An Introduction to Analytical Psychotherapy Course

A CPD Course to Explore Concepts of Analytical Psychotherapy

We are offering a new introductory course, commencing in September 2019. This comes in response to numerous enquiries from people who are keen to engage with principles of analytical psychotherapy but who do not wish to start a qualifying training at this point. 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.

It will take place in Central Birmingham on Thursday evenings 5pm - 7pm in 2 x 10 week blocks.
