My name is Grace Harrison. I am a qualified and accredited psychotherapist and counsellor. I hold a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy with Dublin City University and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology with the University of Limerick. I run a busy private practice in Ennis Therapy Centre, and I work part-time as a student counsellor in the Student Counselling Service of the University of Galway. In my role as student counsellor, I provide one-to-one counselling to students of all ages and design and lead counselling group programmes on eating disorder recovery and neurodivergence. Previous counselling groups I have led include managing anxiety and depression, building self-confidence and self-compassion and healthy relationships. I practice in line with the IACP ethical framework and code of practice.

I have a particular interest in youth mental health, eating disorders and neurodivergence hence I have completed further training in each of these areas. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Adolescent Psychotherapy, a Practitioner Certificate in Working with Autistic Adults, and completed an Excellence in Practitioner Skills for Eating Disorders training.


I like to contribute to research where possible hence, I conducted research into student counselling services in Ireland and this was published in the international peer-reviewed, 'Counselling & Psychotherapy Research' Journal (Harrison, G. & Gordon, E., 2021). I also like to raise awareness of mental health issues, and advocate where possible, particularly in my special areas of interest, hence I enjoy writing informative pieces on mental health topics, featuring on podcasts, and joining Gavin Grace/ Alan Morrisey on the ‘Morning Focus’ Clare FM radio show to participate in discussions on mental health in the Irish context today. 

From time to time, I offer talks in secondary schools on topics such as anxiety and self-esteem, and eating behaviours and body image.

My Services

Adult & Adolescent Psychotherapy

(Face-to-Face or Online Video Sessions)

I offer a safe and supportive space for individuals over the age of 15 to explore difficulties they are experiencing in their lives. I support clients to come into greater self-understanding and self-acceptance and offer proactive tools and psychoeducation to support their empowerment in overcoming difficulties. Online video sessions are available as an alternative to face-to-face, should you wish to avail of therapy from the convenience of your own home.

I have experience working with the following:

Abusive Relationships

Addictive Behaviours

Academic/ Work Challenges

Anxiety and Stress

Bereavement and Loss

Childhood Issues


Eating Disorders

Body Image Concerns

Family Issues

Relationship Difficulties

Self-Esteem and Identity Issues

Neurodivergence (Autism/ ADHD)


Sex Issues


Substance Misuse



Couples Therapy

Couple problems are viewed as a product of the dynamic in the couple relationship. Couples' communication styles and behavioral patterns can lead to feelings of being unheard and unappreciated which may cause frequent arguments, a loss of intimacy and overall couple dissatisfaction. Couple problems may evolve from home or work stress, disagreements regarding parenting,  infidelity, sex issues, mental health difficulties or addiction. I offer a safe and supportive space for couples to communicate with one and other and to better understand their own emotional experience and communication style such that they can navigate life challenges presented in relationship more effectively.
