A new counselling service has officially opened in the basement of Four Pery Square on Saturday, October 8 and was launched by none other than Limerick Senior Hurling Manager, John Kiely. My Move was set up in April 2021 to help those who are struggling with addiction and mental health.



My Move Counselling offers professional, one-to-one, and online psychotherapy in areas of mental health and addiction therapy. Additionally, they also provide clinical and academic supervision to support professionals. The Counselling service was developed by Dr James Kinane, Anne Reidy and former Limerick senior hurling player Ciarán Carey.

The aims of the service are to provide counselling and psychotherapy services to people in need without waiting lists or referrals. My Move Counselling will address a wide range of issues that people face today with the most common being stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

My Move’s mission is to provide affordable and accessible support to people who are looking to improve areas in their emotional and mental health transitions.

While change can be challenging, the team of three therapists are ready to help people overcome those challenges by giving each person the space to reflect on their lives and prepare for the moves they need to take with support and encouragement by their side.

My Move seeks to embrace the complexity of each person as it considers the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of each person’s life.

My Move Counselling centres work in a setting where active engagement of all faith experiences is encouraged as a support in a person’s recovery, it seeks to help all to discover their giftedness and grow in a process of reflection and insight. They provide professional and non-judgemental services in a welcoming environment to help regain and restore your well-being.

The counselling and psychotherapy are delivered by a team of experienced therapists who have expertise in the areas of mental health and addiction.

They offer support and encouragement to individuals dealing with mental health and addiction issues so that recovery and a better quality of life becomes a reality for them and their families.
