I practise as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist working within the code of ethics of the Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Ireland (I.F.P.P.). I’m also registered as a psychotherapist with the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP) which is the national umbrella body for Psychotherapy in Ireland.
I hold a First Class Honours Masters degree in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from University College Dublin and a Diploma in Group Work Practice awarded by the Irish Institute of Group Analysis (in association with UCD’s School of Psychotherapy). I’m an associate member of the Irish Group Analytic Society. I also have also completed training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Integrative Psychosynthesis Counselling. I have a particular interest in the mental health of young adults and young offenders.
Call me (Tom Conlon) on 086 368-8824 to make an appointment to discuss your current situation and consider how psychoanalytic psychotherapy might make a difference in your life. I have consulting rooms at the following locations:
Midleton Holistic Centre, 2, Main Street, Midleton, Co. Cork; The Therapy Rooms, Victoria Cross, Cork City; City Therapy, 18 Dame Street, Dublin 2.
“A psychoanalyst does not make promises of health, but rather commits to leaving open an investigative space, a space that the subject, before, felt was stifled by inhibition, symptom, and anxiety. Moreover, he promises to keep the responsibility for the act he has inaugurated with his analysand vigilant and active. The work of an analysis can prompt startling effects in knowledge but equally so in solitude and helpless confusion. And here, the analyst has no wish to shirk his own implication: he can no longer withdraw by projection or institutionalization.” Sergio Contardi – http://www.journal-psychoanalysis.eu/on-psychoanalytical-formation-and-its-regulation-in-italy/
