About Maggie Dagge

Maggie Dagge. M-IACAT.   Creative arts psychotherapy (MA).               M-IFCAPP.  Child & Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (MSc).

I am a accredited Creative arts psychotherapists (dramatherapy) and an accredited child and adolescent psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I am an elected member of the council of The Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists (IACAT) and Co-ordinator of DvT Ireland.

Trained in Ireland, the UK and the USA I bring a trauma informed approach to my practice. I appreciate a fully transparent dialogue with clients, parents and employers. I adhere to a strong ethos of clinical honesty for my clients to recognise their potential.

As required of all professional psychotherapists I attend continuous professional development each year and work with a qualified supervisor. 

In 2012 I graduated from Maynooth University with a MA in Dramatherapy. During this training I encountered the DvT method of dramatherapy and began training in both London and New Haven in its application. In 2017 I spent three months working as a resident at the Post Traumatic Stress Centre in New Haven further exploring DvT with a trauma informed approach on their ALIVE programme. Trauma informed DvT dramatherapy is the style of practice that I now employ with my clients. I am accredited with the Irish association of creative arts therapists (IACAT) for my dramatherapy clinical interventions. 

I am also researching DvT as a model of intervention for artists experiencing mental health issues in relation to their artistic practice. It is intended that this research will lead to a Phd.

In 2021 I graduated with an MSc in child and adolescent psychoanalytic psychotherapy from Trinity College Dublin. I completed a further three years clinical training with The Irish Institute of Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic psychotherapy (IICAPP), 2021-2024. I am accredited with the Irish forum of child and adolescent psychoanalytic psychotherapy (IFCAPP) for my psychoanalytic clinical interventions and a member of The Irish council of psychotherapy (ICP).
