Application Process

Applicants are asked to complete a detailed questionnaire which is handled with rigorous confidentiality.

If we have a potential vacancy and the responses on the questionnaire suggest Psychoanalysis might be a suitable approach, we will offer a consultation with a Low Fee Service Consultant Assessor. The current one-off fee for this initial consultation is £60, which consists of two assessment interviews at £30 each. If there is agreement to go forward the applicant will be placed on the waiting list for a BPA practitioner in advanced training. On-going fees are negotiable but usually range from £2 - £25 per session. If it emerges during the consultation that the applicant would be best served by another form of treatment this will be discussed and other options suggested
