Psychodynamic or Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists
To work as a member of a small team offering psychodynamic psychotherapy assessment and treatment, working with a range of interventions and working into the wider organisation and community.
We are a diverse organisation. At present we are seeking to expand our membership. We are particularly seeking representation in South and East London.
The Inner City Centre, founded in 1981, is an organisation of around 50 qualified psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapists, all of whom are members of the BPC or the UKCP Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA). The organisation was originally set up to provide affordable psychoanalytic psychotherapy to people in the City of London and the East End. This ethos remains a guiding principle for its current membership.
Members work in ICC consulting rooms in the City and in their own consulting rooms across London. Patients are referred to members via an accessible and professional referral service run by two Referral Therapists. Most patients are offered open-ended individual therapy but there is also an ICC analytic group run by a member of the ICC. We also offer various models of time-limited therapy and couple therapy.
Members are expected to take on a variety of cases, with at least two low-fee patients in their caseload at any one time. The annual membership subscription is £200 and referral fees are payable for each patient who remains in treatment. The ICC maintains patient statistics, currently using the CORE evaluation system.
The ICC is a registered charity. It is managed by an elected Council of Member Trustees and some External Trustees. Publicity, fund-raising, professional development, and membership matters are all run by members. As well as supporting the provision of affordable psychotherapy, members are asked to be active in the life of the ICC. There are various ways of contributing to the running of the organisation and prospective members will be invited to discuss how they might do this when applying to join.
The membership organises CPD events, including peer supervision, a reading group, and clinical forums. Mentoring and supervision can also be arranged for newly-qualified members. There are also social events, fund-raising events, and communication between members through an online forum.www.icclondon.org.ukFor further information please see our website:
