The Irish Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy

Patrick Nolan (Director)

Patrick  founded The Irish Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy (IIIP) in 1990. He was director of the training for psychotherapists offered by IIIP. He has extensive experience working as a trainer in other training institutes.

He views the therapeutic relationship as the cornerstone of psychotherapy and places a value on dialogue and openness to learning from different therapeutic perspectives. Fixed ideological positions can limit the creativity of practitioners. No one form of psychotherapy is adequate for all clients or clinical situations. Working in an integrative way which looks for common factors which transcend different orientations can help in responding to the individuality of each person.
