Culturally Responsive Counselling
Talk Therapy Dublin has continuous demand from clients of varied backgrounds, nationalities & minority perspectives. This reflects the evolving demographics of the Republic of Ireland.
We provide a culturally responsive counselling service reflected in the diversity amongst our team of therapists. A number of our therapists having undergone specific training on cultural competency and culturally responsive counselling. We aspire to provide practitioner options to all clients (within ethical guidelines) and embrace diversity and intersectionality in all its manifestations.
We can also help provide access to multilingual therapy services and currently have therapists working with us who can provide therapy in Spanish, Romanian and German aside from English.
If we are unable to to offer a suitable therapist from our core team we will certainly help assist with a relevant referral.
Multicultural Orientation Training
Talk Therapy Dublin has been involved in advocating for an increased Multicultural Orientation in service provision, not just in mental health but in all areas. We have provided training in this area for a number of different individuals and organizations.
We have recently been lucky to collaborate with Outcomes Matters who have developed a Pluralistic Multicultural Orientation (PMCOT) Training tailored for the Irish market. Outcomes Matter has developed this training, which goes beyond current cultural competency trainings and is based on the most up to date international research fused with clinical experience. It can be delivered online or in person.
For any professionals or service providers interested in exploring training on the topic please do make contact.
