A Warm Welcome to Olive Cross Counselling Services

As the name suggests, I offer a safe, professional and confidential counselling service for individuals, couples and families who want help with overcoming a difficult life situation. I see clients in Kildare Medical Centre and also in Rathangan Village (evenings).

Each of us faces a variety of problems within our lives. Sometimes our problems become too much for us to handle and they can affect our happiness, our relationships, our performance at work and even our health. When this occurs, we often need support in resolving them. This is where counselling can help.

Counselling can help you if you:

  • feel depressed, sad, downhearted, hopeless (and don't understand why)
  • experience panic attacks or severe anxiety
  • have intrusive thoughts or experience suicide ideation
  • are feeling stressed due to work, school, family or financial problems
  • have lost someone close to you and feel that you cannot cope
  • are experiencing communication problems with another family member
  • are in the process of ending a relationship or separating
  • are spending more time than you want drinking or gambling
  • or someone close to you is affected by substance abuse

These are just some of the issues that people have when coming for counselling and you may also have other issues of your own.
