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.

In Conversation with Deborah Levy

We are very pleased to announce the writer Deborah Levy will be joining Douglas Gill and Liz Guild to talk about her acclaimed novel Hot Milk, and the writing of it.
In this poetic and savage novel we encounter Sofia, beloved, beheaded, and Rose, the mother she has waited on and for all her life. They have come to torrid Spain in search of a cure. For what?
