Research on therapeutic effectiveness shows that therapy is successful in a high percentage of cases and that many different types of therapy can be effective in reaching more outcomes.
The therapeutic work at Dundalk Counselling Centre is based on a client-centered approach but they have also broadened their range of services to include Systemic Family Therapy, Play Therapy for children, Adolescent Therapy, Couples and Individuals. No one therapeutic approach works for all and this is why they have highly qualified therapists who have a varied theyalth of experience and training in these different approaches.
they provide counselling for all issues, bereavement, sexual abuse, Rape, addiction, relationship issues, eating disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, family issues, anger, low self esteem & low self confidence and many more. Sometimes people feel they have to be in a crisis before they decide to call their centre and that is not the case, counselling is there to offer support to those who may feel lonely, isolated or may need someone to talk to.
