Ted Bourke

RMN, Dip. Child & Adolescent Psy, EFT., M.A. Dev.  Dip. Management, Process Work Diplomate.

I first began working as a Community Mental Health Nurse in the promotion of rehabilitation and community inclusion.  Most of my mainstream working life is in the service provision of Mental Health and Disability service provision in Ireland. More recent work includes health research, training and project development.  Currently I lead teams in the development of services for people with Autism throughout the East Coast of Ireland.  As a Process Worker, I have practiced for over ten years in working with individuals, couples and groups in the role of therapist.  I continually strive to integrate Process Work into my mainstream role of health care, which has been an essential ‘backbone’ in facilitating diversity in my mainstream role and personal practice.
