Sisters are involved in counselling and therapy in various centres throughout the congregation.
They offer people on low incomes low-cost or no-cost counselling in the areas of addiction, bereavement, loss, abuse, homelessness, separation and marriage.
This can include psychotherapy and art therapy. Clients include prisoners, ex-prisoners and people who grew up in the care homes of the Sisters of Charity in the past.
OASIS COUNSELLING CENTRE
Oasis Counselling Centre was established in 1996, to offer an “Oasis” to the North Inner City and provides counselling to individuals, couples, and groups facing issues of a personal or professional nature. We offer a safe and supportive place where difficulties can be discussed and worked through in confidence.
The Deora Project was established in 2003 and provides counselling to people who have suffered loss as a result of bereavement, suicide, homicide or addiction and offers a low cost/no cost bereavement and addiction counselling service. The Deora Project also provides crisis intervention for people who are suicidal and we provide two day trainings in suicide intervention first aid.
