Strategic Plan 2021 - 2025

This plan lays out the framework for the Association’s development and is the formal strategy approved by the IACP Board. 

In developing this Strategic Plan, the IACP focused on:

  • The role of IACP in maintaining the highest professional standards of Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • The changing societal and economic environment
  • The changes expected in relation to Regulation
  • Revised Vision for Change and other national healthcare policy and legislation
  • The evolving delivery of mental health services
  • The professionalism of our members
  • The value of Counselling and Psychotherapy

This new Strategic Plan covering the years 2021 to 2025 will be a time of change and opportunity for the members and the organisation. The Irish Government has commenced a process aimed at regulating the profession and establishing the Registration Board for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The strategy outlines a range of specific key actions that the Board of Directors has identified as important in parallel with the ongoing regulatory process.

This strategy document outlines several developments that are planned for the upcoming years and several new objectives that will add value to IACP Membership. When implemented, the strategy and its key actions will contribute to making IACP and the profession stronger by 2025 and support IACP Members in making a smooth transition to State regulation. 

Many thanks to the Members of the IACP who took part in the consultation and Members of the Strategic Plan Working Group for their time and contributions.
