About Us – Affordable Counselling

Midlands Mental Health Clinic offers affordable counselling to individuals in Mullingar, Portlaoise and Tullamore. Change is possible – let us empower you.


Our aim is to enhance the lives and, more specifically, the mental well-being of as many people as possible. Both education and treatment are central tenets of our approach. We offer affordable counselling in the Midlands. However, we cater to the mental health needs of individuals and groups from all over Ireland.

The Midlands Mental Health Clinic provides a wide range of services, including affordable counselling sessions; programmes on Anger Management, Assertiveness, Mindfulness and Anxiety/Depression; supervision for students and professionals in the sector, and other relevant informational workshops for groups.

Clients, along with any queries we receive, are treated with the utmost respect and confidentiality at all times. If we do not feel like we are right for your needs, we promise to point you in the right direction.

Our affordable counselling plans are tailor-made to suit every client’s personal needs. We’re happy to work with you to make a plan that serves you best.


We were founded in by Séamus Sheedy, one of Ireland’s most prominent counsellors. Seamus spent two years as President of the IACP (Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and was the President of the EAC (European Association of Counsellors) from April 2014 until December 2015, before stepping down to focus on promoting this organisation.

Séamus has worked in the sector since 1999. He has a Masters in Supervisory Counselling from UCD, following on from undergrads in Trinity and DCU, along with many other training qualifications. He has lectured in both DCU and Athlone Institute of Technology.
