Rob Coffey

Lecturer/ Psychotherapist (IACP Preaccredited), BA Hons/ MSc

Rob has a Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Integrative Psychotherapy (Level 9) from TPTI (Dublin City University), is a pre-accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. He believes that only way to create change in the world is through inner psychological work, and his work had been around reconnecting people to themselves, to each other and to nature.

In his twenties he was one of Ireland’s top whitewater kayakers, leading expeditions to most of the most remote locations on the planet, including Iran, northern India and Ethiopia to name but a few. As he evolved into a leading and highly qualified outdoor educator, he became convinced of the healing power of nature. After several near death experiences and the trauma of losing some of his friends to the river, Rob turned to Jungian psychology, yoga and meditation to rehab his body and mind. From there he has gone on to practice as Yoga Alliance Teacher (200 RYT) on Maui, completed meditative yoga training in Mexico, Guatemala and India and is training as a Transpersonal therapist in Ireland. He also has many years experience working with plant medicines and indigenous traditions all around the world.
