About Anchor Therapy

 

​Anchor Therapy 

  • Ireland's first and only, recovery-focused Mental Health Occupational Therapy service based in the community.

  • Therapy whenever, where ever: you have the choice. You can meet with Michelle or another Anchor Therapy OT in an office in Dublin, or we can meet you in your place of work, at home, in school or in any other context that lends itself to benefiting you.

  • Provides an alternative therapy option for people outside of the usual talk therapy: Yoga therapy and Occupational Therapy. 

  • Therapy is driven by your goals, interests and values- not by your diagnosis. 

  • Supports people who may not feel ready, able or interested in engaging in typical "talk therapy" services. 

  • Available to everyone over 12 years old experiencing mild-moderate mental health concerns and stressors.

  • Our focus is on building a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship with the people we work with. We believe that it is through this relationship that change an occur.

  • We provide individual and group sessions online and face to face.

Why the name Anchor Therapy?

An anchor helps a ship to stay in one place, to stay connected to the ground and to stay safe.

In therapy we provide a space that is safe and supportive just like an anchor.

It's typical for an OT to use grounding techniques, mindfulness and therapy techniques which can help you to feel calm and strong while facing storms and uncertain times.
