Flood Street
Galway
Contact: Alice McEleney
Telephone: 086-8956595
Email: alice.mceleney@gmail.com
Website: www.psychotherapycounsellingga...

I’m Alice McEleney, a qualified and experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and psychologist with a private practice in Galway city centre. My goal is to help you to heal from difficult past experiences, cope with your current circumstances, grow and develop as a unique individual, and experience greater fulfilment in your life. 

Life throws many challenges our way, and people seek out psychotherapy and counselling for many reasons. For example, you may be feeling a prolonged sense of sadness and helplessness, anxiety, worry or stress, struggling to cope with a life transition, or experiencing difficulties in your relationships. These are all common challenges, but sometimes they can be difficult to deal with without the opportunity to discuss them freely with another person. I am trained to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive space in which you can explore your experience in depth, gain new insights, and develop your ability to cope, grow and thrive. 

I will not judge you, give you advice, or try to “fix” your problems, but I will work with you to help you find the resources within yourself to cope with life’s challenges. I can help you to express what is happening for you, by listening attentively and trying to understand your experience from your point of view. I can encourage you to examine your thoughts and feelings in different ways, which may lead you to new insights and different perspectives. I can assist you in becoming clearer about who you are as a person and what is important to you in life. I can collaborate with you to discover habits or patterns in your life that are no longer working for you. I can support you as you consider your options, try out different ways of relating to yourself and others, and learn to respond to experiences in ways that support your well-being and growth. By exploring your experience in these ways in the context of an honest and trusting relationship, you can develop a deeper and more compassionate connection with yourself and more freedom to make choices about how you live your life.

Research has shown that the most important factor influencing the effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling is the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. I strive to build an honest, trusting and collaborative relationship with you, in which you can feel secure enough to address what is most challenging for you. I provide a safe and empathic space in which you can explore your experience and develop the inner resources you need to move towards greater freedom and well-being.

I am trained in many different ways of helping people, including both traditional therapeutic methods and new techniques supported by recent research. I work from an integrative perspective, which means that I draw on a range of theories and techniques in a flexible way, depending on what you may need at each moment. As a result, I can adapt how I work in order to meet your unique individual needs, rather than using a “one size fits all” method. I draw predominantly on the following approaches to psychotherapy and counselling: psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), person-centred therapy and gestalt therapy. 

My approach is a culmination of over twenty years of personal experience, study, research, training and practice in psychotherapy, counselling, psychology, and neuroscience. My formal training includes a Professional Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling from The Tivoli Institute and a PhD in Psychology from Trinity College Dublin. I have conduced postdoctoral research in Neuroscience in the USA and worked as a Lecturer in Psychology at Northumbria University in the UK and Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick. Alongside my psychotherapy and counselling practice, I am currently a part-time Associate Lecturer in Psychology with the Open University, where I teach courses on mental health. I also provide psychotherapy and counselling at NUI Galway Student Counselling Service.

I am a Pre-Accredited Member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) and a Chartered Psychologist of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI). I follow the IACP’s Code of Ethics and Practice for Counsellors/Psychotherapists and the PSI’s Code of Professional Ethics. I attend regular supervision with an experienced and accredited supervisor. I am constantly developing my skills through further training and continuous professional development workshops. My work is covered by professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

Art therapy is the use of art materials for self expression and reflection in the presence of a qualified art therapist. Art therapy is a unique process, combining creativity and psychotherapy for growth, awareness and healing. It is done in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. Why do people see an Art Therapist? Some people can find it difficult to talk directly about their feelings and experiences. Using art materials can be an alternative form of expression. The art process itself can be deeply relaxing, satisfying and positive. It can provide some physical and emotional relief as we express feelings using tactile art materials. Art therapy can potentially provide a space where people can experiment, make a mess, be playful and spontaneous. Do I need to be artistic? No artistic skill is necessary. It is not about making realistic drawings or painting a masterpiece. The artistic quality of the end product is unimportant. The therapist will not make judgments and all work is accepted in its own right. What will happen in a session? Sessions usually last for between 50 minutes to an hour, at the same time and place each week. A range of art materials will be available in each session and you can choose what to make or do, with freedom to express your experiences and thoughts in your own individual way. All images you make, and what you may say about them is treated as confidential Art Therapy can help with: addiction and recovery, anger, bullying, depression, low self esteem and confidence, grief and bereavement, stress and anxiety and much more! Group workshops are also available. Please contact us for further information. The cost for this specialist counselling service is only €50 Euro an appointment. *To cancel or postpone an appointment you must contact us 48 hours before your appointment is due to take place or you may be subject to a cancellation fee. (Caregivers must give written permission to us for young people under 16 and children to participate in art therapy). CRA Number: 20143237 CHY Number: 21366

Billy Brogan is a multi qualified therapist based in County Galway. He is qualified as a counsellor, psychotherapist, analytical hypnotherapist and a certified reality therapist. Billy is trained to assist people who are in distress or have reached a point in their lives where they have realised that they are not achieving their full potential.

According to the VHI's web site" The type of therapist you choose is less important than the emotional connection you make with that person. Studies have shown that successful therapy depends more on fit than on technique or training. "

There are a number of different areas and styles of counselling and psychotherapy. The counselling approach that Billy uses invites people to develop a deeper awareness and understanding of themselves. He empowerspeople to find what might be preventing them from accessing their true nature. This approach is aimed at the entire person - physical, emotional, spiritual and mental. The therapeutic relationship invites you to explore your own resources, your capacity for self determination and your ability to improve your life.

Billy uses a combination of different therapies depending on what the clients needs are. Each person is different and what works for one person may not work for another. Because of the nature of the relationship between therapist and client, Billy works in a style that suits the individual client.

About
My name is Gina Dowd and I work as a Counsellor/ Psychotherapist with Adults, Teenagers and Children. I have been providing counselling and support to individuals and families for over 15 years in various settings.  A qualified Psychotherapist, I trained with the Tivoli Institute in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy. I am a member of the Irish Association of Counselling Practitioners and am Garda vetted by the HSE.
My initial training was in Social Work. I have worked within both the public and private sector of the HSE and NHS in Ireland and the U.K. Having completed a Degree and Masters in Social Work I gained further training in Bereavement and Loss, Family Therapy, Children and Loss, Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. My experience includes work with Bereaved adults and Children in Hospice and Palliative Care Teams, Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse, direct work with young Children and Teenagers with anxiety and loss. Personal development in Yoga training with adults and children has enabled me to incorporate and understanding of both body and mind in my counselling approach.


Services
Children
This work offers an opportunity to young children to explore issues of anxiety, loss change or upset that may be happening in their lives. Working alongside parents in family sessions promotes the interaction and communications patterns that facilitate change. All work requires parental consent and initial family consultation. I work with children from age 4+.

Teenagers/ Adolescents
One to one work which supports the sharing of feelings regarding anxiety, change & loss, sexual identity, fears and worries loneliness or frustration. The therapeutic space I offer is an opportunity for a young person to begin to get to know themselves and figure out their own place in the world. Family sessions are offered in consultation with the younger person as a way to encourage communication and facilitate positive change within the family network.

Adults
The work of therapy is most often associated with present difficulties and a sense of unease in the world. For many this often relates to childhood memories, experiences and introjections. My training in the psychodynamic and eclectic model affords me the opportunity to work with adults who face many challenges and upsets in their lives. For many feelings of stress, despair or anxiety lead to unhappiness in themselves and confusion around identity and the way forward. I offer adults the opportunity to talks through their concerns in a helpful and supportive way so that a person can make sense of both their feelings in body and mind. Short or long term support is offered depending on individual need and requirements.

The Older Adult
From my experience over the years older people today face many issues which are unique to the 65+ age range. Elder Abuse, Issues of identity, Bereavement and Separation are some of the many issues which face the older adult today. Having worked with older people for most of my career to date I have found that support to enable the older person to express feeling of loss and change due to illness, death or abuse are so important. The support I offer is grounded in an appreciation of the wisdom and challenges faced by many older people today and the opportunity to share and express all that is relevant about ageing today.

The many issues that I deal with include:
Childhood Issues & Trauma, Sexual Identity, Grief, Loss& Relationship Separation Anxiety & Depression, Personal Development, Sexual, Physical & Emotional Abuse, Self Esteem Confidence & Assertiveness.

Helplink’s Play Therapy and Creative Therapy Services

Play Therapy with Helplink is for children aged 3 to 10 years old and our Creative Therapy  service is for young people aged 11 to 15 years old.

These forms of therapy allow children and young people the time and space to work out what may be troubling them and also to express their feelings through their most natural method of communication – PLAY.

In our Galway Play Therapy and Creative Therapy service appointments are 45 minutes long, they are non-directive and non-investigative in nature, whereby the child/young person leads the sessions and the therapist follows. The room holds the play/creative therapy ‘tool kit’ which includes sand, clay, puppets, role play, art materials, therapeutic stories, creative visualisations and music/movement. The aim is that when the child/young person feels comfortable they will begin to express the negative or difficult emotions through their actions, the therapist is able to track and observe what is happening and gently guide the child/young person when necessary.  The therapist provides the space which allows the child/young person to play/be creative as they need to with as few limits as possible but as many as necessary (for physical and emotional safety). All play/creative therapy sessions are confidential, details of the sessions shall only be disclosed in line with child protection procedures.

Who is this service for?: Any child over the age of 3 years can benefit from play therapy appointments as this type of therapy nurtures creative thinking, builds self-esteem, confidence, resilience and much more. Play therapy can be specifically used to support children with any emotional or behavioural difficulties, who have suffered bereavement/loss, suffering with anxiety or are having any family issues but to name a few referral reasons. Creative therapy is for older children aged 11 to 15 as above this service can assist these children across multiple areas. At this time appointments are only available in Galway City.

Our Play/Creative Therapist: Denise Gordon is graduate of NUI Galway and the Academy of Child and Play Psychotherapy. She holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Practice Based Play Therapy (NFQ:Level 9), as well as this Denise has completed her Degree in Arts with Children Studies (NUIG).  All of Denise’s work is guided by the Play Therapy International Framework and she is a member of Play Therapy Ireland.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist I use a person-centred approach seeking to develop a trusting, honest relationship with the client. I put emphasis on listening and accepting people for whom they are. My personal style is warm and compassionate.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including the following;

Depression                       Anxiety                            Grief                  Sexuality and Identity          Bullying

Relationship problems      Trauma                           Illness and Disability                                      Self harm and suicide

Sexual Abuse                   Mental health                  Loneliness                                                     Self Esteem


Over the past 25 years I have worked in guidance and training roles in the private sector, with youth, in disability services and community organisations. I have gained broad experience of helping people to address difficult issues and I believe that I can help people to achieve their potential and to live fulfilling lives.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist I use a person centred style but also embrace styles such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Reality Therapy, all of which are designed to support the client.

The main benefits which  my clients have toltd me that they got from counselling are;

- Live with greater ease and peace of mind
- Address problems which cause stress and anxiety
- Increased reslience
- Helps to see new opportunities and choices for growth.
- Better relationships.

Adults: Counselling and Psychotherapy



Counselling can a provide safe supportive place to find new ways to address a crisis in work or a relationship. Psychotherapy works on long standing problems often rooted in difficult traumatic early life experiences which when spoken about in detail can enable you to make better choices in relationships and life in general.

Counselling, sometimes called “talk therapy,” is a conversation or a series of conversations between the counsellor and client.  Counselling usually focuses on a particular problem and in taking steps decided by the client to address this problem.  The problem is often discussed in the present tense without too much attention to past experiences. You do not have to be in crisis to benefit from counselling or psychotherapy – however, it can be a great support or resource at times of crisis or difficulty in our lives.

Psychotherapy, like counselling, is based on a healing relationship between the therapist and client. Psychotherapy takes place over a series of meetings between the therapist and client over a longer timespan  than counselling. It enables you to deal with deeper, more long-term issues that may have their roots in your past, (e.g. traumatic issues from childhood) which are affecting our present life.

Adolescents: Counselling

Adolescence is a complex developmental stage, starting around twelve years of age. It is distinct from childhood and yet is not adulthood. Adolescent therapy helps teenagers and their families to negotiate the difficulties that can sometimes emerge at this time.  These include challenges in relationships at home, school, moving to third level education, bullying, sexuality, eating disorders, withdrawal, depression, anxiety, aggression, suicidal thoughts, family changes and bereavement.  Counselling can help the adolescent understand and make sense of their feelings/behaviour and who they are and want to be. It can also be the place where they learn about relating with a safe and caring adult.

I provide confidential one to one counselling and psychotherapy. I offer teenagers a safe, non- judgemental space  to explore the issues and challenges that they are meeting their daily lives.

It is important that adolescents feel secure to talk in a confidential place.  As such parents will be asked to allow their child the freedom to attend their sessions on their own.

I am interest in working with this age group as I believe that many of the problems faced by adults later in life could be helped with counselling and psychotherapy earlier in life.

Children: Play Therapy

Play Therapy refers to a variety of techniques and methods used to help children  who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions or behaviour.  Playing, drawing, building, using sand and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems for children and adolescents.

Play Therapy helps children understand confused feelings and upsetting events. Rather than having to explain what is troubling them, as adult therapy usually expects, children use play to communicate at their own level and at their own pace. Play Therapy helps children work through emotional, social and behavioural difficulties and helps address family problems. It uses the medium of play, rather than talk, to help the child learn to express themselves, explore and make sense of the world in which they live and resolve any difficult or painful experiences.

Play therapy may involve an individual child, a family, or multiple families or a group of children. In children and adolescents, playing, drawing, building, using sand and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems.

We provide help for anyone who is having problems in their lives because they are drinking alcohol heavily or dependently. The treatment is done in your own home.This may also include an Alcohol Detox and this is done, again in your own home, by a registered, qualified nurse. Our treatment is called Integrated Treatment or Dual Diagnosis Care. Dual Diagnosis are the words you may hear when someone is talking about a person that has a mental health difficulty, like anxiety, stress or depression and along with that they also have an alcohol or drug problem. This means that the person is treated for their mental health condition along with their addiction or alcohol abuse problem. If both problems are diagnosed then both must be treated or neither will get better.

I offer both long and short term talking therapy, lasting between 6 weeks and ongoing as long as you feel comfortable and the therapy is beneficial to you. I also offer counseling for couples. Each session lasts for 50 minutes. We can discuss the likely duration for the therapy in your first session, but many clients prefer to leave it open rather than working to time limits. 
As a therapist trained in both Transpersonal and Integrative techniques, I tailor my approach largely to you as an individual as well as to the stage in the therapeutic process that you are at. In addition to therapeutic discussion on the issue you present, we may work with the creative imagination which can be very powerful, should you be open, ready and willing to do this kind of exercise. For example, we may use dreams, music, sand trays, visualisations, imagery and more in order to guide you to an exploration of your own inner knowing.
I work with issues such as (but not limited to) the following:
Abuse (emotional, sexual, physical, verbal)
Addiction
Agoraphobia
Anger
Anxiety
Bereavement
Career / life direction
Depression
Eating disorders
Isolation
Low self esteem
Miscarriage
Pain
Panic
Personality Disorders i.e., Borderline personality
PTSD and trauma
Relationship difficulties
Schizophrenia
Spiritual direction
Self-harm
Sexual problems
Stress


I am experienced in working with clients from all over the world, including refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers, and speaking a variety of languages in the therapy.
