People usually choose to have therapy because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives. Sometimes people can feel isolated even where an individual has supportive family and friends and they can find it difficult to explain why, for example they may be feeling anxious or depressed. Or it may be easier to talk about personal family or relationship issues with a person who is independent of friends and family. There are many life issues which can be difficult to deal with – bereavement, divorce, health issues, bullying, redundancy, ongoing stress. However, you do not have to be in crisis, or on the verge of one, before choosing therapeutic help. You may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with life in general or be seeking balance or meaning in your life. All of these reasons and more will bring people into therapy.
In counselling or psychotherapy, you work closely with a qualified therapist who is either a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist, to enable you to explore thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that affect your life negatively. Through counselling and psychotherapy you are given the support and safety to explore and understand these thoughts, beliefs and behaviours in the strictest confidence.
The personal growth that can then take place can free you from the limitations of old patterns. This can allow more realistic and effective ways of improving the quality, contentment and satisfaction of your life to emerge.
You can benefit from counselling and psychotherapy at any stage in your life. However, it is more usual that you are likely to consider counselling when you are seeking to deal with changes, events or transitions in your life, or when you are facing a personal crisis
It is very important that you choose a therapist who is fully qualified, fully accredited (to practitioner level) and is experienced, especially in the area that concerns your personal issue. In FTC, every therapist is interviewed, has professional indemnity insurance and are Garda vetted. Our therapists have – Full qualifications, to Degree level (or to Masers level) – Full accreditation with a recognised and reputable professional organisation with its own code of ethics and practice. We also have Senior Trainee Therapist who have a) qualified but are working towards accreditation or are in their final year in training. They provide a low cost service to those who cannot afford therapy
ach session will be about 50 minutes. A family therapy session can be from 60 -90 minutes depending on the number of family members in the session.
How long you may have to continue attending depends on many factors ie: the nature and depth of the issue which brings you to therapy, the type of outcome you desire, your own willingness and motivation to change etc. In other words, each client’s situation is unique.
During your first session you can discuss this and you can either leave it open-ended or decide to fix on a number of sessions. Often it is agreed to work together for about 6 sessions and then review whether to continue further.
Appointment times are available from 8am to 9pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday (depending on a therapist’s availability).
At Fairview Therapy Centre we believe that therapy should be an option for everyone regardless of their financial means.
Therefore we offer a low cost service where clients can avail of a therapist who is either in training, or who has just finished their training and is working towards their accreditation of one of the professional bodies (IACP, IAHIP,ICP or equivalent). The fee charged in this instance is €25.

Your appointment is your time and space to speak to your therapist. In the event of the need to cancel a session you are requested to give 24 hours notice. If you are unable to cancel with less than the agreed period of notice you will be asked to pay a cancellation fee for the missed session which will be agreed upon with your therapist at your first session. Your therapist will give you detailed information about cancellation arrangements in your first session.
Fees vary depending on the type of therapy you are attending for. This is negotiated with your therapist at the first session. The fee is due at the end of each session and is payable directly to the therapist. Receipts for payment of fees can be requested from the individual therapist. The therapist will give at least one month’s notice of any change in the fee.
