Turas Counselling Services Ltd.

An in-depth look at the inspiration, motivation and driving forces behind some of the organisations supported by Dundalk Credit Union’s Community Support Fund in 2019.

Founded in 2005, Turas Counselling Services Ltd, Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk, provides a range of supports to individuals within our community who are experiencing problematic substance use including a recently launched 20 week Structured Day Programme for recovering alcohol and drug users, Community Based Alcohol Detox, Counselling Service, Outreach Support, Family Support and Women for Sobriety Groups.

Turas Counselling has a skilled, accredited and experienced team, including trained counsellors, facilitators and outreach workers who support the delivery of a range of services to Dundalk and its wider community.

Through the provision of psychological, emotional and practical supports, Turas hopes to provide a bridge to reconnect service users to a substance free lifestyle. The centre has provided supports and therapy to many within our community since it opened its doors in 2005.

Speaking about their most recent addition, the 20-week Structured day programme, Nicki Jordan, Manager “The staff are highly experienced in working with addiction and this programme will create a space for people to build up vital life skills such as self-reflection and awareness, assertiveness, stress management and also give them the confidence to link into community supports in terms of employment and education.

It is through building up resilience and self-confidence that people begin to realise their own worth and make different choices, leading to improvements in their life.’

Billy Doyle, CEO, Dundalk Credit Union added “At Dundalk Credit Union our purpose is to build a stronger, more sustainable community, and we believe passionately in people. The commitment and expertise of the team at Turas ensures that those most fragile and in need within our community get the supports and assistance they require to rebuild a healthy lifestyle. We are delighted to support the continued great work of Turas Counselling.”
