Breanna is a Clinical Sexologist trained by the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology (CICS), UK with COSRT accreditation. CICS is a Pink Therapy certified training with a core value of respect for diversity in training, staff and the directing team.
During the CICS training process Breanna developed skills further as a therapist with the Beeleaf Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy, London, UK in four specific areas for Working Creatively with Trauma & Triggers (UKCP accredited), Working Compassionately with Anxiety & Depression (UKCP), Working Effectively with Addiction & Recovery (UKCP) and Clinical psychopathology (UKCP). Additional training includes CBT Basics (Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust), UK.
Before venturing into development as a Clinical Sexologist Breanna received a BSc Honours in Applied Psychology (PSI Accredited) from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT). During this time Breanna trained as a Mentor with LeCheile Mentoring project, Dublin.
Throughout the years of sexual health education, some of the experiences included attendance the Summer Research Institute from the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) at Widener University, Chester, Pennsylvania, USA in the Centre for Human Sexuality Studies; training in Sexuality and Intellectual Disability (FPA) and Fantasy vs Reality (FPA) London; Crisis Pregnancy Programme (CPP) Masterclasses (NUI Maynooth, Ireland), Train the Trainer (FETAC) Dublin.
As a COSRT member, Breanna receives regular supervision in adherence with COSRT Code of Ethics.
As a genuinely curious and energetic individual Breanna continues to take part in training on a very regular basis. At present I am continuing my specialist training in Compulsive Sexual Behaviours (CSB) with CICS.
