Blanchardstown Community Counselling Service - What is Counselling?


What is counselling?
At some point in a life we all experience challenges which can be both difficult and overwhelming. Workplace causing stress, anxiety over uncertainties of the future, bereavement, problems with addiction, relationship difficulties or even just the feeling of helplessness.

These are just some of the issues we face in life in which counselling can help where you get to talk to a professional counsellor or therapist. At Blanchardstown Community Counselling Service we provide confidential and professional help by working with you and the difficulties you face.

What can the ‘client’ expect from Counselling?
The individual can expect to talk to a trained professional about the issues that are affecting the individual. Every individual is affected in some way by their surroundings and environment and a counsellor is trained to appreciate that individuality. The counsellor in helping the individual work with them on their issues, can become a rewarding experience, full of personal growth and understanding.

Going to a Counsellor / Psychotherapist:

A client’s first contact with a Counsellor / Psychotherapist will usually be by telephone to arrange an appointment. At the initial appointment the following is normally agreed:

  • The Client’s situation / issues
  • The frequency of therapy
  • The duration of therapy
  • Confidentiality
  • Therapy Fees

You don’t have to cope alone.
