Hi, my name is Noel Sweeney and I am the principal and main therapist at Mooloolaba Counselling and Performance. I have recently emigrated from Ireland to the Sunshine Coast with family. Until I left Ireland I worked in a very successful practice called Malahide Counselling and Psychotherapy. While there I gained a great wealth of knowledge while working with a broad range of people and issues having particular expertise in working with Depression, Anxiety and Stress Management while also helping people grow through personal development.
I hold a B.A. (Hons) in Business Management, B.Sc. (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy and Prof. Cert in C.B.T. (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Obtaining this education has allowed me to work with a broad range of people from different cultures and ages in addition to a wide range of issues. As well as my expertise in Depression, Anxiety and Stress Management as mentioned above I have also used my education and knowledge to work with those who wish to further their personal ability and increase their performance in work, sport or other professional areas in life.
My ultimate aim is to help my clients grow to where they want to be. It is vitally important to use compassion and understanding with my clients. Use humour where possible so they enjoy doing this work and also make things tangible using real-life examples and scenarios so the work we do is relatable and personal in their lives as I believe it's very important that the work makes sense to and for them.
I have also recently started a new podcast called One DMC Podcast where I am a co-host along with Chris and our producer Dan. We're aiming to destigmatise the area of mental health through deep and meaningful conversations. We have guests from every walk of life sharing their experiences and knowledge so we can better help our listeners.

I love what I do and feel incredibly privileged to be in this position to help others. So please, get in touch and let me help you get to where you want to be.
