The Centre is open for business.
We will remain open during restrictions as mental health is an essential service
Under HSE guidelines for public health, we have introduced some safety measures for everyone’s benefit so our process is slightly different than before. You can find out more about these here or when making an appointment.
We look forward to welcoming existing and new clients to the Centre, but online therapy sessions are still available for those who wish to avail of that service.
We believe in treating the whole person and so offer a range of therapeutic services individually tailored to our clients needs. On our website you can find information on the mental health services and complimentary therapies we offer for children, adolescents, students and adults.
Owen is a warm, compassionate listener who displayed great insight and knowledge in our sessions. Because he took the time to understand and accept me, I was able to take on board the things he said that challenged me. He helped me to gain a different perspective on my problems. I have recommended him to several friends experiencing difficulties.

We felt compelled to write to you to thank you for saving our marriage. We were in such a difficult place when we first came to you. Of all of the marriage counsellors we have seen over the years nobody compares to you. Over the time we attended therapy our marriage went from strength to strength and it is all because of you. You helped us to see things from each-others perspective and to learn to love and respect each-other again. While at times therapy was tough you also brought fun back into our lives and into our marriage. We both want to say a massive thank you. Because of your help, support and encouragement we can now see a long and bright future together. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will never forget you Sharron.

My son is going to the Connolly Counselling Centre to see Owen. I couldn't rate it highly enough. My son loves talking to Owen and feels so much happier and confident. He skips out of there and feels like he can do anything. I am so grateful.

Dear Sharron, This little email is sending you a massive ‘Thank You’ for all of your help over the last few months. You have just been fantastic to myself and my daughter. I truly believe that we were meant to meet you at the time we did because if we hadn’t, who knows where we’d be right now, instead of where we are. You have quite literally saved my daughter's life. I can’t thank you enough.

All the things I worried about in the past are now all just bad memories. Everything has changed now and I’m much more relaxed. I am so proud of myself. It has helped me so much in life and everyone around me too. Owen has helped me so much and anything I do will never be enough to thank him.

I'm so proud to know this wonderful man, and call him a friend. Owen has saved my life (literally) many times in the past. He is one of the best people I know and an outstanding therapist. I've sent many of my own clients to him over the years and every one of them has found him as beneficial as I have.

Sharron, if there was an award for psychologists and psychotherapists who go above and beyond, you'd win every year hands down. I hope that you are in the best of health and happiness; you deserve no less. I am continuing to do well since we finished up therapy. Thank you very much for your email, it's so kind and thoughtful of you and it really brightened my day up.

Sharron, I just thought I would write this email to say thank you for everything you have done and for all of the encouragement you provided me with. You made everything so simple and easy to apply in every day life. I am now doing something I love and I am the happiest I have been in a long time. Thank you for all of your hard work and for listening to me it meant so much.
