Counselling Services

For the past 3 years LINC has financed low cost counselling for those within our community who require it.  While we continuously seek to source funding to continue this important service financial constraints have forced us to re-evaluate the way the service is delivered at present.  In order to monitor and maintain the service we publish a list of counsellors on our website.  We ask that community members when accessing counselling chose from this list (see below).  We also ask that the community member contributes €10 to the cost of the session and LINC will fund the remainder.  There are provisions through LINC for 6 sessions.
We are also looking at ways that we can make this service more affordable and sustainable.  To this end, over the coming months we hope to recruit counsellors who are qualified but are still in the process of building up their accreditation contact hours.

List of Counsellors:
Martin Grogan, Midelton 087-1247123
Oaktree, Cork City 087-7565490
