New IACP Headquarters

Property Contract Signing: Eugene McHugh, Executive Committee Member, Bernie Darcy, Cathaoirleach, Naoise Kelly, National Director and Carol Murray, Office Manager. 

The move to Marina House will took place in October 2014. This marks the first time in the IACP’s 33 year history that the organisation will own its own home.

Following the passing of an AGM motion to purchase a property, we had been seeking a premises that could meet the needs of a modern professional body and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Association. Marina House provides a much needed upgrade to the IACP’s current office, offering a larger, more modern space with excellent transport links.

Please see some photos of the property below.

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.
