About Turning Point™ Institute Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies
Turning Point™ Institute (TPI) was established in 2001 and evolved out of a recognition by the Founders that not only was there a huge need for a range of Psychotherapy/Counselling services, but also for the development of associated education and professional standards.
Today, TPI provides a range of educational programs including its flagship MSc programme. This 4 Year part-time MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy is run at the Institute’s premises at 23 Herbert Street, Dublin 2 and is validated and awarded by University College Cork.
Other courses include a Diploma in Supervision for Healthcare Professionals, a Foundation Course in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a range of Continuing Professional Development Programmes. Such is the calibre of the training provided that its MSc degree is validated by a National University and is accredited/recognized by the main professional and accrediting bodies in Ireland and Europe.
