About our Services

Cura services are provided through our Hub and Outreach services nationwide. Services are provided by over 70 specially trained counsellors, some of whom work on a voluntary basis with the organisation.

Cura counsellors will arrange to see clients outside of Hub/Outreach opening hours by appointment and also will travel to meet clients locally in response to clients’ needs.

Cura services are available during opening hours, drop-in or by appointment.

All Cura services are free of charge and there is no limit on the amount of sessions.

Our National Helpline operates 6 days per week; for more information on calling the Helpline please click here.

All services are available to women, men and all family members.

Note: Cura does not provide contact details for abortion clinics, or information on abortion services. In response to requests for abortion services information Cura counsellors will refer clients to their own GP or to the HSE list of local GPs.

Services Provided by Cura

Crisis or Unplanned Pregnancy Support and Counselling

Cura counsellors provide the opportunity for clients to discuss options they wish to explore or consider in relation to their pregnancy.

Counselling can support clients in making decisions about their pregnancy without influence or direction.

Cura can be contacted for support at any time during pregnancy.

Pregnancy Testing

Cura provides pregnancy testing at each of its local centres free of charge.

Although results are fairly accurate, clients will need to have the test confirmed with a GP.

Counselling and Support after an Abortion

We understand that some people may experience a range of complex and difficult emotions after an abortion and Cura counsellors can support clients in this.

Support to Parents of a New Baby

Parenting a new baby can be a challenging time. In Cura parents can talk to us about the challenges and concerns which they may be facing in the early weeks and months of parenting a new baby.

Cura services are provided throughout the country to anyone who needs us.

Cura services are Free, Confidential and Non Judgemental.
