About Clare McGee Therapy

I work from an integrative perspective and tailor sessions to each client's individual needs.   I see my work as a collaboration with you, my client, to enable you to understand what has been troubling you and to help you to find ways to heal.  My work is based primarily on the Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) schools of therapy.  However, I also bring in skills, theories and techniques from other schools of therapy such as existential therapy, gestalt therapy and reality therapy. 

I offer counselling to help clients deal with many issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, self-

harm, anger, bereavement, low self-esteem etc. and I also offer relationship counselling to couples experiencing difficulties.  In addition to my work as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist my background in Occupational Psychology gives me a unique perspective on helping with any issues surrounding the workplace. 


I hold a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and a MSc in 

Occupational Psychology.  In addition, I am also a pre-accredited member of the Irish Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy ( ACP) and work within their code of ethics.  

If you feel you might benefit from counselling, please give me a call or email me.

"The therapist had a relational answer to all my problems and gave me tools to deal with everyday"
5 50Reviewed 15 Jun 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
I went to Clare with severe anxiety, which left me out of work and petrified of going anywhere. I suffered severe anxiety for 8 months before I went to Clare. I had tried 3 different medications, hypnotherapy, books and had regular trips to the mental health day hospital.

Through my sessions with Clare, she gave me the tools and skills to start working on my anxiety and my thoughts. She also helped me face and deal with the changes I needed to make in my life. 6 months on I am no longer controlled by my thoughts and fears. I have booked my first flight abroad with my son alone and am looking forward to it.

I chose Clare through her reviews on whatclinic.com and liked the idea of the sessions being lead by whatever that patient wished to talk about. Clare comes across as compassionate and well educated in psychotherapy. She had a relational answer to all my problems and gave me tools to deal with my everyday life. As well as encouraging exercise, meditation and journaling which I found really useful.

"I have new real skills that help me both get on with things and relax"
5 50Reviewed 19 Oct 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
When I first went to Clare I was really feeling lost, fed up and desperate. Her sessions got me back on my feet by helping me to figure out how to know what I wanted.

It seemed like I could understand and intellectualize how I wanted to live but could never quite put it into practice. Dr. McGee helped me to figure out what bits were missing. Now I have new real skills that help me both get on with things and relax.

All those things I knew I would like to be doing but couldn't quite link them into my life, now I can do them. I'm not afraid of making decisions anymore and I've stopped second guessing myself so much.

The time in my sessions with Clare was really precious important time to unravel loads of conflicting emotions and thoughts that had become a big jumble of stress. She dealt with my awkwardness and discomfort in confronting things with great care, sensitivity and humor. It has made me see things differently and do practical things to prevent getting into a rut again. I am immeasurably stronger now.

Clare listened and challenged me consistently. Her attention to detail and recall is uncanny. She would recall something I'd said months before which helped me to achieve a new sense of awareness.

So many things in my life that needed to happen have happened since I started going to Clare. This is no coincidence. When I was looking for a therapist my friend said 'you want someone who is empathetic, no-nonsense and smarter than me! I found her.

"Claire encouraged me to look at myself in a more balanced way"
5 50Reviewed 20 Sep 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy,Psychotherapist Consultation
I visited Claire for help on several issues I have faced for many years. Primarily panic disorder/agoraphobia; and other issues related to that (depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues etc.)

Initially, therapy focused on my story to date; and exploring the issues I have. Then we came up with some goals for me which would make things better.

One major thing I sought was practical steps to help with my agoraphobia symptoms. I'd had CBT therapy some years prior, and this had worked very well, but I needed a 'top-up', and to get some steam under a new program of exposure work.

One of Claire's first recommendations was to institute a daily practice of mindfulness meditation (a practice I adopted and heartily recommend). We also worked out a structured program of 'exposure' work. We talked through various situations which I had hitherto avoided through phobia (e.g. driving alone on a dual-carraigeway, or going to a concert); exploring them, and making them a little bit less ominous. During treatment, I made excellent progress on my agoraphobia symptoms.

We discovered that I tend to view myself in a lop-sided, negative light; and Claire encouraged me to look at myself in a more balanced way. A practical step she encouraged was to dwell on some positive characteristics of myself at some stage each day.

On the whole, my experience with Claire was excellent.

On a personal level, Claire is extremely empathetic, personable, knowledgeable and professional, and I always felt better coming out of a session.
