The British Psychoanalytic Association (BPA) is a Component Society of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA), a worldwide body that safeguards professional and ethical practice.

The BPA became a member in 2006 and commenced its training in 2009. It is the 2nd IPA society in the UK and as such represents an exciting development for psychoanalysis in this country. The BPA not only provides a training in psychoanalysis but also provides scientific and clinical events as well as treatment opportunities through its Low Fee Service.

Psychoanalysis is a psychological therapy based on the observation that individuals are often unaware of many of the factors that determine their emotions and behaviour. It involves exploring how these unconscious factors affect patterns of behaviour and past and current relationships. Through these explorations people are helped to understand better their internal worlds and to lead richer and more fulfilling lives.

Training to become a psychoanalyst is both challenging and rewarding. It can take four to five years and involves a personal training analysis, theoretical and clinical seminars, and the psychoanalytic treatment of two patients, four to five times a week, under supervision.

The BPA is looking for applicants from various backgrounds who are interested in undertaking a training in psychoanalysis and in contributing to the development of this second IPA Society in the UK.
