Spirasi is an NGO that provides holistic rehabilitation services for survivors of torture throughout Ireland. We are looking to recruit accredited and experienced psychotherapists for one day a week to provide therapeutic interventions to survivors of torture. There are two positions available.

WATERFORD: This position will be based in Waterford, but the successful candidate will work remotely using phone and online platforms during our Covid response. They will be working in the Waterford City Centre post-Covid restrictions. This position is one day a week.

ONLINE: The second position is a remote therapist position and the successful candidate will remain working remotely without being based in any one location post-Covid. They will provide therapeutic support and intervention using phone and online video technology. Face-to-face sessions may be possible once the current restrictions due to Covid-19 are sufficiently eased and the geographic location of the candidate allows for it. This position is one day a week.
The candidates will be able to deliver both individual and group interventions via phone and online platforms to people who have survived torture and other serious human rights violations, who come from a range of cultures and backgrounds. This work will include the use of interpreters where necessary.
