Psychotherapy & Counselling

by Carmel Farnan Counselling Centre…

“It’s good to talk” a popular advertising slogan proclaims.  And it is true that many times the only way to resolve an issue that we wrestle with in our minds is to be able to talk it out.

But who should we talk to? Sometimes it is difficult to know who to confide in, as the people closest to you may be involved in the problem. Or many times well-meaning family or friends may be unable to provide impartial or unbiased advice. Indeed they may be too close to the problem to be of genuine help.

Instead, you need someone impartial and professional to speak with, someone who has the training and experience to help you discover real-life solutions for real-life problems. You also want to speak with someone who will not judge you, but who will understand what you are going through — someone who opens the doors for communication.

Carmel Farnan Counselling Centre has a team of qualified Psychotherapists, Counsellors and Life coaches. Since 2001 this centre has an established reputation for Counselling in Dublin. The psychotherapists provide a caring, professional counselling service. For this purpose they use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Humanistic & Person Centred Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques and Positive Psychology.  (See testimonials at end of this page)

“Going to Carmel has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Although relationship problems prompted my first visit, I have gone on to meet with her on issues that have affected me for over 30 years. I have made progress in areas of my life I felt I could never resolve. I feel much happier in myself and hopeful for the future. I now understand it is “normal” to occasionally feel swamped by difficult emotions but that they can be dealt with when you have the right help.”

From C. in Lusk, North County Dublin. 


 “I was referred to Carmel by my GP who was treating me for stress and depression. Being a man I find it very difficult to communicate about feelings – especially to a stranger! But I was amazed at how quickly Carmel put me at ease and helped me to tease out what was at the root of my low mood.”

From M. in Donabate, North County Dublin


 “I often refer patients to Carmel Farnan and everyone I’ve sent to her has come back to me with a good report. She seems to have an amazing rapport across a wide range of ages and experiences. People really like her, find her easy to talk to and make real progress on their problems.”
