Applying for our Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training

The training offered by The Guild is in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and lasts for a minimum of four years.

The Guild accepts a diverse range of applicants from all kinds of backgrounds. It is a requirement of the course that you should yourself have been in twice-weekly therapy for at least a year at the time of application. The course fee, which is subject to review annually, is currently £2,400 per annum, exclusive of the cost of therapy and supervision.

You are required to include your CV and a cheque for £150 (payable to The Guild of Psychotherapists) to cover the costs of interviews and administration. We also require two referees to send their references to the Senior Administrator at the Guild’s address to arrive as soon as possible after the submission of your application form.

If you have any questions about the training and the application process, please contact the Admissions Secretary, Charlotte Thompson, on 01725 518388. It is also possible to arrange a consultation with a member of the Training Committee for an in-depth discussion about all that is involved in the training programme at a fee of £55.00.

Applications for the training commencing in October 2017 will be accepted in Spring 2017.
