About

Our graduates go on to a number of different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use their time with us to deepen their understanding

We also offer an MPhil in this subject.
