You can now watch all six episodes of Yvonne Tiernan’s excellent online series ‘The Couch’ on the RTE Player. I had the pleasure of cutting the series during the summer and its a lovely project that I’m very proud of. The series was directed by Anna Rodgers (national treasure Anna Rodgers) and produced by David Power.
The six episodes deal with ‘Beauty’, ‘Love’, ‘Motherhood’, ‘Mums & Dads’, ‘Work/Life‘ and ‘Wisdom’.

The Couch is a female driven weekly conversation series that captures women’s unique ability to engage in an open exchange of stories, intimacies, life lessons and wisdom. Surprisingly frank and honest, each episode deals with the universal themes of life with well-known Irish and international women.
The series is supported by a wonderful lifestyle website
With over 20 years experience in the entertainment industry, Yvonne (43) has assembled an impressive guest-list for her very first solo television project. Guests in this opening six-part series include Perfumier Jo Malone, Comedy Writer & Actress Sharon Horgan, Singer Songwriter Eddi Reader, TV Producer & Presenter Maia Dunphy, Guardian of Castle Leslie Sammy Leslie, Broadcaster Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh and Model & Agent Celia Holman-Lee.
A long time fan of interview shows, Yvonne identified a gap in the Irish television landscape for an interview series with a difference, one that provides a forum for women to talk about the challenges they face on a daily basis:
“I’m a Mum, a Wife, a Sister, a Daughter and a Friend too and I know I don’t have all of the answers. So, I am interested in finding out how other women are dealing with the same challenges. I want ‘The Couch’ to represent the conversations us women are having everyday so as you can imagine there are lots of tears and laughter on set. As a big fan of old school interview shows this whole experience is a kind of dream come true for me and I hope it’s the beginning of a whole new chapter in my career.”
