We’re still serving our community.

We continue to run our Consultation & Referral Service for members of the public seeking therapy in these difficult times by offering initial consultations remotely, find out more here.

Covid-19 has had a significant impact on our funding, you can help us continue to support our community by making a donation here.

We’re also collating a list of useful resources for our Members, and the wider therapy community, find out more here.

We are a professional association and training institute for psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapists, based in Bristol, with members throughout the South West of England and Southern Wales.

Our trainings in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy lead to registration with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). We also run introductory and pre-clinical trainings and shorter courses and lectures. We are always happy to talk through which courses or training may be most suitable so please don’t hesitate to contact our Training Coordinator.

We support our active group of members and associates to maintain high standards through providing continuing professional development. Many members link up to form supervision groups or reading groups or to explore challenging issues such as race, culture, sexuality and other areas of potential unconscious discrimination.

Our members are rigorously trained and professionally registered to offer high quality psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. If you are seeking therapy we offer a consultation meeting to explore whether these kinds of therapy may be right for you at this time.

If you have trained elsewhere but wish to join us as a full member or associate, please don’t hesitate to contact us – more information on applying for SIP Membership can be found here.
