Welcome to The Sunflower Clinic

Update 31-March 2020

All Clinics are now closed in line with schools closure

On continuing advice from the Irish Government and the HSE, all clinics will remain closed until we are allowed to re-open.  Once we are given the go ahead to re-open, we will contact all parents and reschedule any missed appointments etc.

Please be advised that a number of our staff have been seconded to the HSE to help out with the crisis and they may be delayed in returning to work for us when we re-open.  Again, we would ask you to bear with us as we try to accommodate the re-scheduling of appointments.  Please be assured that no client will be left without either a rescheduled appointment or a refund.

If anyone needs to speak to us urgently, please email and we will return your call as soon as we can.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding at this time and Stay Home, Stay Safe.

Compulsory Registration of Therapists in Ireland

It has come to our attention that a different children’s therapy clinic in Cork is currently being sued in the High Court due to non-registration of therapists employed there with the state registration body for Ireland – CORU.  The Sunflower Clinic want to reassure all of its clients that ALL of our therapists are fully registered with CORU and their registration details are displayed in reception and are available on request by any parent or organisation.  Our Psychologists are all registered separately with the Psychological Society of Ireland and their registration details are also available on request.

The Sunflower Clinic is fully supportive of the registration requirements of CORU and the P.S.I. to ensure the continuing highest level of quality care for all of its clients.  If any client or parent has any question or concern, please contact your nearest clinic in confidence.


Due to the high number of phone calls at present, if you cannot immediately get through by phone, please email with your name, child’s name and date of birth, the reason for referral and your contact details, including phone number, and we will return your call as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can fill in the Contact Us form on our website and this will send us an email. We are currently recruiting an additional receptionist for our Cork clinic and hope to have them up and running by the end of January.

We appreciate bearing with us until then.

Thank you.
