Empowering adults through Therapy

Empowering adults through Therapy

At Gut Feeling Therapy we offer online psychological therapy for adults experiencing many types of emotional or mental health difficulties. Our goal is to help clients to improve their emotional, psychological, physical and relational functioning. As an online psychology practice, we welcome clients from all over Ireland.

Difficulties we treat include: Anxiety, persistent worry, low mood, depression, stress, simple or complex trauma, and maternal mental health difficulties (including fertility struggles and miscarriage). We also specialise in providing psychological support to people with physical health problems, including chronic health conditions and IBS. Additionally, we welcome people who are generally feeling a bit “stuck” in life, or who just aren’t feeling themselves lately. Therapy can help people to navigate life’s ups and downs, tricky family dynamics, and relationship difficulties.

Please note: We do not currently provide assessments for ASD or ADHD.

The type of therapy provided will depend on your particular needs. Your Psychologist can draw from the following approaches:

In your first appointment you will meet with the Psychologist via a secure video platform for about 1 hour and complete an initial assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to develop an understanding of your current difficulties. The first appointment is also an opportunity for you and your Psychologist to see whether you both work well together and whether this service is the right one for you.

Time will also be dedicated to discussing events and experiences from your past that may be relevant to understanding your current struggles. The Psychologist will also ask you what your goals and expectations are for therapy. Together you will agree a treatment plan to help you achieve those goals. 

  • What has brought you to therapy at this time?
  • What difficulties are you are experiencing?
  • How long have these difficulties been going on?
  • What impact do your difficulties have on your life, wellbeing, relationships, etc?

Sessions take place online, using a secure video platform. During your online therapy appointments it is important that you are in a distraction-free environment where you can be assured of privacy. 

Typically, clients attend therapy once per week. Occasionally we may agree to meet fortnightly. Depending on your particular difficulties and goals, the length of therapy may vary. Some clients attend weekly therapy for a few weeks or months, while others attend longer-term. You can discuss your expectations, preferences and circumstances with the Psychologist in your first appointment.
