Please note: we do not offer an emergency service so if matters are urgent you should contact your local NHS Emergency Mental Health helpline.
SIP has fully qualified and professionally registered psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapists across much of the South West. Many members are based in Bristol and Bath but we also have practitioners in Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Somerset and Wiltshire.
Whilst we are a small organisation, and cannot always guarantee that our members will have vacancies to take on someone new, we do offer a consultation and referral service that enables individuals to discuss suitability for psychotherapy with an experienced therapist.
We also have a limited number of be reduced-fee vacancies, predominantly with trainees following SIP’s clinical trainings in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy. All psychotherapists in training are mature individuals often with several years of prior training and experience. They are rigorously selected, continuously assessed, and regularly supervised by approved training supervisors to ensure the highest standards. Those interested in working with a trainee should visit the Training Patient Scheme page for more information.
