„Psychotherapist, like the archaeologist in his excavation,
must uncover layer after layer of the patient’s psyche,
before coming to the deepest, most valuable treasures.”

S. Freud

About me

Sylwia Kuchenna

 Qualified Psychotherapist 

My name is Sylwia Kuchenna, I am the founder and CEO of Horizon Mental Health Clinic. I am a qualified and accredited psychotherapist. I graduated from Letterkenny Institute of Technology in 2015 with BA (Hons) in Law. I also graduated from PCI College and the University of Middlesex with a Diploma and Bachelor’s (Hons) Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. In 2022 I obtained a Master’s Degree in Child and Adolescents
Psychotherapy from Middlesex University. I am a member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).

Every client is special to me and equally important. Psychotherapy is an interesting process, where an individual is able to see their old patterns of behaviour, understand their emotions, exam their own thinking. Sometimes the therapeutic process is a journey into the past, sometimes into the future, and sometimes into their own body. I provide a safe and supportive environment for each client, where an individual can feel welcomed, understood, non-judged, and listened to. As a member of the IACP, the therapy is
conducted according to the IACP code of ethics.

I am aware that each client is different, has different needs and their story is unique, this is why I am using an integrated style of therapy, which is a mix of various types of therapy (psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive- behavioural (CBT), family systems and Gestalt). This approach allows me to match the therapy to an individual client’s needs.

Depression Treatment

Depression is a common mental disorder that involves a persistent feeling of sadness, depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration.

Family and Relationship Issues

Every relationship can have ups and downs or go through times of difficulty, but if there are more negatives than positives in relationship, then it might be time to think about whether or not it’s a healthy one.


In most cases, people who self-harm do it to help them cope with overwhelming emotional pain. This could be caused by social problems, trauma or psychological reasons.

Stress Management

Stress is a feeling of being under abnormal pressure. It can be caused by anything from an increased workload, to an argument with a family member, to financial worries.


Sexuality Issues

Sexuality has to do with the way you identify, how you experience sexual and romantic attraction, and your interest in and preferences around sexual and romantic relationships and behaviour. 



Trauma is the experience of severe psychological distress following any terrible or life-threatening event. Trauma survivors may develop emotional disturbances such as  anxiety, anger, sadness,  guilt, or PTSD. They may experience ongoing problems with sleep or physical pain, encounter turbulence in their personal and professional relationships, and feel a diminished sense of self-worth due to the overwhelming amount of stress.

Self-Esteem Issues

Self-esteem is the degree to which one feels confident, valuable, and worthy of respect. Where a person’s self-esteem falls on this spectrum, it can influence one’s overall well-being.


Social Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is a term used to describe uncomfortable feelings of nervousness, worry, and tension, which we all feel from time to time. It affects our thoughts, physical reactions, moods and behaviours. 

Bereavement and Loss

The loss of a loved one can be difficult and can trigger a dip in mental health. There is no right or wrong way to experience loss or to grieve. People may experience a wide range of emotions. This is part of coming to terms with a loss or bereavement.

Inner child work is one of the deepest works in psychotherapy. The inner child is a huge part of your psyche that is playing a huge role in your life today as an adult. It impacts your relationships, your perceptions of the world, your job, and even your thoughts about yourself. If you have experienced trauma in your childhood, didn’t feel loved, your emotional needs were not met or didn’t feel understood, visible or safe, your Inner Child is going to be wounded, and as a result, you are constantly living in the survival mode.

As traumatized children we always dreamed that someone would come and save us. We never dreamed that it would, in fact, be ourselves, as adults. ~ Alice Little
