ADULT REFERRALS
The Institute of Psychoanalysis Adult Clinical Services comprises the London Clinic, which offers a service only in London and the Clinic Service North, based in Leeds and covering the Yorkshire area and sometimes more widely (please enquire).
Consultation generally consists of two meetings.

Consultation fees:
• London Clinic of Psychoanalysis
o First appointment £120 (lower fee for those on low income of £30)
o Second appointment £80 (lower fee for those with low income of £20)

• Clinical Service North
o First appointment £75 (lower fees accepted for those with limited income to a minimum of £30)
o Second appointment £50 (lower fee for those on low income of £20)

The Institute of Psychoanalysis Clinical Services (incorporating the London Clinic and Clinical Service North) offer a low fee scheme whereby a limited number of low fee places in psychoanalysis are available to those recommended following a Clinic consultation. The location of analysis may be at the Clinic or the analyst’s private consulting room.

Frequency: Five times weekly 50-minute sessions for a period of at least two years.
Fee: Patients will pay what is discussed and agreed with their analyst according to individual circumstances. We suggest a minimum of £5 per session but patients are not excluded for financial reasons and if this presents difficulty, lower fees can be negotiated. Patients agree to pay what they can reasonably afford and this is reviewed annually.
