Supporting families, children and individuals in the Inner City.
What is Counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained and accredited therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Sessions are offered on a donation basis.  No person will be denied counselling because of lack of finances. Contact us to talk confidentially and/or to make an appointment. Call: 01 4736491 or Email :admin@familycentre.ie

What to expect from counselling

At your appointment you’ll be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with an accredited therapist, who’ll listen and support you in a non – judgemental manner. The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, and find your own solutions to problems.

Our Services
Individual Therapy

Counselling can help you cope with:

  • a mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder
  • an upsetting physical health condition
  • a difficult life event, such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress
  • difficult emotions – for example, low self-esteem or anger
  • other issues, such as sexual identity
Family Therapy

It enables family members, couples and others who care about each other to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives. Individuals can find Family Therapy helpful, as an opportunity to reflect on important relationships and find ways forward.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a form of counselling or psychotherapy that uses play to assess, prevent, or treat psychosocial challenges. Although play therapy can be used with adults, it’s most commonly used with children.  From the outside, play therapy looks like it’s just about having fun with toys. However, play therapy is effective in treating a variety of emotional and behavioural issues.
