My name is James Foley. I am an accredited Counsellor and a Registered Psychiatric Nurse. For over 20 years I have worked with people with serious mental health issues. While I enjoyed the interaction with the patients very much, over time I found nursing too constraining in its role and the medical treatment model alone unsatisfactory.
In my 20 plus years of professional caring work I have learned that the human heart, mind and soul can be fragile. When cared for and empowered though, us humans can achieve greatness in the normality of life. was established to provide values based therapeutic talking therapy that promotes emotional resilience. Prevail aspires to be grounded in sound therapeutic principles and the clients’ lived experience at all times.

Each client is a uniquely created person, with inherent abilities to find a way to live in their difficult situations.
Each client comes to counselling in need of a safe space to tell their story. The manner and degree to which they share their story is in their hands and is not dictated by the counsellor.
Each client brings with them their own history and relationships. In Prevail, working with and respecting this is recognised as part of the counselling work.
Each client needs support in all areas of their life, how they think, what they feel and what they believe. Prevail believes such a holistic approach is key to counselling work.

As a general rule we all need counselling support at some time. While awareness around minding our mental health has vastly improved, Irish people, especially us men, are still slow to seek support when needed. Delaying seeking support will make matters worse, and longer more complicated work will have to be done.

To put it simply if you think you need counselling therapy (and why else would you be reading this?), you probably do.
