What is a Counselling Psychologist?

Counselling Psychologists work in a wide variety of settings to help people with physical, emotional and mental health concerns, improve their sense of well-being, alleviate feelings of distress and resolve crises. They also provide assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of more severe psychological symptoms. Interventions used by Counselling Psychologists can be brief or more long-term and are focused on individual differences. At South Dublin Counselling & Psychological Services our Counselling Psychologists are registered with the Psychological Society of Ireland.

Our values are:

  • To draw on your strengths and engage with your perspective, values and beliefs empathically (whether being seen as individuals, couples, families, groups or organizations).
  • To empathically know you as valid on your terms; to elucidate, interpret and negotiate between perceptions and world views, environmental and situational influences (how cultural, gender, career and lifestyle issues shape experiences and concerns).
  • To be practice led with a research base grounded in empiricism while valuing professional artistry. We engage in evidence-based intervention in our practice
  • To recognize social contexts and discrimination and to work in ways that empower. To address issues of diversity and social justice (e.g., advocacy) and a hold high standard of anti-discriminatory practice appropriate to the pluralistic nature of society today. 

Our services are confidential. This means that the therapeutic relationship takes place in the therapy room and your engagement with the service as well as your personal information will not be shared outside of this space. Any limit to confidentiality will be clarified in your initial appointment prior to engaging.
