment she read about this ancient form of yoga that she was going to teach it one day! In 2015, Sheila completed her training as a yoga teacher under the guidance of Italian based master Kundalini Yoga teachers, Sada Sat Singh and Sada Sat Kaur. Kundalini yoga is often known as the yoga of awareness, using physical exercises, breathing techniques (Pranayama), meditation and mantra to raise our vibration and bring us into awareness of awareness itself! Sheila has an interest in using yoga to assist in the release of traumatic material held within the body.
