Northern Ireland Psychoanalytic Society
Consultation and Referral Service
The Northern Ireland Psychoanalytic Society (NIPaS) is an organisation of psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists based in Belfast. Founded in 1988, it was originally called the Northern Ireland Association for the Study of Psychoanalysis (NIASP).
The name was changed in 2019 following our admission as a Study Group of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) in 2018. Study Group status means that we can now offer a full psychoanalytic training, having run a successful psychoanalytic psychotherapy training for almost thirty years. The Society’s ambition is to become a Component Society of the IPA in the next few years.
The Society has had charitable status from its early years, and acts on a non-profit basis. The fundamental aim of the Northern Ireland Psychoanalytic Society is to contribute to the improvement of the mental health and well-being of the citizens of Northern Ireland by fostering a psychoanalytic understanding of the mind and psychic development through education and treatment, clinical training and outreach, clinical consultancy and academic research to the highest international standards.

Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists
The Private Psychotherapy Service
For 100 years, the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has been at the forefront of bringing new approaches to treating patients who are in mental distress. We are internationally recognised as an expert in the health, charity, voluntary and private sectors and are proud to have developed and delivered ground breaking mental health services that make a real difference to communities. Working with children and families and adults, our approach brings together psychoanalytic, psychodynamic and systemic theory and practice and other approaches and seeks to understand the unconscious as well as conscious aspects of a person’s experience.
Parallel to providing a wide range of clinical services, the Trust trains over 2000 students each year through our established Directorate of Education and Training. Our students are based in London at the Tavistock Centre and across the UK and Europe with our carefully selected partners. Our relevant courses are accredited and recognised by the main professional bodies in the mental health sector, including the BPC. Our creative and skilled clinical staff also deliver our teaching so the education that our students receive is relevant and indicative of services and models of care which respond to contemporary challenges.
