Our work promotes best practice and the development of the profession as well as safeguard the public. As a registered Charity (CHY 6615) representing over 3,700 members, we are the largest Counselling and Psychotherapy Association in Ireland.

We are a link between those who are looking for Counselling / Psychotherapy and those who provide Counselling / Psychotherapy. In addition, we provide information and set and maintain practice and training standards. We represent Counselling / Psychotherapy at both national and international level.

IACP also partners other National and International Counselling and Psychotherapy Associations to advance the development of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
