Welcome to The Site

The SITE for Contemporary Psychoanalysis is a training organisation and a member of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College (CPJA)  of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). All graduates are eligible for UKCP registration.

The Site was established in October 1997 by psychotherapists who wished to create a training programme and an association that would foster critical, reflective and imaginative thinking about psychoanalysis and its contemporary practices.

In 2010 the Site set up a sister training in Truro, Cornwall.  This is now a well established part of the Site, with a successful training, an Introductory course and annual public events.

Talk by Rosemary Rizq: Psychoanalysis in an Age of Transparency

Transparency is deemed central to today’s democratic systems, institutions and services. Our insistence on open government, freedom of information and the public’s right to know privileges not only the visibility of information but also the visibility of the self. How might psychoanalytic practitioners think about and respond to the ever-increasing demand for transparency in the consulting room?
