Iron Mill Counselling Service - Further Information

What is counselling?

Counselling is a process of creating a confidential space where people can begin to heal with the help of their counsellor. Counselling is concerned with the whole person and gives you time to talk about feelings thoughts and concerns. The counsellor provides a safe, confidential service which is non-judgmental.

Our counsellors can help support you with a variety of issues, including:

  • Self-esteem issues.
  • Relationship difficulties.
  • Loss, bereavement and separation issues.
  • Depression.
  • Issues regarding family life.
  • Workplace or educational difficulties.
  • Emotional problems related to physical health issues.
  • Life stage issues and transitions such as becoming a parent.
  • Anxiety and stress.
  • Understanding ways of coping with reference to past experiences.

What to expect:

You can expect to be provided with a non-judgmental approach by a respectful, open and genuine person. Your counsellor will not give advice, direction or solutions to problems or issuues but they will help you gain insight and new perspectives. Each session lasts 50 minutes and you will meet with your counsellor on a weekly basis. You may terminate therapy at any time. We have male and female counsellors and a choice of weekday and evening appointments.


Your sessions with your counsellor are confidential. However, counsellors are obligated to break confidentiality if you disclose that you intend to harm yourself or another person or if you reveal current abuse of a minor.

"I have never been in such a creative, free, wonderful environment to learn. The mix of students is just buzzing. I have felt it such a privilege to have been allowed to be present.

Our tutor was such a delight....and I hope she continues teaching in her wonderfully human, but knowledgeable way."
