About The Well Woman Centre Dublin


The Dublin Well Woman Centres were founded in 1978 to help Irish women access family planning advice and services. We now operate three medical centres, and influence public policy and awareness by speaking out on women's health issues. For more information on policy concerns, go to About Well Woman

The 3 key objectives are.

1. Advocating women’s health and social well being.
2. Providing an affordable, high quality, women focused health care service.

3. Pioneering for change on the issues that impact on a woman's well-being.

Non Directive Counselling

Non-directive counselling means that the counsellor will offer no opinion as to what is best for you, but is there to provide a safe and totally confidential space for you to explore your feelings about the problem, and to look at all of the options you feel are open to you, whatever your situation.

Well Woman counselling sessions last approximately one hour, and are offered on an appointment-only basis.

Well Woman employs fully qualified professional counsellors, all of whom are accredited by IACP - the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

To be a member of IACP, a counsellor must have completed a minimum of 400 hours - after training - of supervised client work, and must have completed an IACP-recognised training course. S/he must also engage in ongoing professional supervision.

Professional accreditation also means that clients are protected from the harm that can be done by poor counselling. IACP protects clients by naming an ethical and professional set of regulations in which a therapist works. If a client has an issue with a therapist, s/he can refer back to IACP.

Well Woman is campaigning for the introduction of a national system of regulation for counsellors, which is essential if women are to be protected from unprofessional or unqualified 'so-called' counsellors

In addition to employing four professional counsellors, Well Woman also offers the services of two consultants, who see clients in our Pembroke Road medical centre.

Dr Eimer Philbin-Bowman is a Psychiatrist who sees clients for a wide range of issues, including anxiety and depression, psycho-sexual problems, vaginismus and eating disorders.

Joan McGowan is a Relate UK Counsellor and is IATC accredited. She has been associated with Well Woman for many years and acts as Supervisor to our ‘in house’ team of counsellors. She specialises in couple/relationship counselling working with couples or individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships. She also offers personal counselling.

To book an appointment with Eimer or Joan, or for information on their professional fees, please contact our Pembroke Road medical centre
