Find a Therapist



Play therapists who have also trained in psychotherapy, either prior to or as part of their play therapy training, (since 2010 this takes a minimum 4 years at Masters level) are qualified to work with clients across the spectrum of need including those with complex histories and/or significant clinical issues, e.g. attachment disorders and experiences of abuse.

 IAPTP has its own register of psychotherapists with a specialisation in play therapy who have been directly accredited as such with us.

Those who are eligible to be IAPTP psychotherapist members who have completed either:


  • An IAPTP recognised play therapy and psychotherapy course
  • Separate qualifying training plus the post-qualifying training on a training course recognised by the IAPTP.

Accredited play therapist members of the IAPTP who are also accredited psychotherapists with a member association of the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (e.g. IAHIP) are also listed in this website as psychotherapists.
