UPDATE 11/07/2019: Due to the volume of requests, we are currently unable to accept referrals for those looking to work with a therapist in training and recommend that you contact us again at the beginning of September when we hope to have more availability.


The Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy is a Member Institute of the British Psychoanalytic Council, who accredit our well established trainings.

The therapy is offered by trainees at an advanced stage of training, and are supervised by senior members of SIP who are approved training supervisors.

We offer an opportunity for people to have therapy at a reduced fee with a psychotherapist in training. There are two options:

  • Intensive psychoanalytic psychotherapy

This scheme is for individuals who are looking for – and can commit to – three times weekly sessions for a minimum of two years

  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy

This is for individuals who are looking for – and can commit to – once or twice weekly therapy for a minimum of one year.


Further Information:

If you are interested in therapy within the Training Patient Scheme please contact our administrator using the contact form below or by telephone on 0117 927 3898.

Please note that the office is staffed Tuesday – Friday; if the Administrator is not available please do leave a message and we will endeavour to call you back as soon as possible.
