Other Courses

Clinical Qualification in Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

This unique four-year programme is a clinical training suitable for people who have had several years of post-qualifying experience in a helping profession such as counselling, psychology, social work or psychiatry. It provides a comprehensive understanding of psychoanalytic theory and techniques as it relates to the adult couple relationship and builds on and deepens the student's existing clinical experience. Clinical work with couples is provided through the Tavistock Relationships' clinical service, some of which is in co-therapy with experienced psychoanalytic couple therapists.

This is the only couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy training that leads to professional membership of the psychoanalytic section of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).

Pre-clinical Course in Couple and Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy

This is our new and unique course developed to prepare students for entry into a clinical training in working with both couples and individuals.

In this intermediary level course, students build on their basic counselling skills and develop a deeper understanding of psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories and concepts with a particular focus on the couple relationship.

By the end of the course, students will have formed an understanding of working therapeutically with couples and individuals in the context of relationships. They will have an understanding of the psychoanalytic theory that underpins this practice, enabling them to decide whether they wish to train for a career in psychotherapy with a specialism in relationships. From here students can apply for a place on one of our clinical training programmes.
