About Us

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.

We have approximately 60 members and no more than 30 trainees at any one time (in two separate training groups and joint training weekends) who may participate in the governance structure of the organisation and social activities such as annual winter and summer parties, our own conferences and workshops.

We are a Registered Charity, No. 1084537 and a Company, Limited by Guarantee, No. 03978291.
