Pieta House therapeutic model

Our therapy is centred in compassion and respect for each person who comes to us in their hour of need.

All our therapists are experienced, compassionate men and women who understand the complex reasons behind suicide and self-harm. As well as their professional qualifications*, each therapist is trained in the Pieta Way.

This therapeutic healing model is focused on solving problems and building emotional strength.

We’re confident the Pieta Way works. We’ll be sharing this knowledge with other professionals at the next International Association of Suicide Prevention Conference.

We are also working on research involving people who have been through the Pieta Way and are happy to share their experiences of our therapeutic model with us.

*All Pieta House therapists are psychotherapists or psychologists whose qualifications are recognised by the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP), the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) or the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI).
