Our Services

Who can we help?

At certain times in our lives, we all encounter difficulties or challenges. Friends or Family can be a great support but occasionally we may need someone with more skill to talk to. Counselling can be helpful when dealing with life's twists and turns. At other times we may simply want an opportunity to explore who we are and what gives meaning to our lives.


What is counselling/psychotherapy?

Counselling provides a supportive, safe environment that enables you to make the changes you want in your life. Counselling is an opportunity to explore your problems in a confidential, caring environment and discover your own solutions.

How long will I need to attend? 

Clients will usually attend weekly. This session lasts for 50 minutes and is normally arranged for the same time each week. Depending on the nature of the issue or problem you wish to address, we offer short term (6-8wks) or longer term counselling. This decision is for you to make.

How much will it cost?

Aegis Counselling offers an affordable service. Fees are €60 per session. Cancellations require 24hr notice. However where financial circumstances are problematic this fee can be negotiated with your counsellor.
