Towards Healing


Towards Healing is an organisation which provides telephone counselling as well as a counselling and psychotherapy referral service for people who have suffered physical, emotional or sexual abuse when they were children, by persons working for the Catholic Church in Ireland.

If you have suffered in this way, Towards Healing will provide services to you no matter where you are currently living.

Towards Healing is a new Counselling and Support Service for survivors of Clerical and Religious abuse, funded by the Catholic Church.

It replaces the Faoiseamh Counselling Service which has been in operation since 1997, and which has provided face-to-face counselling to over 4,000 persons during that time, as well as Helpline Support to over 15000 survivors of Clerical and Religious Abuse.

The services provided by Towards Healing will be developed in consultation with representatives of Survivors, and will include healing meetings, groupwork, practical workshops and a bridging service designed to link clients to services relevant to their needs.
