Best Psychotherapist in Dublin

The 8 Best Psychotherapists in Dublin

Taking care of your mental well-being is one of the most important investments you can make. Not only does mental health affect your everyday life, but it also alters how you think and handle situations in the long term.

When faced with emotional difficulty, give your mental health the same importance as your physical health by seeking professional help. We’ve rounded up some of the best psychotherapists in Dublin to help you plan your next steps. 

Much of the stigma in seeking professional help partly comes from concerns about its cost. Likewise, we also understand that choosing the best one may not necessarily be the right one for you.

Online therapy is also an option if a face-to-face session isn’t possible. Take note though that as of writing, only one therapist is available to book for online therapy and it’s best to contact them for more information.

Capable Minds is a joint project by psychotherapists Robert Byrne and Sarah Gilligan. Their sole goal is to provide a modern approach to psychotherapeutic practices.

They take pride in specialising in concerns of the LGBT community. Both psychotherapists have extensively worked with various marginalised groups in the past, and continue to do so today.

Even with this in mind, they welcome all individuals, couples, and groups from all walks of life to their doors. Do take note though that group therapy is currently running on a limited basis.

Currently, Capable Minds doesn’t have an online therapy option, which isn’t ideal for patients who live relatively far. But don’t worry, their clinic’s conveniently located in the heart of the city, and is only a two-minute walk away from the nearest bus stop.

What’s also noteworthy is that their newest associate therapist, Thomaz Lopes, is fluent in English and Portuguese. So if you’re a native Portuguese speaker, you might be more comfortable in having Thomaz as your therapist.

  • Ideal for members of the LGBT community
  • Ideal for Portuguese speakers
  • Convenient clinic location

Cons

  • Small team of psychotherapists
  • Limited group therapy slots

Next on our list is The Other Clinic. Despite having a relatively smaller team, each psychotherapist holds at least one master’s degree and years of experience in psychotherapy.

They have also worked with dozens of issues in the past including addiction, bereavement, self-harming, to name a few. You may look at each therapist’s profile on their website to determine which one may be suitable for you. 

While individual therapy’s their strength, they also accommodate couples who may be having troubles in their relationships. Group therapy also isn’t available for those who seek it.

Important to note about The Other Clinic is their pricing scheme. The first preliminary session is priced at €90, which may be a bit steep for some, but succeeding sessions are priced depending on the case at hand.

If you’re unavailable on the weekdays or even on Saturdays, you may book an appointment with them on Sundays instead. In fact, it’s the only clinic on our list that accommodates patients on all days of the week.

Customer Reviews

See what some of their past patients have to say about them:

“I was recommended to this clinic and was sceptical at first, much like about putting a review online, but after the level of care I received I wanted to share. I had a lot of questions like was it for me, would I be able, could I afford it etc. but after contacting them many of these were answered and I felt more at ease. I had been struggling with things for a while and when I started I didn’t quite understand the connection between what the therapist said and what I was saying but it really taught me to think twice about things and why I might feel a certain way, it really opened my eyes. Coming here and more importantly sticking it out is one of the best decisions I’ve made and I’m sincerely thankful for all their help. Thanks again!” —Barry M., Google Reviews

“I would highly recommend the  services of the wonderful people at the other clinic. From the very first contact they have helped me to feel at ease and assured. They have guided me through my ongoing process, with great care and are enabling me finally to see how I am able to deal with so much more than I ever thought possible! . They have given me a safe place to just talk and allow myself to really see why I have been struggling.  Great people doing great work!” —Christopher M., Google Reviews

Customer Reviews

Check out some comments about Reborn Clinic below:

“I would highly recommend Renata, her approach helped me back on my feet after a tough patch and I feel like a new, wiser, more awake person! I came to Renata after I had had other sessions with other counsellors/psychologists and I just didn’t click with them. I had just had an experience in my life that left me overwhelmed and lost. After 6 months with Renata I was solidly back on my feet and I still check in now to look after my mental health. I leave all the interactions we have felt more aware and more motivated, I cry, I learn and I laugh in each session. Renata has a very gentle approach but she gets deep to the root of problems and offers valuable, practical solutions to work through them. I felt very supported in resolving my issues for myself! I would highly recommend it to anyone who feels a bit lost and doesn’t know where to start!” —Ciara, WhatClinic

“I felt instantly at ease with Renata. I was very nervous before going in. She’s very knowledgeable and she seems very humane which was something I worried about. Would highly recommend her services and would advise anyone to not put it off as I had for years. I’m working on some depression and anger management. One session in, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.” —Shane, WhatClinic
