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


Because of the changed circumstances recently in reaction to the COVID 19 virus we are now offering an online counselling service. All you have to do is enter your name and phone number under the counsellor you wish to connect with and they will get back to you with an appointment. We are using encrypted end to end web technology to ensure confidentiality and security.

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 qualified counsellors and 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 Landline: 01-868 5761 or on mobile: 086-308 1476 or e-mail us at info@travellercounselling.ie

    “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.”
