Dr Elaine Ryan Founder of MoodSmith

I’m a psychologist who worked in the National Health Service in England before setting up a private practice in Ireland. During my time in private practice I realised that access to well qualified psychologists was expensive. Not only that, many people would benefit from self help or just reading information from a practitioner. This is what made me start creating courses.

I started this website in 2011 and founded the company MoodSmith® in 2017.

If you would like my help, I have created online self-help courses that I based on my work with clients in my private practice.

I am registered with The British Psychological Society (BPS) and The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
