My name is Deirdre Walsh and I am a qualified Craniosacral Therapist based in Clonakilty, West Cork. I am certified by the Upledger Institute International, a professional body committed to the highest standard of training for craniosacral therapists. I am also a registered member of the Irish association of Craniosacral Therapists (IACST).

I have been a practicing therapist since 2006 having originally practiced massage therapy and reflexology. My interest in Craniosacral Therapy and the work of Dr. John E. Upledger led me to study and receive certification in Craniosacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute of Ireland, Iceland and UK. I am trained to advanced level in Craniosacral Therapy techniques, Somato Emotional Release and Paediatrics.

If you would like to know what craniosacral therapy can do for you (or anyone you are concerned about) then please get in touch with me. If you read through the information provided in the next few pages you will find much to interest you. Because craniosacral therapy works with the individuals ‘felt sense’ it can often be difficult to explain with words and is best understood by experiencing it for yourself.

All are welcome at my clinic from new-born babies to advanced old age and everyone in between.

I initially came to Deirdre with neck pain and headaches. Her touch was so gentle I couldn’t believe how effective it was. After a few sessions my pain was gone but even more amazing was how relaxed and calm and yet so energized I felt after each session. When I receive craniosacral therapy I feel so much more able to deal with life’s challenges, nothing is a problem!
