What is Counselling?

Counselling aims to help you explore and clarify problems and issues that matter to you. It may help you develop resources and skills to cope with difficulties. It could also help you to get through a distressing time in your life.

We, the counsellors, listen to what you are really saying, accepting and understanding where you are at and respecting your feelings. We will not tell you what to do, but we can help you to come to your own decisions. Counselling is not only about problems, it also offers opportunities to get to know yourself better and to develop as a person.

What we do

We offer professional assistance to people who are troubled – whether in their personal life or at work. Our team of  counsellors/psychotherapists offer a range of approaches to suit your individual needs. The aim of talking with a counsellor is to help you make sense of what is going on in your life. Take your first step to that help today and find a suitable counsellor, contact us now.

What is the difference between Counselling, Psychotherapy and Therapy?

Counselling tends to associate with more short term and focused work, and Psychotherapy explores issues in greater depth and requires more commitment to longer term work. It aims to reach the underlying, often unconscious, causes of distress. Therapy is a word that covers both Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Think of your mind like a ball of wool — a  tangled and really knotted ball of wool. These are your thoughts, your memories, your ways of coping with the world and includes your feelings. If you took that knotted ball of wool and tried to make something worthwhile out of it, you may come to an sudden stop fairly fast. But what if someone comes long and helps you to unravel this ball of wool, and all that that entails?

The root of our depression etc can often be so personal and deep. So delicate that we often cannot see things clearly enough in our heads to unravel our thoughts, memories and feelings.

Psychotherapy offers someone who can gently guide you and ask the right questions in order to help you make sense of it all.

Don’t forget, we go to school to learn how to write, add up and identify parts of the body – but we are not taught how to cope with our thoughts and feelings.

Relationship/Couples/Marriage Counselling Dublin

Relationship’s and families as we’ve known them seem to be falling apart at a rapid rate, inevitably this leads to feelings of hurt and anger. It often puts into question our ability to trust again and experience feelings of loneliness, rejection and loss.

Relationships with our children can be tense and this can result in feelings of guilt, anger and sadness. In order to understand our own relationship difficulties we first need to take the courageous step of developing a more intimate relationship with ourselves.

The first and most influential experience of personal relationships was when we were children. If our relationship with our parents were difficult, or we observed lack of communication, fighting and tension between our parents this may influence our relationships as adults. If we experienced rejection, hurt and losses as a child we may be unconsciously repeating these patterns as adults or avoid intimate relationships in order to protect from anticipated rejections.

It may be that you are questioning why you are always choosing the wrong person and end up hurt and seem to be unable to stop repeating this pattern. Maybe you are a person who does the rejecting, however feels lonely and desires closeness.

How counselling can help

Counselling can help you to explore and develop a more intimate relationship with yourself. It can help unravel what is stopping you from getting close and in this process you can begin to develop new ways of being with others.
