With what issues can counselling and psychotherapy help me?
Therapy can help with issues from depression, loss, personal development, self esteem, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationships, and feelings of apathy.

How many sessions will I need?
We will discuss your treatment options in our first session. Sessions can be left open-ended with no time frame, or we can devise a treatment program with a start and end date. This will depend on your personal circumstances. Together, we will review our progress and adjust if necessary.

How long will our session last
A typical session lasts between 50- 60 min.

How much does a session cost?
A session costs €60.

How often will I attend?
It depends on your circumstances but it is usually about once a week. This provides you and I the time to build up a trusting and honest relationship as the therapy becomes more consistent and dynamic.

What happens if I cannot attend a session and I need to cancel?
If you need to cancel a session please provide at least 24 hours notice. If you are not in a position to cancel within the 24 hour period then you may be required to pay a cancellation fee. We will discuss this on a case-by-case basis.

Will the counsellor or psychotherapist tell me what to do?
No – the role of the counsellor or psychotherapist to facilitate the relationship and to help the client find his/her own answers.

Research carried out by the IACP (Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) has revealed that almost 60% of Irish people believe that it is more acceptable now to talk about their problems than it was in the past. Per the IACP: “This is a very positive shift and means people are now more likely to talk to a counsellor or psychotherapist.”
