Cathriona Edwards


Cathriona Edwards, MA (CBT), BA (hons) Psych, HG Dip P, MHGI, is a fully qualified Human Givens Psychotherapist, a registered member of the Human Givens Institute, a member of the Human Givens Institute Board, has a Masters degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from ICHAS, Limerick and an Honours Degree in Psychology from Trinity College Dublin. She also holds a diploma in Executive Coaching and is practicing Human Givens Psychotherapy at the Dublin Human Givens Centre.

Cathriona has had a life-long interest in psychology, studying it for her honours degree in Trinity College Dublin, and pursuing aspects of it subsequently through Communications  – in work experience and qualifications in public relations and marketing – and in Executive Coaching and most recently in her Masters in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

She spent over 17 years in the workplace in both the private sector (Irish Life Assurance plc) and the public sector (RTÉ; RTÉ Television). She worked in a senior management position in RTÉ, running the Television Press Office for over eight years, managing teams, managing national and international media relations, and working as a trusted advisor to executive management for the public service broadcaster.

Her interest in Human Givens is deep and broad. She is energized by the benefits she sees clients experiencing quickly and naturally in their daily lives as they apply the learnings and healing from therapy; and from the education courses she co-runs at the centre with her colleagues. She is continually gratified by the breadth of the approach that can help optimise performance in contexts from sports to exams to the workplace; help individuals harness their innate strengths to deal better with the challenges of being human in the world; break cycles of depression and anxiety; help heal and enable people recover from trauma – on a small and large scale.

Cathriona is also a board member of Dress for Success, Dublin – a non-profit organisation founded to further the economic independence of women by facilitating their entrance or return to the workplace by supplying work attire, interview coaching and career mentoring. She is also a Global Faculty member for SNP Communications, where she conducts training and coaching in communications, management and personal development.
