The Irish Institute of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy was established in 1993 by a group of psychotherapists with the aim of developing training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Ireland.
One-to-one psychoanalytic psychotherapy sessions between a client and a senior trainee or experienced therapist.
A senior trainee is in the final two years of a four-year professional clinical Psycholanalytic Psychotherapy training.
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a therapeutic process which helps patients understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world, both past and present and its influence over relationships. It gives the client space to explore and reflect on their life from infancy to the present day, to examine the relationships and events of the past which may contain the roots of present distress and to, over time, move towards a deep-seated change in personality and emotional development.
The clinic is open to everyone.
Areas covered include, but are not limited to:
- Fear & anxiety
- Relationship difficulties
- Family issues
- Transgenerational issues
- Adjusting to illness / injury
- Emotional difficulties
- Suicidal ideation
- Feelings of meaningless and emptiness
- Struggling to cope with the aftermath of trauma
- Sexual identity / sexual issues
- Post addiction support
- Physical problems that may have a psychological origin
The fee, (on a sliding scale from €20-45), is negotiated between the client and therapist and is dependent upon the client’s resources and ability to pay.
Therapists are available across Ireland.
