IACP Members Survey Report

The 2013 survey was the largest and most comprehensive study of Counsellor/Psychotherapist work and views ever undertaken in Ireland.

We are most grateful to the 700+ members that took the time to fill out the surveys.

In order to produce an unbiased view of the survey results, we commissioned Behaviour & Attitudes, an independent Market Research company, to interpret the quantitative and qualitative data and present it as they saw it.

In addition, much of the information from the survey has been used by the strategic planning committee in the production of the forthcoming 2014-2017 IACP strategic plan.

I hope you find the report to be an interesting and informative read.

Naoise Kelly
National Director

Timeframe for statutory registration

 

Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.

 

The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.

 

On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.

 

Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
