Our Services

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Our qualified professional counsellors, psychotherapists psychologists and CBT therapists are trained to work closely with you to enable you to explore thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviours that affect your life negatively.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative, practical and problem oriented approach to emotional problems whereby the client and therapist work together toward understanding difficulties in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings, body responses and behavior.

Couples Relationship Counselling

Many relationships can reach a stage where one or both partners are finding it difficult to see a way forward. The relationship may no longer seem to be providing what the person is looking for and they may now be wondering if it is possible to bring in changes that can help improve the situation.

Child Play Therapy

Sometimes children experience difficulties and behave in ways that may cause disruption to their lives or be of concern to those around them. Play Therapy provides a child with an opportunity to "play out" their thoughts, feelings and problems just as, in certain types of adult therapy, an individual "talks out" their difficulties.

Sex Therapy

Because of the importance of sexual intimacy to developing and maintaining relationships, sexual dysfunction can cause a great deal of distress and anxiety, especially since it is a sensitive topic to discuss. Sex therapy helps with this distress and also with the sexual problem in a direct way.

About Our Approach

Our approach is tailored largely around you and what you need. Through reading the information on this website, or through an initial phone call or email to us, we try to help you identify the issues that you are dealing with.

You may already be clear about the issues you are struggling with, but you may not be sure which approach or form of therapy might best suit you. Again we aim to offer as much information as possible here to explain the different approaches and which may suit you best. 

Our approach is client-centred and we prioritise what you need. If we feel that we cannot help you ourselves, we are more than happy to try and point you in the right direction. 

About Our Expertise

All therapists working at our centres have been vetted carefully by us to ensure that they meet the requirements to work in the fields of counselling, psychotherapy or psychology. The major professional bodies in Ireland are the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP), Irish Association for Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP) and the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI).  All the therapists working from our centres are members of these professional bodies or equivalent bodies.

In addition, all of our therapists are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of continuous professional development (CPD) each year. Many of our therapists have completed extensive further training in fields such as trauma, bereavement, sexuality, CBT, EMDR, couples therapy and Gestalt.

All of our therapists are required to attend regular clinical supervision in order to review their work and develop their expertise.

About You

You may often be seen by others as someone who functions well or highly in many situations, but yet you recognise that there are issues or experiences that hold you back from getting more out of your personal and professional life.

Like us, you live in Ireland of the 2020’s and you will be trying to understand your issues, experiences, relationships, concerns and behaviours in the context of the modern day. It may sometimes feel like it is hard to live up to all of the demands and expectations put onto you. You may feel that you are missing out on what you thought life was going to be really like. You may wonder who you really are sometimes or who you are supposed to be. 

You may wish that you could stop everything,  just to have some space to see what you really want to do next. You may feel that partners, friends or family try to listen but that it doesn’t seem helpful. Or, you may simply not feel like you are ready to talk to them right now.

You may feel like you want to talk to another human being confidentially and without judgement, and say what is really going on for you. You might wish to find new ways of expressing yourself. To find new ways of thinking, behaving or living.

We work with people like you. We see clients of all backgrounds, relationship status, gender, age, sexual orientation, race, and spiritual beliefs. Whatever the issues for you are, we hope that you will feel you can come and talk to us.
