Mental Health Academy

* Counselling/psychotherapy availability:

I am not currently in a position to take on new clients for psychotherapy.

I have been recently (August 2022) reaccredited as a psychotherapist with my professional association, the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP).

This reaccreditation applies for five years, i.e. until August 2027.

* CPD courses for therapists/psychologists:

I am currently (early December 2023) finalising a course on depression for mental health professionals – psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, mental health professionals for whom working with people diagnoses with depression is part of their work remit.

Course title: “Depression: A Major Course”. I expect this course to be available by January 2024 at the latest.

For further information, email me at

I have recently (2023) created courses – online workshops – for mental health professionals including therapists and psychologists.

My courses are reasonably priced, at approximately 10-15 Euro per 1 CPD hour.

These courses can be accessed on the Therapy Academy website at – the online resource for therapists to take CPD courses and further their expertise. 

On their home page, scroll down to “Online Workshops” to access my – and other – online workshops.

Currently, I have two online workshops on this site:

  1. Depression and the DSM.
  2. Trauma and the Wounded Self.

Therapists from any country can access courses on this website, and upon completion of a course, receive the appropriate CPD Certificate.

* My 2020 online course, “Understanding and Recovering from Depression”

About the Dr. Terry Lynch Mental Health Academy:

I have created the Dr. Terry Lynch Mental Health Academy so that I can share my understandings of and approach to emotional and mental health – including the psychiatric diagnoses – with a wider audience than the limited numbers of people I can work with face to face.
