Description Alice McEleney Psychotherapy & Counselling, Galway
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.
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.
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 am trained in many different ways of helping people, including both traditional therapeutic methods and new techniques supported by recent research. 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 am a Graduate Member of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) and I follow 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.
