Better2Know’s Private Counselling Service in Ireland

Better2Know’s private sexual health counselling service in Ireland enables those who are stressed or worried about their sexual health to talk to a qualified specialist regarding their concerns.

Your private sexual health counsellor can:

  • Provide a safe space to discuss the emotions that may be generated by your STI test or results.
  • Talk about your specific concerns and how they may be affecting you.
  • Suggest lifestyle adjustments for you to stay healthy, both mentally and physically, following the receipt of your results.

During your patient journey with Better2Know, you can remain completely anonymous. Your private appointment is 100% confidential and will be conducted at your own pace and discretion.

Coping with Sexual Health Related Issues

Sometimes positive results, or sexual health worries, can increase levels of stress and generate feelings of anxiety and confusion. Many STIs are curable and can be treated with prescribed medication. Others may require more long-term management. Better2Know’s highly qualified counselling specialists can provide support and expertise to help you better understand your STI status.

Our private counselling services are available to everyone in Ireland; whether you have just received your positive diagnosis or are waiting for your results to be returned. You can discuss your specific concerns with your Better2Know sexual health counsellor.

Better2Know’s STI Testing Services

We provide a variety of sexual health testing options that are available at private STI clinics throughout Ireland. Better2Know’s STI screens combine tests for a variety of sexually transmitted infections to give you peace of mind with regards to your STI status. These include HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Herpes, Syphilis, Hepatitis, HPV, Trichomonas, Mycoplasma, Gardnerella and Ureaplasma.

Better2Know’s innovative Instant tests enable you to receive your confidential results within 30 minutes of providing your samples. This popular testing option is available at selected private clinics across Ireland, including Cork, Dublin, Galway and Wicklow. You can get rapid results for six common STIs in Ireland: HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.

You will be given a signed and completed copy of the Better2Know Rapid Test Results report that will outline your results, before you leave. Immediate prescriptions for positive Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea tests will be provided and reactive blood tests will undergo confirmatory testing. For those who test positive for a blood-borne STI, Better2Know’s highly trained Patient Services team will refer you to a specialist service that can provide information on your treatment options in more detail.
