We represent the majority of Psychotherapists in the Republic of Ireland. We have a mandate to do so from our members. They come from five different traditions of psychotherapy, or different disciplines, but come together in the Council to advocate, educate and to promote psychotherapy.

We are a unique voice for the profession, democratically elected and internationally affiliated to the Euro-wide group charged with maintaining and improving standards, the European Association of Psychotherapy.
