Do you know how to find a properly qualified therapist in Ireland? If you wish to visit a counsellor or psychotherapist it is important that they are properly trained and qualified to help you.
There are a number of organisations in Ireland that help to regulate the industry. Make sure your therapist is a member of an accrediting body. I am a fully accredited member of IACP (The Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy www.iacp.ie). Another accredited body is IAHIP (The Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy, iahip.org). For counselling psychologists the accrediting body is PSI (Psychological Society of Ireland, www.psihq.ie). On their websites they provide search facilities to find accredited therapists. Be careful who you chose and be aware that you have the right to try different therapists to find the right fit for you.
