About ICP

The Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP) is the national umbrella body for Psychotherapy in Ireland. The Council contributes to public health by encouraging the highest standards of training, practice and on-going education of psychotherapists. The Council also promotes psychotherapy as an effective intervention for good mental and emotional health. Currently it represents over 1,500 psychotherapists nationwide. It is also the national awarding body for the European Certificate of Psychotherapy.

We act as a link between those who are looking for psychotherapeutic services and those who provide psychotherapeutic services.

The objectives of ICP include:

  • To consolidate and promote psychotherapy as a free and independent profession.
  • To promote the wider provision of psychotherapy for the public.
  • To contribute to public health by encouraging high standards of training, practice and ongoing education of psychotherapists.
  • To establish and monitor a National Register and a European Register of accredited psychotherapists in Ireland.
