What training will my low cost therapist have ?

Each therapist on our low cost counselling service is a senior trainee psychotherapist. They are in their 3rd or 4th year of a degree or masters programme in Counselling or Psychotherapy. All training courses must be recognised or accredited by the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) or the Irish Association for Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP). The first 2 years of their training will have provided trainees with a firm grounding in counselling and psychotherapy approaches and in developing their therapeutic skills. 
 

What is the background of my low cost therapist ?

Each trainee on our low cost service has been chosen on the basis of their suitability to the professional and ethical ethos of Mind and Body Works. Trainees are required to attend their own personal therapy, and work under the supervision of their training programme and a professional accredited Supervisor. Most trainees will have a professional background in caring services before commencement of training. All trainee therapists at Mind and Body Works have been vetted by the Gardai and are covered by insurance.
