Video-based sessions work in exactly the same way as face-to-face therapy and the published research demonstrates that the clinical and therapeutic outcomes are equally effective.

CBT and EMDR treatment protocols are normally delivered over 60 minute sessions held on a weekly basis. The length of therapy will vary according to the condition and level of complexity, however treatment typically takes eight-sixteen weeks to the point of clinical recovery.
CBT provision in the Republic of Ireland is limited and clients may often wait for several weeks for an initial appointment. Many therapists offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Ireland have not completed specialist post-graduate training in CBT and this often means that the quality of therapy is frequently substandard. We are professionally accredited by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), the Irish Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (IABCP)and the European Association of Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapies (EACBT). This means that your therapist will be a CBT specialist with Masters degree level Cognitive Behavioural Therapy training and full accreditation status.
As a specialist psychological service, we provide mainstream CBT, ACT, CFT, DBT, IBT and REBT. EMDR can be delivered as an individual therapy or as an adjunct to Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.
