Longford Counselling

Why counselling?

When facing problems and difficulties, it can be very useful to talk to someone outside your circle of friends, family, and colleagues. Usually, people seek help from a trained and experienced counsellor. Here in Longford, I provide professional and affordable counselling.

Whether you are an individual or a couple, counselling provides a safe, calm place, where you can talk about your problems, and where you will feel listened to and understood. If you are a couple, each person will have a chance to talk without interruption.

Newly added: Counselling for... Anxiety, Pre-marriage, Alcohol problems, and Expats.

Whatever your problem is, please call 085 114 5649 today, for a brief consultation and to make an appointment. Click here for full contact details.

If you're undecided or nervous about calling, then CALL ME anyway! I am very happy to just chat to help you see if counselling is the right thing for you. I will not push you to make an appointment. You can take your time and think about it. However, research shows that people often begin to feel better simply BECAUSE they have made an appointment.


In our first session, I will introduce myself, and my qualifications and experience. I will then explain confidentiality. After that, you can tell me what brings you along for counselling. There is no need to get it 'right' or 'perfect'. Most people take a while to organize their thoughts and get 'settled in'. During the session I will help you make sense of your situation, and work with you to find the best way forward for you. I will not judge you or tell you what to do. I might give advice, based on my training and experience, if I think it will be useful to you. At the end of the session, I will ask you how it went for you, and ask if you want to book another session. You can decide about that later if you like.

INDIVIDUALS come to see me for a variety of reasons, including anxiety, depression, recovery from relationship breakups, adjustment to major life changes - indeed, anything which is causing distress.
COUPLES usually come to see me because of arguing, recovery from an affair, or pre-marital counselling.
Whether you come as a couple or as an individual, my aim is to help you start feeling better, as soon as possible. I am trained and qualified in both couple counselling, and counselling individuals.
