Adult Counselling / Psychotherapy

Adult Counselling / Psychotherapy

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

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. 

“After every session I’ve come away feeling a bit more positive and hopeful.”

Aisling Centre offers a safe and welcoming space where those who need to, can talk and explore the suffering they live with, without fear of judgment, in an environment of respect and acceptance of them as they are. 

For people who come here either because they have found the courage to seek help or as is sometimes the case, out of desperation for help, it has often been described as a journey that is both difficult and rewarding. 

It is difficult because we don’t avoid the pain or wish it away but in the safety of a therapeutic relationship, we accept it and work to understand it. It is rewarding because when done in the right environment healing and change become possible.

Aisling Centre offers the following through its Counselling / Psychotherapy service:

  • General/Personal Counselling and Psychotherapy service
  • Therapeutic Service for Survivors of Childhood Abuse
  • Therapeutic Service for Victims/Survivors of the Troubles
  • Counselling for adults living in the Enniskillen NRA area
  • Early intervention counselling/psychotherapy service in partnership with GP Practices throughout the County
  • Outreach service in partnership with GP Practices

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-judgmental 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 trained 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”

At 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.

“I felt I could talk and tell my counsellor anything I did or thought, things I wouldn’t say to my family”

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.

“With my counsellor’s help I can now cope with my problem. It has made my life much better”

Drop into reception at the Centre, telephone, email or visit our website. All queries will be answered promptly and you will be invited to fill in a simple counselling request form. Sometimes your GP or other professional will suggest counselling to you and they can make a referral, with your permission, on your behalf.

Once we receive your request for counselling we will write to you.

Appointments are offered as quickly as possible but there may be a waiting list at busy times.

“From dreading each day I now look forward to the future”

You will be given an initial appointment where you will meet with a counsellor and have an opportunity to find out more about the counselling process.

Together you will agree if counselling is the best option for you at this time. If not, we will work with you to help identify more appropriate support.

We will ask you some questions as part of the assessment process including for brief details of your concerns and problems. If we agree that counselling is appropriate, we will identify days and times that will suit you to attend on a weekly basis. During this appointment or soon after, you will be allocated a counsellor (who may or may not be the assessing counsellor), for ongoing sessions.

Counselling sessions are normally once a week (on the same day and time) for an agreed number of weeks.
