Key Benefits of Talking Therapy


We all know how hard it is to set aside "me time". Talking Therapy means you can simply dedicate time for what is important for YOU.  Verbalising your thoughts and feelings lets you see them from a new perspective.  Your coping mechanisms can strengthen, your physical well-being can improve and you can positively become more self-aware.

Our Client Promise


Many face challenges and difficulties in their life at some stage, which can be overwhelming.  Talking Therapy is one of the most powerful weapons we have against a whole range of Health & Mental Health issues.  Having someone to talk to, who is there to listen, without judgement, is one of the invaluable benefits that Clan Therapy can offer.

About Nicola Clancy

Nicola is a Professional Psychologist and Therapist.  From an early age, Nicola always had a natural fascination with people’s behaviours, how events affect people’s lives and what can be learned from that. As an early school leaver who returned to formal education in adulthood, Nicola’s capacity to achieve, significantly developed. 

Nicola demonstrated motivation and dedication by advancing academically when completing a BA (Hons) Psychology, MSc in Applied Psychology, a Certificate in Counselling skills, a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a Diploma in Educational Psychology and SafeTalk & ASSIST Training. Nicola is currently finalising her training for a Diploma in Strategic Clinical Hypnotherapy & Mind Coaching.  Nicola has recently been appointed as the Health & Well-Being Officer for Fingal Ravens GAA Football Club.

Nicola was proud to be selected as one of 21 people worldwide, to participate in the specialised programme - MSc in Genetics & Genomic Counselling.  Genetic Counselling is the process through which knowledge about the genetic aspects of illnesses is shared by trained professionals with those who are at an increased risk or either having a heritable disorder or of passing it on to their unborn offspring.  There are approximately only 15 Genetic Counsellors in Ireland today; hence there is a growing demand and long waiting times for such services.  Nicola is due to complete this programme in 2021.

Nicola has worked both in the Public and Private Health & Mental Health sectors, where she has gained exceptional knowledge of services, assessments, therapy types, emergency services, project management etc.

Personally, Nicola has successfully overcome many obstacles and has been through many of life’s experiences, all of which has positively shaped her as a person and a professional. Nicola has a deep sincerity and openness about her which enables her to establish an excellent rapport with people. Nicola is a creative, fun and down-to-earth person who takes a realist’s approach to most situations by being willing to see things as they are and deal with them in a practical and achievable manner.

"Before I came to see Nicola, I was smoking thirty cigarettes per day and had been a smoker for over 20 years. The session went absolutely brilliant. I never thought I was going to get off the cigarettes but I know now that I will never go back on them. I have no side effects or withdrawals and I am feeling wonderful. Highly recommend Nicola". Terry (48) from Dublin 

"I would like to say thank you very much to Nicola at Clan Therapy. Ever since my first hypnotherapy session 2 weeks ago, I haven’t had a panic attack! Especially in the mornings, I wake up full of life, my whole family has noticed a huge difference in me.  Just like to say a big thank you for all your help. I am back to my normal happy self. Many thanks for everything". Anne (42), Raheny, Dublin

" I've just finished 4 sessions with Nicola & I can’t believe how well it has worked!. Dieting has never worked for me & any time I went on a diet I was miserable & anxious.  I would just obsess about food.  I was able to let go of my dependency on food (particularly sugar!) & getting back to eating normally.  Within a month of eating well, drinking water, exercising more & not eating unwanted sugar I lost 11 pounds! I'm chuffed with the results so far! You’re honest, sincere & was so genuinely happy to hear of my success that you regained my faith in hypnosis and hypnotists. Thanks.
