Counselling can often bring clarity, peace of mind and the answers to the problems that you are struggling with.

Exploring your thoughts with a professional, non-judgmental person can make you feel less alone and more able to sort out your thoughts in a productive way.

Our counselling service operates in strict confidence.  

Social prescribing, sometimes referred to as community referral, is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. Recognising that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health. Through our social prescribing programme we host a community coffee morning which is held on the last Friday of every month at Moville Library. 10-am-12noon. All welcome.

There is emerging evidence that social prescribing can lead to a range of positive health and well-being outcomes. Studies have pointed to improvements in areas such as quality of life and emotional wellbeing, mental and general wellbeing, and levels of depression and anxiety. Social prescribing also includes community education courses such as cookery course and Health & Wellbeing sessions. (Involving talks on depression, anxiety, CBT, and cooking nutrition).

Many of our problems can become clearer when we put one foot in front of the other. Walking in a group magnifies the power of this therapy. Walks are suitable for all abilities and provides an opportunity to meet other people with similar life experiences and walk in the fresh air. 

Our Ladies Walk and Talk every takes places Tuesday morn from 10.30 to 12.30 @ MFRC. €3 per session. refreshments provided.

All Ladies Welcome.
