Integrative Psychotherapy Ireland

Robert Coyle MIACP, IFS Informed


My name is Robert, I am a counsellor and integrative psychotherapist. I work with adults on a one-to-one basis who are experiencing a range of challenges including:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Trauma
  • Suicide
  • Lack of confidence
  • Panic attacks
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship breakup
  • Career issues
  • Unemployment
  • A lack of direction, purpose or meaning in their life

Types of therapy I use

I am trained in multiple approaches to therapy as well as methods to integrate different aproaches successfully. What this means is that we will figure out a way that really works for you.

I use aspects of person-centered, cognitive behavioural (CBT), internal family systems (IFS), psychoanalytic, existential and logotherapy and combine them using integrative techniques to arrive at an approach that best suits you.

About Me

I hold a degree in integrative counselling and psychotherapy, as well as one in management science. I am also IFS informed. I am a fully accredited member of IACP the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am trained in numerous approaches including:

  • Person-centred
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)
  • Psychoanalytic
  • Existential
  • Logotherapy
  • Transactional analysis
  • Integrative techniques

I worked in the technology sector for six years; starting on a helpdesk and working up to management. I then worked for fifteen years in senior management in advertising agencies before training as a psychotherapist.

“talking works”

Sometimes we feel a reluctance to talk about what is troubling us. Sometimes that reluctance is based in a fear of how people will react. I am trained to listen and accept without judgement. I am there for you. I am on your side.

Sometimes the reluctance can some from a sense of shame, or guilt because we believe that we should be able to handle things on our own. No-one can make it through life on their own. We all need help sometimes.

Sometimes the reluctance is because we believe that saying the words out loud will make the problem bigger, or more real; that it will move from inside us out into the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. Not talking about what affects us is a sure-fire way to make it bigger. As someone once said “what is denied, multiplies”.

And sometimes the reluctance is because we don’t believe that talking can actually do anything – “sure how can talking help? it’s only words?” It turns out that the brain does “thinking” differently to how it does “talking” and this difference is a biological basis for why counselling works.

People have always known that counselling works; royalty, military leaders, business owners, politicians, scientists, athletes, artists, thinkers and doers… all have used trusted listeners to help them work through what they were facing. The old saying of “a problem shared is a problem halved” is not about handing the other person part of your problem. It describes how talking a problem out (and I would add with someone who is trained how to listen properly), reduces it. Talking about it brings it more into focus; revealing where its edges are and showing that it isn’t as big as it seemed. I have yet to meet a life problem that got worse because the person talked about it with someone who knows how to listen properly.
