Finding a counsellor can be a difficult process. There is currently no government regulation of who is qualified to provide counselling and psychotherapy in Ireland.It is therefore important to enquire about a therapist’s training, professional accreditation, and experience. This can be particularly difficult when a person is in crisis or distress and can often be a hit and miss process.
The Association for Agency based Counselling and Psychotherapy in Ireland (AACPI) member organisations have counsellors/ psychotherapists that are professionally trained, who work under Codes of Ethics of accrediting professional bodies, and maintain professional liability insurance and supervision.
