Group Therapy for Women
: Wednesday 22nd September

This is where a group of approximately 6-8 women meet face to face with a trained Group Therapist.

Through the growth of shared understanding women discover that they are not alone and there is hope and healing.

Outreach Clinics
We continue our out-reach clinics as needs arise, in Castlerea, Elphin, Ballaghadereen, Strokestown and Roscommon.

Through Compassion and Professionalism we offer our services.
We do not want women to have power over men,
but over themselves.
