Let’s Get Talking Counselling and Psychotherapy open a new branch to support the demand for access to mental health services in the Southeast.
First opening in Galway 2012, Let’s Get Talking aims to provide access to professional mental health services to the community on a non-set fee. The non-set fee model positions the organisation to straddle public provision and private enterprise in a way that makes service delivery more affordable to the public and to enhance public resources.
Speaking about the charity CEO Cyril Hyland said: “In Let’s Get Talking, we believe everyone has a right to access therapy no matter what. Each client of our service is treated according to their needs and not what they can afford to pay.”
With a focus on early intervention Let’s Get Talking support adults and children in relation to a wide range of issues ranging from depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, addiction, trauma, bullying, eating disorders, parenting issues, and family breakdown support.
Speaking on the opening of the Wexford Branch, Cyril added “We are very excited to have chosen Enniscorthy for our new centre to serve the community of the Southeast. It is a strongly held belief in Let’s Get Talking that the wellness of the community can be measured by people’s psychological health. To this end, therapy is a major contributor to this mission”.
Officially opening the centre, Minister for Mental Health and Older People, Mary Butler said: “The opening of this centre in Enniscorthy is a crucial step towards achieving our shared objectives of ensuring everyone with mental health difficulties receives the appropriate care and support they require. I am a huge proponent of Let’s Get Talking, which supports people with mental health difficulties in their local communities, with a strong emphasis on mental health promotion, early intervention, and recovery. I am confident this centre will have a positive impact on the local community in Wexford for many years to come.’’
Let’s Get Talking’s Wexford Branch will be led by local Wexford psychotherapist Ellie McLoughlin, “I am delighted to bring this accessible service to our community here in the Southeast. I’m extremely passionate about the benefits of therapy, for people struggling with their mental health, and we look forward to collaborating with other community organisations locally” Ellie added.
In 2021, Let’s Get Talking provided 14,504 counselling and psychotherapy sessions to Children, Adolescents, Adults and Couples in Ireland.
Clients can contact the service without a referral or through their GP – there is no limit to the number of sessions provide to clients.
