Please click on Find a therapist if you are thinking of psychotherapy treatment for yourself, or if it’s for your child. If you wish to know more about the kind of psychotherapy we offer, please go to FAQs.
We run introductory and CPD courses in London and in Oxford and Reading, see Wessex. For people interested in learning about psychoanalytic and Jungian analytic approaches to psychotherapy, we run an MSc Programme with Birkbeck College, University of London, which provides a good foundation for BAP’s Professional Training whose programmes are often reviewed to take account of clinical and scientific developments.
As an active member association, we run regular events, such as an annual Open Day for people interested in psychotherapy as a career, and scientific meetings and conferences for clinicians. See the BAP Noticeboard for current details. If you are thinking about professional training, including up to Clinical Doctorate level in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Jungian analysis or in Psychoanalysis, please go to: Training Prospectus or Wessex Training Prospectus, or BPA Psychoanalysis.
