Pieta provides up to 12 free, one-to-one Therapy sessions to those self-harming. Therapy is offered nationally – by video, phone, or in-person at one of our locations across Ireland. 

We understand this is a big step for anyone on their journey to recovery, and our dedicated staff are there to support those accessing our services. 

The first step is to call us. 

If you don’t feel you can manage this alone, ask a loved one to help you by being there with you when you make the call. We will need to ask you some questions to make sure we are the right service for you; if so, we will arrange an appointment.  

You will always be treated with dignity and respect. 

You will need to provide the phone contact details of a support person to ensure we have an In Case of Emergency (ICE) contact. Following the assessment, we’ll arrange for one of our therapists to start your therapy with you. You’ll see them as soon as possible. 

Appointments are usually 50 minutes and are always free of charge.

Why am I hurting myself?

Intentionally hurting yourself can be a way to express difficult emotions. Self-harm may be your way of releasing feelings of distress or anger. It may be your way of coping, but here at Pieta, we can help you find another way.

Pieta wants to support you, by introducing strategies to help you manage your coping skills. We are here for you.

We recognise that self-harm is your current coping mechanism, and it may be working for you right now. Self-harming can help you cope in the present moment, but we will help you develop alternative, life-long coping skills. The Pieta therapy model aims to help move from self-harm to self-care

We offer up to 12 sessions of free counselling, depending on your needs.
