My Midlands Clinics (Also available online via Zoom):

  • My Athlone (Westmeath / Roscommon) clinic is held in the very comfortable and pleasant surrounds of The Dancing Soul, Athlone Therapy Centre, Monksland Business Park,  Athlone.  It’s the top floor over the Primary Care Centre.    Ample free parking is available at the centre.
  • Directions: Take the Athlone Bypass and exit at Junction 13 (signposted Tuam, Monksland, Athlone West)
    At roundabout take 3rd exit signposted Monksland
    At 2nd roundabout take 2nd exit.
    Continue for a bit under 1km and you’ll see a Seat/Kia garage on the right. Just after that is where you turn, also to the right. You’ll see a large sign for Primary Care Centre Monksland. Take the 1st left and you’ll see the centre on the left. It’s very obvious with huge signs.
  • In Tullamore (Offaly)  (Due to oversubscription in Athlone, this clinic is currently not operating. Please enquire about availability in Athlone.)

 

Online Clinic

Therapy delivered remotely or in-person has been shown to have the same outcomes and success rates.  Online sessions will of course mean that you will not have to travel to my clinic.  You will just need to ensure that you have access to a private space – a room away from colleagues or family, even sitting in your car might suit.  I send you the link to the session before the appointment and all you have to do is click on it and follow a couple of instructions.  Zoom is fully encrypted and approved as a confidential method of delivering therapy.

 

Therapy

Therapeutic Sessions are 50 minutes in duration. However, this can vary as if we’re working on something important at minute 50 we don’t suddenly stop, so please do allow a bit of extra time in your schedule in case we need it.

How many sessions will I need?
That varies according to what you are attending for. After an initial free consultation I will be able to give you an estimate of how many  sessions you will likely need. Since all people and their difficulties are individual, the number of sessions varies from person to person. Some usual ranges would be –

 

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – €100 per session

7-10 sessions on average for Single-Incident PTSD. Complex Developmental PTSD needs to be assessed on an individual basis.
You should expect significant improvement as the sessions progress. The fee per session is €100.

 

Anxiety – €100 per session

If related to specific events, then treated as PTSD, above. If  ‘free-floating’ – where you feel anxiety and don’t know why – then it varies according to the likely cause. Anxiety that develops later in life more frequently is treatable in 10-15 sessions. Where anxiety is present since childhood then often 20-30 sessions are likely. The fee per session is €100.

 

Fears and Phobias – €150 per session

Where you’re having a strong reaction to a particular stimulus (such as public speaking, spiders, etc.) – usually  2-4 sessions.  The fee per session is €150.

Reduced rates available on request for unwaged clients.

Once I’ve had an introductory consultation with you and understand your difficulties as well as what you wish to achieve, I will give you an estimate of the number of sessions before you start into therapy.

 

Introductory Consultation – Free

To discuss your problems, and get a greater explanation of what’s involved in therapy, please contact me and book an initial assessment.

This is an assessment of what the issues are and how they’re active in the mind. That will let me know if I should be able to assist or not, and if not, I should have enough of an understanding of the issues to recommend the right person for you.

That takes about 45 minutes on average, and there’s no charge for that as until we do that I can’t say for certain if I can take you on. This can be done online via Zoom or in clinic. If this is booked and not attended it can be rescheduled at a fee of €50.

Therapeutic Sessions are approximately 50 minutes in duration. Consultations are by appointment only and can be in-person or online. If you have any questions about how I can assist you with any issue, please contact me. I’ll be happy to help.
