The Inform Team

Practicing psychologists and psychotherapists have the professional training and clinical skills to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems. Some people may talk to a psychologist because they have felt depressed, angry, or anxious for a long time. Or, they want help for a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives, or physical health. Others may have short-term problems they want help navigating, such as feeling overwhelmed by a new job, or grieving following the death of a family member. Psychologists and psychotherapists can help people learn to cope with stressful situations, overcome addictions, and even manage chronic illnesses.

Our psychologists also provide educational assessments and court reports where required. Our team of clinical and educational psychologists are professionally insured and registered members of the professional body, the Psychological Society of Ireland (P.S.I.).

Our clinical psychology services are recognised by all major health insurance companies. Check your policy for cover details.
