The M.Sc. in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy was offered by the Irish Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies at Turning Point in partnership with the School of Nursing.

The programme's philosophy embraces a particular attitude towards the practice of psychotherapy, one that affirms the importance of a unifying approach to mankind. Thus a major focus is on responding appropriately and effectively to a person at the emotional, spiritual, cognitive-behavioural and physiological levels. The theoretical orientations are principally those of Carl Rogers (client centred) and Roberto Assagioli (Psychosynthesis), woven together to form an integrated approach. The Graduate Diploma/M.Sc. programme leads to individual accreditation of students by the Irish Council of Psychotherapy (Humanistic and Integrative Section) and The Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, the relevant bodies for professional accreditation of counsellors and psychotherapists in Ireland. The course has been recognised by the European Association of Integrative Psychotherapy (EAIP) as having reached their training standards.
