Also, online counselling can be more effective as it is provided in a place that can be more comfortable and more convenient for you

e.g. your own home, office, while walking, in your car, etc!

Most noteworthy, Helplink’s professional, qualified, insured and Garda vetted counsellors are available at times to suit you;

Phenomenal counselling service and offers part time workers/students an amazing discounted rate. Eva is an amazing counsellor. I genuinely do not have words for how good Eva is at her job, and how genuine she is with her clients. I always felt so comfortable to show up as any version of myself to the sessions, and this is the most in control I’ve ever felt with my mental health due to all of her help. Thank you all.

Natalie was kind, empathetic and helped me navigate a difficult time in my life. She was flexible when appointment times had to be changed and was always very organised for our sessions. I can’t thank her enough for her support and work we did together.

Clodagh provided a safe virtual space for me to explore my current feelings and past experiences.
I greatly benefited from her gentle but practical approach and left the sessions feeling listened to, and armed with easy-to-implement exercises that made a big difference in my everyday.
I really value this service and I’m very grateful for the support that Clodagh gave me.
