Counselling is crucial for an issue that carries in this culture such stigma and secrecy. There can be an intense experience of feelings that are not discussed and a feeling of isolation. Talking to someone in a non-judgemental and confidential can bring a place of acceptance.
Why talk to someone about this issue?
- Feeling of depression
- Feelings of uncertainty
- Withdrawal from relationships
- Suicidal ideas
- Low feelings of Self Worth/Esteem
- Self Image
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 €60 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.
