HSE Primary Care Psychology (Dublin South East)
We are available to young people across the area with psychologists offering services in Ballinteer, Balally/Dundrum, Churchtown and Ballyogan/ Leopardstown primary care centres.
Psychologists will often arrange to meet you first in order to hear directly from you about your concerns or problems and with your agreement arrange a separate meeting with you & your parent(s) at a later date. The psychologist will ask some questions but will mostly listen to you so that they get a good understanding of your concerns. They will then work out a plan with you to help you address those concerns or problems.How to connect with this service → Changes to our service due to Coronavirus →

How do I connect with your service?
We would like you to complete a referral form with relevant details of your name, address, date of birth and the nature of your concerns. If you are under 18 years old we would ask that you ask your parents to sign the referral form. You do not need a GP referral letter to come to our services.
Referrals are accepted directly from parents and young people over 18 years. We acknowledge that young people aged under 18 years may wish to access the service without the consent of their parents and while we would like to support all young people it is preferable that you have the support of your parent(s) while attending our services.
