Family Therapy

Families are the core of Adlerian psychotherapy. At times I would see an entire family process of therapy progress quickly.

When I see families it generally means on bringing a sense of rights, responsibly, equality and democracy to a family. In families some stars are brighter some are dimmer and some are outside. The process of therapy is to bring understanding and agreement back to the family relationships. To consciously look at what makes their family what it is and make improvements.

‘Sometimes the people who need the most love are the ones who are most pushed away’.

Under certain circumstances some health insurers cover counselling. Counselling does not go on forever but how long the sessions continue is completely determined by each person. Each person is unique and must be treated this way, it is why counselling works, and it is not a quick fix. It involves finding your unique path to a better way of living. My fee is €70 per session.

My clients come from all over the region including Dungarvan, Waterford City, Kilmeaden, Tipperary, Clonmel, Youghal, Lismore, Cappoquin, Tallow, New Ross, Mallow and Fermoy. If you are experiencing difficulties in these areas and you would like to talk about them in a safe and non judgemental way please contact Michael Fitzgerald at the Dungarvan Counselling Centre.
