Clare Graham

Functional Family Therapist

Clare began working with Families First in March 2010 as a researcher with the School of Psychology, UCD. Clare’s role as a researcher was to evaluate the implementation of FFT in an Irish context. In November 2010 Clare was invited to train as a Functional Family Therapist and for two years continued to work for UCD as a researcher and deliver FFT (both on a part-time basis). Since September 2012 Clare has been a full-time member of the Families First team.

Clare has a research masters (MLitt) in Psychology from UCD and has presented at a number of national and international conferences on behalf of Archways. Clare is now training in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. Prior to joining Archways, Clare worked as an Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) tutor with children with ASD and their families, while also volunteering as a counsellor for young people.
