Aistear Forensic & Psychological Services is a newly established psychological practice based in Wexford, Ireland. Aistear’s main focus is to provide assessment, treatment, support and consultation services for individuals who have engaged in a broad range of antisocial or criminal behaviours. In addition, it offers client-focused psychotherapy for individuals who, for various reasons, experience difficulty in forming healthy attachments. We provide services in both community and institutional settings, including prisons.
Aistear has expertise in the provision of services to forensic and non-forensic clients. We focus on addressing the needs of children, adolescents and adults through the implementation of empirically based treatments and the development of a therapeutic community for our clients.
We specializes in working with youths and adults who have engaged in violent and sexual offending behaviour and individuals with histories of antisocial behaviour and long term involvement in the criminal justice system.
Reflecting the cultural diversity in Ireland today, Aistear responds to the needs of all individuals regardless of culture or nationality. We have experience and expertise in providing clinical services to special needs populations and offer assessment, treatment, support and consultation services to individuals who live with a developmental disability or mental disorder.
