Book Sessions (please read in full before making an initial appointment)
I offer both online and in-person psychotherapy services. The in-person sessions take place in TráBeo, Tramore, Co. Waterford and the online sessions via Zoom.
I strongly recommend a commitment to a minimum of 6 sessions, followed by a mutual review and discussion on the need to proceed or not, as the case may be. Research shows that a minimum of 6 therapy sessions are an optimum number for therapy to be in any way beneficial. As well as academic research to back this up, my years of professional experience show this to be the case also. Although therapy can be expensive, it's best to view it as an investment in your future self.
When you click on one of the links below, you can reserve an available time and date that suits you. If you wish, you can also avail of a 15% discounted offer by pre-paying for a bundle of six sessions (which is the recommended minimum number of sessions for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to be in any way effective). If you choose the six-session bundle, then you pick the date and time for the initial session. Subsequent meeting times are mutually agreed upon between us.
If you have private health insurance, you should inquire directly with your individual health insurance provider to check if they offer any coverage for your particular plan. Income tax relief on counselling and psychotherapy fees of up to 20% annually can be available to individuals, including PAYE employees, the self-employed and those with other sources of taxable income. Receipts are available upon request.
As I operate a private practice and am self-employed, please understand that I need to operate a cancellation policy. Of course, sometimes sudden emergencies happen that may make it necessary for you to cancel your appointment at very short notice, or fail to attend and are unable to provide notification. In general, however, the following cancellation policy applies: cancellations made up to 48 hours before a scheduled appointment (via email to donagh@waterfordcounselling or WhatsApp to 087 7507313) will not incur a charge and I will contact you with rescheduling options. Cancellations made 48 hours or less before a scheduled appointment will be subject to my full fee.
