When you or someone close to you receives a cancer diagnosis it is normal to experience fear, stress, anxiety worry and anger. We are all different and everyone can have a different reactions to life's challenges. It can be hard to talk to those closest to you about you feelings and worries.

At Recovery Haven Kerry  our team of professional counsellors provide confidential, understanding and empathetic support for you through our short term model of counselling. You are entitled to 8 free sessions during which our counsellors encourage you to express and reflect on the life challenges and transitions cancer has brought into your life. This can empower a person with clarity and confidence to cope and manage these challenges.

Appointments are available by arrangement.


Is a form of counselling that uses a range of art materials as a way of self-expression in a safe and gentle way. 


Sometimes we do not have the words to express all that is going on as we face challenges. Through art therapy you have a platform for exploring your  emotions and finding ways to communicate difficult emotions.


Appointments are by arrangement.

Children's Counselling

Play therapy is a form of counseling for children that allows them to communicate through play. When cancer enters a child's life it may bring big challenges. Often kids do not have the words to express all they are feeling. A qualified play therapist will work with your child to act out feelings and bring them to the surface – in the open and face them in a safe space. They can learn to control or let go of  these feelings though the process of the therapy.

For adolescents one to one sessions may be more appropriate, please make contact with our support nurse to discuss your child's needs.


Appointments are available by arrangement.

All our services are provided free of charge. If you or someone you may know would like to attend any of the Recovery Haven Kerry support group please call in or contact us on 066 719 2122 or for more information.
