A warm welcome to our website

We hope that it provides you with information about what we do as counsellors, however if you still have questions please feel free to ring or email us to find out more.

Sligo Gestalt Counselling was established by Accredited Gestalt Counsellors Hugh Bennett and Tina Horton.

We provide professional one-to one counselling, couple counselling, group work, personal development (such as meditation groups) and training and are situated in Sligo Town. The cost for one-to one and couple counselling is €60 per session.

Counselling using Gestalt methodology has proved to be effective for the following issues:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Relationship Issues
  • Self Esteem
  • Bereavement
  • Sexuality Issues
  • Addiction
  • Bullying
  • Coping with change
  • Group Work
  • Work Related Issues


This is by no means an exhaustive list.

Our next meditation group starts on Saturday September 17th in central Sligo. Click here for more information on the meditation group.

Our services are underpinned by the belief that everyone has the capacity to move towards health and well being. As counsellors, our emphasis is on increasing people's personal awareness of how they are in the world, how they interact with themselves and others.

Sometimes due to childhood experiences or traumatic events we can loose our sense of 'self' leading to a feeling of 'something missing' and development of less fullfiling or even destructive relationships with ourselves and others.

Increasing personal awareness leads to growth, choice and change and Gestalt Counselling encourages people to be more present to themselves and engaged in their own lives. Our practice is also influenced by meditation and mindfulness techniques.
