Number 256 Swords Road
holistic therapy centre
The new therapy centre at 256 Swords Road in Santry opened in June 2019 after renovations completed. I moved my therapy practice in and have been working here since while adding finishing touches to the furnishings. Having worked as a therapist in private practice for 12 years I have a good idea from my own experience of what is needed in a therapy room - I will also ask therapists who work here to tell me what they need to make the rooms more suitable for their work.
There are four rooms available for rent:
Upstairs 2 are suitable for talking therapy with individuals, couples and families, as well as suitable for plinth work. The furniture is easily moved to one side to provide good space for a plinth.
Upstairs 1 room is suitable for one-to-one talking therapy.
Downstairs there is 1 larger room which is wheelchair accessible and has its own entrance door. This room is suitable for talking therapy, plinth work, or for small groups of up to 8-10 people.
Rooms are available for rent either on an hourly basis, or for block bookings in the morning, afternoon or evenings. The block bookings are:
Mornings 9:00am-1:00pm, Mon-Sat.
Afternoons 1:30pm to 5:30pm, Mon-Sat.
Evenings 6:00pm – 9:30pm, Mon-Fri.
Therapists registered with the centre have access to an online booking system, to easily manage their own bookings.
We also have a kitchenette and a staffroom for therapists. When I worked in different locations over the years I really appreciated the chance to meet other therapists and it was important to me to have this possibility for people who work here. I believe it helps us in our work to share information as colleagues, help each other remain grounded between sessions, and share lighter moments.
