Fingal Counselling Service is a non-profit organisation currently funded through grants and client donations. Since its formation in 1995, Fingal Counselling Service has continuously adapted to meet the needs of our community.
We believe that we have a range of qualities that enable us to deliver this service. Because we are located in the community, it is easier for local people to use our service. Not only is Fingal Counselling Service accessible geographically, being located in Swords, more importantly we offer a different kind of ‘ closeness’ as clients see us as less formal and intimidating than the setting of a hospital or other statutory service.
Fingal Counselling Service is a multifaceted service. We provide counselling on a wide range of issues to adults and Teens aged between 16 and 18 years of age. We do not provide addiction counselling, we refer clients presenting with addiction issues to a suitable agency. As a community based organisation we are best placed to respond to the needs of our community.
Our highly skilled counsellors provide a minimum of 60 hours each year on a voluntary basis, adhering to the IACP’s code of ethics and practice for counsellors. In addition to attending in house training, they also engage in continuous professional development. On an organisational level we constantly review our governance and do all possible to ensure that best practice is observed in all aspects of our work.
