Counselling and Psychotherapy Services

 

When you need someone to talk to …..  We are here to listen


What is counselling/psychotherapy?

The aim of counselling/psychotherapy is to help you talk about and explore the worries/troubles that are causing you pain or distress or making you feel uncomfortable, upset or sad.   

Counselling offers a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where you can speak about your life and those things that may be confusing, uncomfortable or painful.  Talking about your concerns with a professionally person can help you make sense of how you are feeling.    

The therapist is there to support you and will respect your views.  They will not usually give advice, problem solve or tell you what to do but they will work with you to help you find solutions to your problems or to find new ways of coping.

 

"I was very apprehensive when starting... but found immediately myself at ease and good that I was dealing with my problems"



What does Aisling Centre offer?

At the Aisling Centre, we have a qualified, experienced team of therapists. They are dedicated to supporting you wherever you find yourself on life’s journey.  

In a safe and welcoming space, you can speak freely and in confidence about your difficulties over a period of weekly one hour sessions. Sharing your worries and fears with someone you can trust who is there to listen to you, in a non-judgemental way, can be a great relief and can give hope for the future.

Would counselling/psychotherapy help me?

All of us hit difficult patches in our lives at some time.  When we get overwhelmed and find the going tough, it can really help to talk to someone.   

Sometimes our problems can arise from family stresses; relationship difficulties; bereavement; work situations; childhood issues; sexual/physical/emotional abuse; violence in the home; issues relating to the Troubles; panic attacks; anxiety; depression; suicidal thoughts; addiction; low self-esteem or lack of confidence. 

Any of these and indeed anything that is troubling you may be helped by talking to a qualified therapist.

What happens next?

First you will be given an appointment for an initial interview.  Here you will meet with a counsellor where you will have an opportunity to discuss your needs and problems - to talk about what it is that has brought you to the Aisling Centre.

During this interview the counsellor will help you decide if counselling at the Aisling Centre is the best option for you at this time.  If not, we will work with you to find more appropriate support.

If we agree that counselling is appropriate, and may benefit you, the counsellor will arrange a regular meeting time that suits you.  Counselling sessions are normally once a week for an agreed number of weeks.
