We established TherapyHub.ie to help make counselling services more accessible to those in need. TherapyHub.ie is a secure and easy to use online platform which enables users to work with a therapist online. Clients can find out a little more about their counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist, communicate with them in a number of ways, check their availability, make bookings, process payments easily and arrange live online sessions.
