How much does Psychotherapy cost?

Sessions last for one hour and cost €60. 

We have a number of Lower Cost appointments available each week for those who need it. 

Do I have to come each week?

It is always best to come weekly, to build up pace with the work. 

Of course if this doesn't suit you, that is no problem.  We can work that out together. You can let your Therapist know what's best for you.

How long will it take until I feel better? 

How long you come for ultimately depends on you. I think 6-8 weeks can be a great start. After that you can keep coming if you have more work to do.  

I am embarrassed about coming for Counselling. 

While The Phoenix Centre is on Main Street, the entrance is shared with many other business's.  Also once you come in, privacy and respect are crucial to us. There is a waiting area for you to relax in while you wait for your appointment time. We also offer evening appointments, which may suit someone who wants to come when the Town is quieter.

How could you relate to what I am going through?

We will listen to you. We will work at understanding you and really seeing what it is like to be you. To feel what you have felt and to share how life is for you. 

How on earth can 'talking' help me?

It is amazing how simply talking can relieve so much pressure. I am sure you have heard it before! Talking really helps. For most, talking about our feelings and thoughts with a Therapist can be the first time we have ever opened up. It takes incredible courage.
