Simply contact me using the details on the 'Appointments' page or call 086 8104934 and we can discuss your reasons for considering therapy and if it would be appropriate for you.
What can I expect at my first session?
At your Initial Consultation, we will discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and your expectations of counselling/psychotherapy.

Session are generally 50 minutes.
How much does a session cost?
Sessions cost €60.00. However I can offer a certain number of reduced rate sessions for clients who are unemployed or students.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on the individual Client. At your Initial Consultation, we can agree on a set number of sessions or leave it open ended.
How often do I need to attend?
It is recommended that you attend weekly for maximum benefit. However, if this is not possible, we can discuss other options e.g. fortnightly etc.
Is therapy totally confidential ? Counselling and psychotherapy is a totally confidential service in almost all situations. However it is important to point out that in certain circumstances ethical and legal obligations must be considered, such as the Child Protection Act protects the rights and welfare of children and minors. This will be discussed in more detail at your Initial Consultation.
What happens if I need to cancel an appointment?
I request that Clients contact me to cancel a session at least 24 hours prior to arranged session. The full fee for the missed appointment is charged if cancelled within 24hours of the appointment.
