FirstLight Expanding Psychotherapists Register

FirstLight Expanding Psychotherapists Register

Demand for FirstLight’s services in 2021 was the highest since the organisation was established 45 years ago, with 207 families supported nationwide. We are predicting a similar, if not higher, number in 2022.

For this reason, we are looking to expand the number of Accredited Psychotherapists and Play Therapists on the FirstLight Psychotherapists Register across the following counties:


Mayo Carlow
Kilkenny Westmeath
Athlone Donegal
Kerry Meath
Cork Galway
Offaly Cavan
Monaghan North Dublin
Louth Wicklow

All Psychotherapists on the Register must be professionally accredited, fully insured, and garda vetted before commencing psychotherapy for our service.
