ABOUT CORK ACCESS WELLNESS CENTRE
The opening of Access Wellness Centre is the culmination of over fifteen years development in the area of client-centred support with the use of the most modern evidence-based research to ensure positive outcomes for distressed clients.
Making use of specialisms in somatic trauma therapy, EMDR, family and attachment focused psychotherapy and respectful solution-focused addiction counselling work the client is held as the absolute expert in their own experiencing of their emotions.
Access Wellness Centre promotes an integrated approach in assisting clients to solve long-held negative core beliefs and to develop change-from-within towards wellness and recovery. We aim to be a leading proponent in trauma-based work for children, adolescents and adults who are affected by anxiety and stress in their lives and to promote further excellence in clinical work through training, research and collaboration internationally. We also support good clinical practice through our clinical supervision program for developing therapists.
The company continues to explore further areas of counselling and research within some of the more intractable issues such as eating distress, self-harm and addiction.
