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 psychodynamic psychotherapy and hold membership with the relevant Member Institution, will be eligible to register with the BPC as a psychodynamic psychotherapist.
Psychodynamic psychotherapists are trained to work once or twice weekly, generally with the patient sitting in a chair. The work is about making conscious the unconscious and uses the patient-therapist relationship as the focus. There may be more of an emphasis on everyday life and outside experiences.
