At LAPCC we provide a specialist counselling and psychotherapy service located in Dublin 14, Kildare and Wicklow. We have accredited psychotherapists and counsellors trained to work with adolescents and their parents. We provide a safe, creative environment where adolescents between the ages of 11 and 24 years can explore the many issues that may be challenging at this time in their lives. We also support the parents as part of the process. In 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic added a layer of anxiety and complexity to our lives and in particular to the lives of young people. At LAPCC we support young people and their parents to understand the impact of this upheaval on their lives and work through any issues arising.

Our team are experienced adolescent psychotherapists and supervisors specialising in short and longer-term counselling & psychotherapy to address a range of issues from normal developmental issues and worries to complex psychological conditions.
