About us


Founded in 1983 by Joan O Leary & Hank O Mahony, the Irish Gestalt Centre offers  a range of training and professional development workshops in Gestalt Therapy in Ireland, the UK and Europe.  IGC’s training has gained a strong reputation within Ireland and in the international Gestalt community.

The programme is validated at Masters level by IT Carlow and accredited by both IAHIP and IACP. Students not progressing to Module 4 (Dissertation Module) will be eligible for the Level 9 award of the Postgraduate Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy.

To date IGC has graduated more than 300 therapists who work worldwide in university settings, medical centres, education, social services and private practice.  We take pride in working as a professional team, dedicated to our own ongoing personal and professional development as well as providing opportunities for our graduates to keep abreast of changes in Gestalt theory and practice.
