About Us

A Few Words

Hi there. You’ve just landed on an Irish company website with Offices here in Ireland and with real people working with us. There are no Bots here, just genuine Consultants who want to help you. Welcome!

Just for the record, we are not a cheat service! We are a research, writing and communications mentoring company established in 2007 with a focus on academic and scholarly supervision. It’s hugely important this is clear. There are lots of companies out there in the ether offering a cheat service to students but that’s not us. Now that we have that issue sorted…Are you interested in achieving a 1:1 in your studies? Do you need a first class distinction to progress in your career? Or, are you struggling with aspects of your project work or research desiring direction and assistance to successfully complete? If so, you’ve come to the right place. And we have the metrics to prove it!

The Clinic is a specialist service with Offices in Galway and Limerick, Ireland. Our multi-disciplinary team of nine consulting staff works with individuals and groups over the age of eighteen to fully enhance your research, writing and communications portfolios. We believe in excellence, in helping you to attain the best possible grade – and we have achieved this with consistent honours grades awarded to our clients. We work across all academic disciplines with qualitative and quantitative expertise, providing academic mentoring, one-to-one supervision for your research needs, thesis/project consulting solutions, proofreading, forensic editing and bespoke training. Check out the many genuine reviews from real people Testimonials on this site, our Face Book Page, Instagram @DissertationDoctor or on our Twitter @ThesisClinic written by clients who have availed of, and believe in our service and have been kind enough to endorse us. We mentor clients to achieve the very best results with, and for, them. Here’s a delighted Tom (on the left) who achieved a 1:1 in his Masters Thesis with our Niall as his academic mentor.

We are cost-effective and outcome focused.

We have sat on national education and assessment boards and have experience as external and internal examiners up to Doctoral level so know exactly what is sought to get you that magical grade! Even better, we cater for all academic disciplines.

Our specialists are excellent researchers and workshop presenters with the evaluative aptitude, critical knowledge, analytical proficiency and citation style expertise to get you through the process. We understand that Academic Departments differ in their thesis and dissertation criteria. That’s why we make sure to accommodate the individual needs of each of our clients. We work with all of the major citation style formats. We can also assist in formatting the front matter (e.g., title page, signature page, table of contents) and back matter (e.g., appendices) to meet the requirements of your University, Institute of Technology, Private College, School, or Department. our Clinic staff are specialists in concepts that do not change; critical thinking, superior research design and development. Specifically, we engage in forensic editing of your manuscripts.

Training Programmes & Workshops

RelRewsWe offer a range of Training Programmes and Workshops across various themes including mental health, suicide awareness, mediation, conflict resolution, academic research skills, statistical analysis, business plan development and creative writing.

We provide an independent evaluation service for businesses focusing on process as well as outcome evaluation. This not only allows us to show the impact of the project (for example, increased self-awareness and motivation amongst employees), but how this impact contributes to more distal outcomes for the participants (for example, increased attendance and attainment at conferences and trade shows) and wider societal outcomes (for example, increased pro-social behaviour or community engagement). This aims to show how these developmental project outcomes (sometimes referred to as ‘soft’ outcomes) contribute and impact on more distal or tangible outcomes (sometimes referred to as ‘hard’ outcomes).

FAQs on Editing

What exactly is ‘editing?'

Editorial Assessment

An editorial assessment is a manuscript review that provides feedback on the structure of your document. The main purpose of an editorial assessment is to give you a sense of your document’s overall strengths and weaknesses, so you can pursue additional editing services if required.

Developmental Editing

Developmental editing takes a close look at the larger structures of your document: plot, characters, themes, and tone. A developmental editor ensures that these ‘big picture’ elements are strong before you move onto the minutiae of each line.

Copy Editing

Copy editing polishes your mechanics, sharpens your prose, and ensures consistency of style. This is the service you need if your story’s structure is solidly in place, but the text itself can be improved.


Proofreading is the final stage of the editing process: a thorough examination of your document that corrects minor errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar. A proofreader does not feed back on your structure or other major editorial issues, but rather guarantees that your text goes to print (so to speak) without a single typo.
One of the most common questions we get asked from prospective clients is, 'Are you based in Ireland?' Happily, our Offices are just outside Athenry in County Galway, but we also meet clients face to face in Galway City, Limerick City, Cork City, Athlone and Dublin. Not the nameless individuals in some remote part of China, Pakistan or the UK that one tends to find with many Thesis & Project Assistance online sites, but real people with actual mobile phone numbers and email addresses who will answer your queries within 24 hours for sure and meet with you on a one-to-one basis.
We work with both third level students and SME businesses. Because our company is fundamentally a research and consulting/communications entity, we also work with businesses in helping them access funding and partner initiatives in areas they might not have considered or find difficult to access in addition to document content and ghostwriting services.

Yes, we actually expect you to and you should take caution at any service that claims to be of ‘editorial assistance’ yet prohibits communication with the writer whom you are paying. Here at the Clinic, such communication is a part of the project process. Without it, without getting as much information from you as possible, we won’t be able to fully utilise our talent to address your needs. You can always use support email to communicate with us. On our side we simply monitor the communication to match our standards and pass all the comments to you or your allocated Clinic staff member in a timely manner.

Well, you can actually meet with us in person! And, in our experience, this is usually the main concern for clients. We also have a rigorous quality system in place and we are personable. Our staff are nice people. We really try very hard to cultivate a long term relationship with our clients. We treat them as partners treat each other – simply because that’s what it really is for us, a partnership. We appreciate your trust and we want reciprocate by giving you the service you expect to get for the money you spend. All our communications remain confidential.

Our editors use the track changes feature in MS Word to clearly highlight the suggested improvements to the document. Comments are placed in the margins to provide further guidance and suggestions.
All Clinic editors sign confidentiality agreements when they join our consulting staff. The confidentiality of your research and our relationship with you is one of our highest priorities.
We offer three options for submitting a payment. When you submit your manuscript, you can pay using any major credit card through our secure payment partner, PayPal. Alternatively, you can make a wire transfer directly from your bank account to ours. Finally, you can pay in good old hard cash.
Yes, we automatically email you an invoice after we receive your payment.
