"I feel better in myself
after talking to the counsellor"



The Traveller Counselling Service was launched in February 2008, initially as a one year pilot project which since has developed into a community based counselling service for the Traveller community.

The service works from a culturally inclusive framework which respects Traveller culture, identity, values and norms and works from a perspective of culture centred counselling and psychotherapy.

We are a team of six accredited psychotherapists and a manager who is also a psychotherapist and supervisor.

The Traveller Counselling Service is an independent organisation with registered charitable status and has a board of directors which is made up of members of both the Traveller community and the majority community.

If you would like to get in touch in confidence, please ring 086-308 1476 or e-mail us at info@travellercounselling.ie.


“I have been seeing the counselor for a good while now and I feel a lot better in myself every time I see her. I’m going to keep at it, my family have noticed I’m better in myself.”

    “As manager of the organisation, I have seen the impact since the local counselling service was set up some years now. The taboo that Travellers always had in relation to counselling is no longer there.”

    “Our clients have said that they do feel the benefit of using the service for a number of reasons. Before they did not understand counselling or what it was for, and to be able to talk to someone about their problems and issues, whether it be drug related or not, in a "safe and confidential environment" is key.”
