How can I find a psychotherapist?

SIP has many members in Bristol and Bath and some therapists in the adjoining counties. For more information please see the ‘Find a therapist‘ page.

Depending on availability, we may be able to offer psychotherapy at a reduced fee with a psychotherapist in training. To find out more see the ‘Training Patient Scheme‘ page.

What if I have a complaint?

SIP psychotherapists are bound by the Code of Ethics of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). If you believe that an SIP psychotherapist has broken this Code of Ethics, you can make a complaint through the BPC. Visit the ‘Complaints‘ page of the BPC website for more information.
