Counselling kildare

Psychotherapy provides counselling, emotional support and professional help to men and women for past and present issues which may be effecting them. We all experience challenged and difficulty at various times in our life. During these times it can help to seek the support of a professional Psychotherapist who provides non-judgmental and confidential therapeutic support.

Counselling is a therapeutic talk therapy process suitable for many adults and young adults. The type of psychotherapy approach can depends on each unique client and their presenting problems. There are different types of therapeutic approaches which can be used such as holistic counselling, person centered counselling, addiction counselling, CBT and solution focused counselling. Unconditional positive regard and confidentiality are core to the counselling relationship. Many therapists will specialise in specific areas and specific approaches. Therapy may be short or longer term depending on each clients presenting issues.  There is a misconception that counselling is a miracle cure for problems, this is incorrect. Counselling is a therapeutic process which individual’s engage in over a period of time. Clients are often encouraged to make behavioral and lifestyle changes and consider additional supports and resources. Counselling sessions are attended regularly, weekly or bi-weekly for a period of time or as long as necessary.
