Counsellors and therapists

Bereavement

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.
Visit the AACPI web site

Arduna Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre provide a list of qualified therapists with an established reputation among professionals for the high standard of their work, a minimum of 5 years experience, full accreditation with a recognised professional organisation and specific training in their area of specialisation.

Complicated grief

This directory of complicated grief therapists is generated by ourselves, Irish Hospice Foundation. These therapists have attended our complicated grief course and therefore we can confirm have some training on prolonged grief disorder/complicated grief.
