National Online Counselling Services
Online counselling works the same as traditional face-to-face counselling, the only difference is that appointments happen through your computer, tablet or smart phone.
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;
7 days a week and out-of-hours.

Eva is a wonderful online counsellor and I'm so glad that she was my counsellor, she totally understood me from the start and listened to me and most importantly heard me, I was going through a very difficult time in my life and was in a very emotional painful place, at the time I sought counselling, I feel Eva helped me understand myself and helped me to see the bigger picture and its been very worthwhile for my mental and emotional well being
Natalie was excellent. Always easy to talk with, kind, encouraging and gave great advice and helpful worksheets. I’d like to think I’d go back to her again if ever I need to.
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.
FINAL NOTE: We do not provide a crisis service. People seriously contemplating suicide or in need of immediate help should go to their local A&E. Dial 999 for assistance.
