Within the framework of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP), post-nominals play a pivotal role in distinguishing its members and promoting the standards and credibility of humanistic and integrative psychotherapy in Ireland.
Members of IAHIP have the privilege of using post-nominals to underscore their dedication to the field and their ongoing professional development. These post-nominals indicate that a psychotherapist has met specific educational and ethical criteria established by the IAHIP, aligning them with the association's mission to champion excellence in humanistic and integrative psychotherapy. Here's a breakdown of these post-nominals:
MIAHIP - Member of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy: This signifies the foundational post-nominal, signifying that an individual has met the IAHIP's membership prerequisites and is officially acknowledged as a member of the association. Typically, to attain this status, psychotherapists must successfully complete designated training and demonstrate their commitment to ethical practice.
SIAHIP - Supervisor of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy: This post-nominal is designated for seasoned psychotherapists who have completed supplementary training and gained approval from the IAHIP to provide supervision to other practitioners. Supervisors hold a pivotal role in maintaining the quality and safety of psychotherapy in Ireland.
Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy was formed in 1992 as a non-profit association to represent Humanistic and Integrative psychotherapists in Ireland. In 1994, the IAHIP became a company limited by guarantee (CLG), and is one of the four psychotherapy sections of the Irish Council for Psychotherapy.
