‘Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is fuel in us which needs to be ignited’

A First For Ireland

As trained counsellors and psychotherapists, we continue to enhance our own personal development. To achieve this, we annually invite the world’s leading experts in Attachment Theory, Addiction, Trauma and Neuroscience to Ireland, to share their knowledge and expertise to a wide variety of like-minded people.  Their ground breaking research and innovative ideas have provided our attendees with fresh outlooks on the profession, a renewed enthusiasm and alternative approaches to their work. These insights can then be integrated into their daily work, enhancing their capacity to be more compassionate and competence caregivers.. Find out more

Who are we ?

Professional Counselling & Psychotherapy Seminars Ireland wants to be recognised as providers of high quality, professional seminars. To evolve and develop as practising counsellors, we need to be aware of international, cutting edge research in our related fields. One way of keeping abreast of such developments is to bring leading experts to us, eliminating expensive travel costs to international conferences. In this way, Irish student psychologists and professional counsellors can benefit from one day seminars led by internationally recognised experts. It is hoped that their inspirational advice and alternative approaches can influence your career path for the better.  Find out more

I found the seminar excellent. David was a wonderful lecturer who held my attention for every minute. Through his sharing of himself and his experiences, I learned a great deal about therapy and, more importantly, about myself.

I am looking forward to attending the next seminar

Everything about providing a training for PCPSI was wonderful! The staff could not have been more gracious and accommodating.  From the initial invitation and earliest planning stages to the actual event I was treated with such respect, enthusiasm, and kindness. The workshop venue was beautiful, the participants were so welcoming, bright, and eager to learn. The entire environment, created with loving care by Liam and his wonderful colleagues, made the two day training an absolute joy. It was an honor and privilege to present for PCPSI and I can’t wait to return!”

David Wallin’s workshop in Cork was a much improved version from what I experienced in London some years ago. His structure and delivery made the principles of attachment theory accessible to a large and diverse group of people. He engaged the audience in lively debate, and welcomed their feedback and criticisms.

He took risks in sharing his own way of practicing and how his attachment history had a big input in his perception and responses in the therapeutic relationship. I particularly enjoyed his focus on how the therapist’s own attachment patterns shape therapy and I found his presentation on “what can’t be spoken will tend to be enacted” especially helpful.

Two days well spent in the company of an experienced and committed professional

A really superb two days. Blimey I’m tired! Looking forward to processing and digesting over the coming days/months/years.. Dan Segel is some powerhouse. Allowing space for intense information sharing in such a professional way and I LOVED the space for humour so much as well as the movement! Many congratulations to all involved in such a successful event.
