Introduction to Psychotherapy Training

AGIP’s training was established in 1974 and has been shaped by a commitment to making psychotherapy widely accessible and a recognition that no single theoretical model can do justice to the complexity and variety of those who seek it. The training was reviewed and relaunched in 2015.

AGIP is a member organisation of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) through the College of Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA) which is the body setting the standards for all UKCP trainings in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Successful completion of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy training leads to professional membership of AGIP and inclusion on the UKCP register for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists (CPJA membership).


The training meets the exacting standards of the UKCP and CPJA. The courses are taught at postgraduate level.

The Foundation course will run monthly over ten Saturdays from September to July in 2024/25. The Clinical Psychoanalytic Training will run monthly over ten weekends (Saturday and Sunday) from October to July in 2024/25: this seminar course lasts three years.

All courses will be held at 1 Fairbridge Road, Archway, London N19 3EW.
