Hi, my name is Joe Cleary and I'm a highly experienced Pychotherapist - an in-depth form of counselling used to treat mental health concerns. I work with adults one-to-one, in Dundalk and online.

Psychotherapy improves your mental health through speaking freely about whatever is concerning you, and figuring out how you can change your life for the better. Having somewhere to go to on a regular basis where you don't have to pretend you're ok can be a huge benefit, and it can free up your energy to get on with the rest of your life.

A Psychoanalytic approach to psychotherapy (the one I use) takes your symptoms (such as anxiety, depressed mood, ADHD or excess appetite etc.) as
meaningful responses to something going on in your life - in either the present or the past. It's especially useful when you find yourself stuck in repetitive cycles, feeling disconnected from yourself, unable to get to where you want to go. 

I have fifteen years clinical experience and two Masters degrees in theory and practice. I'm fully insured and a Registered Practitioner member of the Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland ( APPI), a member of the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP), and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

The fee is €70/£60 per session, but depending upon your circumstances (such as unemployment) we may agree a different fee. If you want to check if your health insurer will cover some of the cost you can contact me in advance and I'll give you the necessary information.

You can contact me via the form below, or phone via one of the 'Call Me' buttons.
Location: I work in the centre of Dundalk, beside the bus station on the Long Walk.
