Psychotherapy Psychoanalysis Counselling

There are times when we need to talk to someone whom we can rely on to help. Sometimes it can be difficult for those who are close to us to be able to provide this. Perhaps you are feeling down, unhappy or depressed, feel alone or isolated, stressed, worried or anxious.

You think no-one understands you and that there is no-one to turn to. Our team at Dublin Analytic Practice will accompany you in exploring what troubles you, leading towards an understanding of your problems and giving you a place to work through them.

We offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space with one of our psychotherapists/counsellors to provide an opportunity for both understanding and change.

Perhaps you have already made the decision to speak or may still be unsure if it’s for you.  You can call us  to talk further about this first step, a step which sometimes may feel difficult to make.  Perhaps this first step is for yourself as an adult, or as a couple, for an adolescent or child.

None of us are exempt from experiencing times of crisis, difficult change or bereavement and loss and it is at these moments that we need therapy to work through it.

Dublin Analytic Practice provides a safe and confidential space where you can come to speak to experienced and highly qualified professional therapists, all of which have in excess of 10 years’ clinical experience.

Do I really need to see a therapist/counsellor?

I don’t feel bad enough or as bad as others feel
As long as you’re unhappy / feel the need to talk, that’s the only reason you need.

What should I expect?

A treatment tailored to each person in their uniqueness that offers a safe and comfortable space to talk about your concerns / particular suffering, allowing for the possibilities of change.

How often do I come?

Initially you will meet with your therapists to discuss your issues, concerns or worries. You can expect your appointment to be weekly, however this will be discussed and agreed upon, as each treatment is tailored to you as an individual.
