West Cork Counselling and Support Services

Our Mission

We are a community based service that works to provide affordable and accessible counselling across the West Cork area.

Broad community representation on our Board of Management along with support from statutory and voluntary bodies and the commitment of a highly trained and experienced staff help ensure that resources are used in the best possible way to optimise service delivery.

Our aim is to provide a counselling service that reflects the highest ethical and professional standards. Our ethos is underpinned by a commitment to the provision of an un-biased, non-judgemental and confidential service.

WCCSS strives to adapt to an ever changing environment, to be responsive to the needs of its service users and to be accountable and transparent in all its dealings.

We provide:

  • Low cost ‘Life Event Counselling’ to individuals over the age of eighteen residing in West Cork.
  • Free 3-Option ‘Crisis Pregnancy Counselling’ supporting anyone affected by an unplanned or crisis pregnancy.
  • Free ‘Abortion Aftercare Counselling’ to anyone wishing to seek support following the termination of a pregnancy.
  • Information on existing support groups and services, including voluntary and statutory organisations.

We endeavour to provide an experience that is meaningful, and compassionate in nature in an environment that is person-centred, respectful and nurturing.

We are committed to achieving equality of experience and respect for all individuals.
