About the training
Outline of the training in existential-analytic psychotherapy:
The programme is designed for those individuals who wish to meet the requirements for professional accreditation by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. Besides private practice, the programme is also designed to meet the needs of professionals and public, private and voluntary organisations. More specifically, our aims are:
The training is normally a 4-5 year training depending on when the student is ready to progress to registration as an existential-analytic psychotherapist.
In each of the training years, three assignments are required, usually based on a trainee’s case study, each of approximately 2500 words (with the exception of year 3, which is one assignment of 7500 words). Trainees will be required to pass these and meet the attendance, personal therapy, supervision and clinical practice requirements in order to progress to the subsequent year.
Process for progression to registration as a psychotherapist with UKCP
The portfolio is submitted to the training committee as part of the requirements for professional accreditation with UKCP. The student also undertakes a verbal presentation, of their two year client, to the learning community.
