About Me

William Phillips – 
Consultant Psychotherapist & EMDR Practitioner 
MA PgDip (CBT) Dip (CBH) Cert (FST) EMDR (1-3) GQHP MBABCP (Acced) FCIPD

I am the Principal Psychotherapist at Eire Therapy operating from Leitrim in the Republic of Ireland. In addition to my private practice in Ireland, I am also a Consultant Psychotherapist with Sevenoaks CBT and Think CBT in the UK. In addition to my clinic in Carrick on Shannon, I provide online video based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and telephone support for individuals and couples. I have extensive masters / post-graduate level psychological training across a number of different therapeutic approaches including mainstream Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, ACT, CFT, DBT, REBT, EMDR, Applied Behavioural  Analysis, Clinical Hypnotherapy,  and Systemic Therapy. 

Whilst I have extensive experience across a wide range of psychological problems, my clinical specialism is in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and it’s subtypes, including Relationship OCD, Sensorimotor, Hyperawareness, Pure “O” and complex treatment resistant OCD presentations. This also includes the related problems of Health Anxiety, Somatic Disorders, Body Dysmorphic Disorder and  Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours including skin picking and hair pulling.

My approach is informal, down to earth and practical. As an experienced therapist , I work on the basis of mutual trust and a strong commitment to personal change as well as a good sense of humour. I encourage my clients to focus on values and goals; how and what they want to change in their  lives. Sometimes this means talking about what is important and helpful in a respectful and sensitive manner, rather than just repeating what we want to hear.

In addition to my clinical work, I am a qualified executive coach and an NLP master practitioner working with senior managers and business leaders in the Republic of Ireland and internationally. 

I am an accredited member of the BABCP, member of the BPS and Fellow of the CIPD. I abide by the ethical standards laid down by these professional bodies in my clinical and executive coaching work. I can work with you personally or where a different approach is required, refer you to another colleague psychologist or psychotherapist in my role as Principal Psychotherapist at Think CBT. We can discuss this during our initial call.
