All BPC accredited trainings consist of academic teaching, clinical work and personal psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Find out more about the training components on our page about how we accredit trainings.
Once qualified, those who have undertaken a training in psychoanalysis and hold membership with the relevant Member Institution, will be eligible to register with the BPC as a psychoanalyst.
Psychoanalysts are trained to work with their patient four or five times a week, usually with the patient on a couch. The work is about making conscious the unconscious and uses the patient-therapist relationship as a way to work through issues of everyday life.
See below psychoanalytic trainings that are currently accredited by us, with links to their website to find out more about the training content, structure, fees, eligibility requirements and the application process.
