AGIP is committed to a broad, pluralist approach to psychoanalysis and analytical psychology, drawing on the major approaches to the theory and practice of psychoanalysis and analytical psychology. The clinical training equips members to work in private practice and in the public and voluntary sectors.
Trainees are encouraged to develop a critical and creative approach to their work within the field and to become competent, self-aware psychoanalytic psychotherapists or Jungan analysts. They acquire theoretical knowledge, sound clinical skills, and an ethical and professional approach to practice.

UKCP/CPJA Five-yearly review of AGIP and apptraining
All UKCP organisations are reviewed every five years by a team comprising UKCP and, for AGIP, officers from the College of Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA) through which AGIP members join the UKCP register. The latest review report (November 2018) states:
- “As a Training organisation, AGIP offers a distinctive psychoanalytic psychotherapy training programme developed around a dynamic play of their core principles: pluralism and synthesis. Within the framework of a range of psychoanalytic theories, trainees and therapists are encouraged and supported in finding a unique, theoretical synthesis to respond to the unique, psychological complexity of each patient who comes for treatment. This comparative approach fosters an attitude of receptive openness on the one hand and critical, differentiated thinking on the other.”
- “The Foundation and Clinical Courses are both well-structured and supported for personal development and therapeutic training, encouraging a healthy, creative interface between these two aspects of the Training Programme. An on-going personal tutor system and experiential, therapy group comprising both students and trainees act as a natural bridge facilitating the transition from foundation to clinical training for those who choose to continue after the first year.”
- “In all respects, AGIP’s ‘4 Year Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training’ course meets and often exceeds all CPJA training course criteria.”
- “The review team recognises a lot of work has gone into the new AGIP training and structures. The challenge of managing and holding the transition has been done well and with integrity enabling a healthy, creative experience of change for everyone – members, trainees and students.”
