An Introduction to Analytical Psychotherapy Course

A CPD Course to Explore Concepts of Analytical Psychotherapy

We are intending to run our next introductory course, commencing in September 2020. This comes as a result of a successful initial course which finished in May 2020.

The programme is aimed at people with little or no psychological experience but who are keen to engage with the principles of analytical psychotherapy. The course will be a true introduction to depth psychotherapy and will span both psychoanalytic and Jungian traditions, with teachers coming from backgrounds reflecting this diversity.


This short CPD earning course is designed for those curious about psychoanalytic and Jungian analytic concepts and the practice of analytical psychotherapy

Attendees are likely to include counsellors, clinical psychologists, mental health practitioners, teachers, current analysts and other professionals in a relateddiscipline such as social work, medicine. But applicants from all backgrounds are welcome
