UPDATE: We are currently unable to accept new referral requests for those seeking to access therapy via our Training Patient Scheme. As we are a small organisation and unable to maintain a waiting list, we recommend that you revisit this page for updates on availability at the beginning of November when we hope to have more availability.
Please note: we do not offer an emergency service so if matters are urgent you should contact your local NHS Emergency Mental Health helpline.
The Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy is a Member Institute of the British Psychoanalytic Council, who accredit our well established training courses.
Our Training Patient Scheme offers the opportunity to access psychotherapy at reduced rates with therapist in training. Trainees are at an advanced stage of training, and are supervised by senior members of SIP who are approved training supervisors. 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.
