Our Aim

Excellence in training that enables you to progress on your journey of learning  

Where we began?

In 1993 the Irish Institute of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy was established by a group of psychotherapists, with the aim of developing a training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Following on from the success of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy training, there were further developments which included the introduction of the Masters of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in conjunction with Department of Psychiatry within the Faculty of Health Sciences at Trinity College Dublin.

Our Approach 

The training programmes delivered by the IIPP combine academic, and clinical components. There is a particular focus on self-development throughout training. We emphasise self-awareness and the development of oneself along the process.

Why Us?

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is governed by regulatory bodies both at national and international level, namely the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP) and the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP)


The Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is an accrediting body for psychoanalytic psychotherapy in Ireland. IIPP training programmes meet the accrediting criteria set out by this body. The IFPP, under the aegis of the ICP, offers a supportive and governance role to psychoanalytic psychotherapists in enabling them to engage with peers within the psychoanalytic community.
