The aim of Dundalk Counselling Centre is to provide a professional, therapeutic counselling to all the community regardless of their social class, religious persuasion or race and with special emphasis on the socially deprived and disadvantaged, irrespective of their means.
The Centre is staffed by professionally trained counsellors. Our service operates to the highest standards and our counsellors are accredited or are working towards accreditation with the IACP (Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), IAHIP (Irish Association for Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy) & FTA (Family Therapy Association).
Dundalk Counselling Centre was established in January 1982 initially in response to the distress caused by rampant unemployment at the time. Much of this was due to a large influx of refugees from Northern Ireland following the introduction of internment there. People were housed by the local authority but were without any prospects of work and in receipt of minimal social welfare. They were also without support of family and friends who remained in the North. Money lenders moved in to service the financial pressures on people resulting in more stress and worry due to the impossible interest rates demanded. Many people developed depression and anxiety and some were suicidal. This was the background to the development of a counselling service for the area. Find out about us…
