Our Service

The Maya Centre Core Service

  • Detailed assessments of the therapeutic needs of women referred to us
  • Long term psychodynamic counselling for those who meet our criteria and for whom it is appropriate
  • Psychodynamic and also therapeutic group work

Our counselling is psychodynamic in nature which means that it looks not only at problems in the present but, crucially, at the roots of these problems in the past.

  • Irish women
  • Ethnic minority and refugee women
