The BCP counselling service offers a confidential space where a trained therapist listens to you and helps you. Counselling involves a maximum of 6 one hour sessions to take place on Thursday or Friday mornings in BCP Offices, 4 Drumfinn Park. Ballyfermot. There is no charge to attend the counselling service. You can request a referral to counselling from your key worker (if you are already registered with BCP) or by dropping in to our offices to register. If after your 6 sessions you would like to continue with counselling our service can refer you to a low cost counselling service in the community.
