The price of therapy is a significant barrier to access and can influence clients ending prematurely.

At Talk Therapy Dublin we have a number of options for clients and our aim is to find every enquiry a solution that works for them.

  • Prices start at €50 (for clients out of work or facing difficult personal circumstances)
  • The above pricing is still quite high for some client’s situations so we operate a low cost counselling service subject to therapist availability & initial assessment. If you are interested in enquiring about this service please make contact.
  • We also have links to other community & low cost counselling services as well as private practices so please do enquire and we will make sure to find you a solution that works.
  • Payment methods include, Cash, Bank Transfer or Debit/Credit card – receipts available on request.
