Clanwilliam Institute is a registered charity (CHY6591) committed to making psychotherapy services accessible to all. The Institute was established in 1982 as a centre for systemic therapy and practice in Ireland. Its founding members were Ed Mc Hale and Phillip Kearney. It quickly gained a reputation for excellence due mostly to its commitment to continued professional development, high quality clinical standards and its ethos and values.
Today, Clanwilliam provides therapy to individuals, couples and families and education for mental health professionals. We provide services in a variety of locations, including schools and in the community, to diverse populations including asylum seekers and refugees and have a number of partnership projects in the provision of services including the Traveller counselling service.
Over the years Clanwilliam Institute has developed a highly reputable academic and professional training course for family therapists, accredited by Quality and Qualifications Ireland, the Family Therapy Association of Ireland, (the governing and registration body of family therapists in Ireland) and the European Association for Psychotherapy which is the registration body for psychotherapists across Europe.
Clanwilliam provides a systemic psychotherapy service that is unique and of high calibre. The Institute is staffed by experienced professional therapists, all of whom have undertaken post-graduate training and are registered with the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP), the Family Therapy Association or Ireland (FTAI) and the European Association of Psychotherapy (EAP). The Institute is managed by the CEO and the Management Team.
The principles of equality, inclusion and ethics underpin the work of the Institute.
