FirstLight: Psychotherapists / Counsellors


FirstLight Expanding Counsellors Register

Demand for FirstLight’s services in 2021 was the highest since the organisation was established 45 years ago, with 207 families supported nationwide. We are predicting a similar, if not higher, number in 2022.

For this reason, we are looking to expand the number of psychotherapists on the FirstLight Counsellors Register across the following counties:

  • Mayo
  • Carlow
  • Kilkenny
  • Westmeath
  • Athlone
  • Donegal
  • Kerry
  • Meath
  • Cork
  • Galway
  • Offaly
  • Cavan
  • Monaghan
  • North Dublin
  • Louth
  • Wicklow
  • Leitrim

All Psychotherapists on the Counsellors Register must be professionally accredited, fully insured, and Garda vetted before commencing counselling for our service.
