Karen Bradley


Karen BradleyBy way of introduction my name is Karen Bradley, and I am based in Co. Galway. I have been seeing clients for therapy since 2017.

Before moving into this work my background was in financial services, working as a fund accountant with different investment banks.

At present, the clients I work with are dealing with various challenges such as work stresses, relationship issues, depression, and anxiety.  My intention is always to provide a safe and confidential space for them to speak openly about any issues they are facing. For me, the relationship between us is key, so I value the importance of building trust in the initial sessions.

I work with some Employee Assistance Programmes, so many clients referred to me are experiencing workplace difficulties. I’ve witnessed the distress that comes with bullying, intimidation, micro-managing., and harassment. Having worked in large institutions previously myself, I also have first-hand experience of the type of negative cultures that can exist in many organisations.

I am fully accredited with the Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (IACP) and hold both a Higher Diploma and Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I trained as an integrative therapist which means I often combine various approaches. Some of the therapies I like to incorporate are referred to as Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.

If you feel I would be a suitable fit for your needs right now, please get in touch.

Tara Coleman


Tara ColemanHello, I am Tara Coleman and I have been working as a therapist for several years. Before this, I worked in social care and community settings.

I currently provide therapy for both individuals and groups. Much of my experience involves working with people with trauma and addictions. I believe it is important to explore how previous or current traumatic experiences impact our lives in the present.

I know through my work that people who have experienced sustained periods of high stress need a calm, empathetic and trusting space where they can acknowledge and understand such experiences, and the accompanying feelings, thoughts, and emotions. I am confident in my ability to both create and contain such a space - where clients can speak confidentially about the issues affecting them.

In working with groups, I have gained insights into the dynamics, influence, and psychology of groups, both their destructive and their reparative nature as well as how these impact on the individual. I have learnt that it is their destructive nature most known to the whistleblower.

I am a fully accredited psychotherapist with the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). I hold an honours degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychoanalytical psychotherapy. I also hold a qualification in art therapy and facilitate art therapy sessions with different community groups. 

I am able to offer sessions online. Should you feel that working with me could be beneficial then I look forward to speaking with you.
