Welcome to my Psychotherapy Counseling website!

My name is Andy Hoolan. I am originally from Ireland and have lived in Finland since 2011. I worked in Ireland from 2004 – 2011 in psychotherapy and couples/marriage counselling. Previously I lived and worked in Chicago, Chile and London from 1994 until 2004.

My educational qualifications have been validated by the Finnish Board of Education (1288/2010,1§) (531/1986,1096/2007,4 ,8 §).

I received accreditation with the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP) and the Irish Association of Alcohol and Addiction Counselling (IAAAC) in 2008. I worked extensively in psychotherapeutic and addiction counselling in both the USA and Ireland and more recently as a consultant counsellor/therapist in Finland.

VALVIRA the Finnish accreditation authority for health professionals stated that because of my inadequate Finnish language proficiency I cannot be considered for accreditation as a Psychotherapist in Finland. Therefore I work now in English as a Psychological Therapist and a Pastoral Counselor.
