counselling

We aim to provide counselling support in response to needs that arise for parents and or children across County Meath.  Some of the issues include anxiety, depression, experiences of trauma, bereavement, separation, low feelings of self-worth, experiences of domestic violence.

Some of the therapies offered include Counselling, Psychotherapy, Play Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). We currently provide Play Therapy in Navan, Trim and Laytown and other counselling and psychotherapy in Navan and Trim.  We hire  external counsellors on a case by case basis.

Our counselling service  is funded by two elements; direct client contributions, a grant from the Family Support Agency and money from our Service Level Agreement with Tusla Child and Family Agency. Clients are expected to pay towards each session based on their own income and financial situation.  Each therapy session costs Meath Springboard €60, so the client contribution helps to ensure the limited funding provides for as many children and adults in need as possible.  In the event that funding begins to run low, the service may close to referrals for parent therapy and only remain open to children.

If you would like to find out more about this service please contact the Counselling Service Coordinator Samantha Owens at samantha@springboardnavan.ie or on 0851733889.  The following Referral form can also be completed and forwarded to Samantha
