Training in Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is based upon psychoanalytic theory and practice and derives from knowledge of the unconscious processes that influence the mental life of the individual. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy utilises this knowledge to promote psychological development and to treat and prevent mental suffering, illness and dysfunction in individuals, groups and organisations.
The North of England Association for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (NEAPP) offers an established training in individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults. This training was established in 1992, becoming the first training in England outside London to be accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). The British Psychological Society and the Royal College of Psychiatrists also accredit the course and the NEAPP now has more than 30 clinical members.
Course graduates may expect to use their professional training and qualification as the basis for both autonomous independent practice and a career in the NHS.
