Here2Help

Berit Anderson, PACT

Here2Help is exactly that: here to help and support anyone affected by a crisis pregnancy, whether past or present. Our services include face-to-face counselling and support, as well as a telephone helpline. All our services are free, and non-medical only.
Following an abortion a woman may experience feelings of loss and regret, but perhaps equally likely feelings of relief and a sense of being able to move forward. Not everyone who has had an abortion will need counselling, but for some it may be a way of reaching closure on their experience. The same applies to anyone who is close to a woman who has had an abortion, whether partners or close family members. Counselling following an abortion may be arranged even before travelling abroad, in order to know that there is a space to 'de-brief' on the return.

Occasionally it may happen that feelings of grief or loss persist over time, or that events later in life trigger a reaction related to an earlier abortion. That is when it may be important to seek out counselling. Having experienced an abortion does not mean an individual has to live with negative feelings of guilt, regret or sadness for the rest of their life. Here2Help's counsellors offer a safe and confidential space to explore the experience and the impact it has had or is having on an individual's life.

Location: South Dublin
Here2Help Main Office: 18D Nutgrove Office Park, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14

How to get here: The Dublin office is ideally located if you are driving from Dublin or the area around, as it is easily accessible from the M50. Please see our website www.here2help.ie for detailed instructions on how to find us and information about public transport.

When you get here: Here2Help's location within a business park with dozens of other businesses provides great anonymity. When you arrive at Here2Help just ring the door bell and you will be let in by one of our friendly receptionists and asked to wait in our waiting room. As we provide a range of services, no-one you meet, apart from the counsellor, will know your personal reason for coming to Here2Help. Waiting times are normally minimal, and the counsellor will come to the waiting room herself to bring you up to her office or the counselling room.

We do not operate a drop-in service, but it is not unusual that we would be able to see you on the same day if you ring ahead.

Who can attend: Counselling is available to anyone involved in a crisis pregnancy, partners and family members as well. Feel free also to bring someone with you for support if you feel this is helpful.
