Welcome to the Gestalt Institute of Ireland
We have been providing quality psychotherapy training & personal/professional development since 1983. We began as the Irish Gestalt Centre, an organisation founded by Joan O’Leary & Hank O’Mahony to offer a range of training and CPD programmes in Ireland, the UK and Europe. In 2017 we founded the Gestalt Institute of Ireland to recognise the standing of our work, our increasing research profile and our international activity. IGC is part of the Gestalt Institute and operates as its administrative arm.
We have a strong reputation within Ireland and in the international Gestalt community and have graduated more than 400 therapists. Our alumni work worldwide in university settings, medical centres, education, social services, statutory & voluntary organisations and private practice. Our tutors take pride in working as a professional team. They are committed to their own ongoing personal and professional development and are involved with other Gestalt Institutes and organisations in Europe and the USA.
The Gestalt Institute provides regular opportunities for graduates and the wider professional community to keep abreast of changes in Gestalt theory and practice including through our international seminar series. A vibrant postgraduate community offers support and mentoring to newly qualified therapists and experienced practitioners.
