When i first felt anxiety i didn’t know what it was, how to cope with it or who to even turn too. A few people recommended counselling but the thoughts of it was terrifying. The moment Ruth opened her door she welcomed me with a big smile and made me feel safe and calm. She helped me so much with my anxiety and went through so many different coping strategies. I’ve came so far since i started with Ruth. I cannot recommend her enough. Excellent service.

Siofra really helped me sort through some issues I had been having. She also went above and beyond to help accommodate my schedule. Would highly recommend.

I found Ruth to be an excellent therapist. In our sessions I felt free to air my thoughts and be listened to without judgement, which allowed me to talk about things that I’d find too difficult to talk about with family or friends. Ruth helped me to re-evaluate my thinking on different things, and she gave me practical advice and methods I can use to change my thinking and behaviour in situations I find difficult to deal with in my day-to-day life, and these have been of great benefit to me. I feel I improved a huge amount over our sessions, and I’m very grateful for the great work she did with me.

My son Noah who is 10 attended The DMC Clinic and saw an amazing counselor called Ber. Noah was nervous before attending because he didn’t know what to expect and by the end of the first session he was looking forward to the next appointment. Ber was friendly, funny and made Noah feel great about himself. I would highly recommend The DMC Clinic and Ber.

I was very nervous and not knowing what to expect on my first appointment but I didn’t need to be as the minute I met Ber she put me at ease straight away, I felt relaxed and comfortable. Ber was so kind and I felt I could be totally honest about my feelings and never felt judged or was saying something I shouldn’t be. Ber was a perfect mix of professional and compassionate, she helped me get me back and I will be forever grateful to her for all her help. I cannot recommend Ber and this service enough.

I have suffered with depression and anxiety for 20 years and over this time I am sought out many professionals to help me deal with this. It was not until I met Ruth that I truly opened up. On our first session I opened up about things I had never spoken about. I found it so easy to talk to Ruth as she was never judgemental, I was totally at ease from day one. I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough. She really is number one in this field.

I was really struggled with my social anxiety, I felt like I was the only one feeling that way and I thought I would never be able get back to how I was before but then I came across Solas Counselling Services (now The DMC Clinic) on Facebook. I left my first session feeling like I wasn’t actually alone and many others were in the same boat as me. I learnt new ways to take control of my anxiety and how to manage certain situations better. Ruth was a great help and I am happier than I’ve been in a long time.

We found the service very good for our son who was suffering from anxiety due to school pressure. They were very reassuring and help us understand the situation. We are lucky to have this service in our town. Well done

I approached Ruth because I was advised by my GP to consult a counsellor about my anxiety. Ruth helped me by providing a safe and calming environment to discuss how I was feeling as well as offering useful coping methods. The result was effective because I now feel able to cope better with situations that arise daily which I couldn’t before. One thing I liked was her proffessionalism and friendly character. I would recommend Ruth to people who need advice and direction in managing difficulties they face in their lives.
