Stella Kuit

Training & Accreditation

My name is Stella Kuit and I am an accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).

I work with adults, both in person and online, practising in accordance with the IACP professional code of ethics. I hold a BA Degree and Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also hold a H.Dip in Psychology from Trinity College Dublin, together with an MA in Reading in Practice (Bibliotherapy) and a BA in English Language and Literature from The University of Liverpool. I hold a PG.Dip in Law and PG.Dip in Legal Practice from the University of Central Lancashire.

I have training in applied suicide intervention skills (ASIST) and transgender awareness (TENI/HSE), as well as holding a practitioner certificate in working with autistic adults (AUsome training) and a professional certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy skills (PCI College). I am currently completing an MSc in Psychology and Wellbeing with Dublin City University.


I approach my work from a collaborative person-centred stance, providing a non-judgemental space within which to explore and reflect on life experiences, goals and challenges.  With a belief that every individual has the capacity to change and to live an authentic version of themselves, I apply an integrative approach which combines Humanistic, Existential and CBT perspectives.

Experience & Areas of Interest

We dont get to choose what happens to us, but we do get to choose how we respond to our experience.” Edith Eger

 Originally from the UK, I initially trained and qualified as a solicitor. I practised immigration, asylum, nationality and human rights law. This work involved advising and representing clients from a diverse range of backgrounds and countries, all of whom found themselves in exceptionally challenging circumstances yet with one common goal: to maintain a sense of stability and hope for themselves and their families. It was this experience, together with a life long interest in the human condition, that led me to retrain within the fields of psychology and psychotherapy.

I have experience of working with the following presenting issues:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • autistic masking
  • burnout
  • intergenerational trauma
  • health and death anxiety
  • panic attacks/disorders
  • bereavement, loss and grief
  • fertility difficulties
  • postnatal depression
  • vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue
  • work related stress
  • chronic pain
  • phobias

I have a particular interest in neurodiversity and working with late diagnosed/late discovery Autistic and ADHD adults. I am a strong advocate for positive psychology and the importance of having a well-lived, meaningful and fulfilling life. I also consider there to be great value in the role of literature in learning to better understand our life experiences and relationships.
