Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciencesand Psychotherapy
We offer a range of accredited Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Continuing Professional Development programmes in the areas of Arts & Psychotherapy
The School of Psychotherapy at Independent College Dublin provides a full range of training programmes from certificate level right through to master’s level. Our programmes are both academically and clinically rigorous and are designed for students entering at all levels- for those wishing to gain an excellent introduction to counselling and psychotherapy, for those seeking a degree in psychotherapeutic principles and those who wish to attain the training necessary to practice as a psychotherapist.
Our programmes allow the student to reach a standard of knowledge and expertise that will lead to professional accreditation as a psychotherapist. Taught by practitioners from a range of clinical settings, our programmes provide cutting edge clinical knowledge to the psychotherapist-in-training. Our master’s programme, for example, has a number of placements in clinical settings, significantly enlarging the student’s clinical experience. For those not seeking to specifically train as a psychotherapist, an understanding of counselling and psychotherapeutic principles is of great benefit in every kind of working environment and employment practice.
Whether you have had lifelong interest in psychotherapy and are now looking for a potential new career or you are new to the field and seeking a worthy introduction, try one of the programmes at the School of Psychotherapy.
