I have been privileged to have sat with many people over the last number of years. It has been my honour to witness them as they open up and explore the established beliefs, judgments and criticisms that have been causing them distress. Seeing them form new, accepting relationships with themselves and integrate a sense of self-compassion and understanding is something that I will always be grateful for. Peace Inside aims to expand this work as our team supports our clients, and each other, towards the fulfilment of our client’s identified goals.

I have 30 years experience working with a wide range of clients, coming to see me with many different issues, including anxiety, loss, and stress. In addition hundreds of professionals in the area of psychotherapy, counselling and coaching have attended workshops which I have led. My orientation is humanistic. What this means is that my work with you is non-judgemental and non-prescriptive. Our work together aims to help you to gain greater self-awareness, and with this comes release from internal conflict, less anxiety, a greater sense of freedom, and greater ability to make choices that suit you.

My name is Patricia, and I am an integrative therapist. This means I do not solely rely on one theory or approach when working with clients. I would describe my therapeutic lens as both person-centred and humanistic. I see my clients as being the experts of their own world and I am by their side to support change, self-exploration and to provide a safe, non-judgemental space for that journey.

I aspire to provide an inclusive, non-judgemental safe space for my clients to work through their issues. The therapy that I offer is based on the belief that people who come for therapy are experts on their own lives(even if they don't feel like they are!) who have lots of potentially good ideas about how to deal with their problems. One of my roles is to help you make the best of your own experience and understanding. If you would like further information on my practice I invite you to view my website.

I’ve always had a natural curiosity about people and an empathy for others which is most likely the reason why I chose to work in the area of Counselling and Psychotherapy. There is something very special about witnessing someone grow and develop their understanding of themselves. The therapeutic relationship formed with clients is one I hold with high regard and is both a delicate and powerful piece of our work together. My hope in our sessions is to facilitate a safe space for clients to heal and integrate all parts of themselves.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Galway are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Galway then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Galway, or Child Psychologists in Galway.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Galway psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Galway specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
