Counselling service to open over Christmas

Connect, which is a free and confidential counselling service for adults who were abused in childhood is to extend its hours to open every day over Christmas.
The service is normally available Wednesday to Sunday 6-10pm, however it will open from 6pm-10pm every day from December 24th to January 4th.

Connect is telephone based and people can access it by calling freephone 1800 235 235. Callers will get to speak with a professionally trained counsellor who can listen and provide support.
The service is funded by the HSE and has to date been called the National Counselling Helpline Service. However, it is currently being renamed Connect, the National Adults Counselling Service.
