What is a fully accredited Psychotherapist?
A fully accredited psychotherapist is a fully qualified, experienced and trained psychotherapist, who has been scrutinized and accepted as fit to professionally practice by their professional body. The most recent CORU regulations at this time, indicate a Masters Degree (Level 9 NFQ/QQI) will be the minimum education level for a Psychotherapist, & an undergraduate degree for a counsellor once the register is established. The main professional psychotherapy accreditation body in Ireland is IAHIP (Undergraduate & postgraduate training plus a Min. 600 supervised individual client hours). IAHIP have a database of accredited psychotherapists on their website. They have minimum standards of training, qualifications and supervised clinical practice.
I was also awarded the European Certificate of Psychotherapy (ECP), by the board of the European Association of Psychotherapy based in Vienna, which requires a minimum of 7 years recognised/approved Study/training and a minimum of 3,200 hours, as well as supervision, clinical practice, personal therapy and professional recommendation.
Psychotherapist's generally undergo longer and more advanced professional training, clinical practice, often at least 7 years before becoming fully accredited. Counsellor training and accreditation is generally shorter in duration and less advanced.
