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.

Site members continue to offer psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy which reflects the philosophy of the organisation. Site members embody a critical reading of psychoanalysis as a project from the late 19th century to the present day, its links to European philosophy, feminist theory and race theory, and engage with the historical, political, theoretical, and clinical developments within contemporary psychoanalysis which seeks to acknowledge the socio-cultural specificity of the individual’s experience. We offer a UKCP-certified training in the key concepts and history of psychoanalysis (including for example Freud, Lacan, Bion and Object-Relations) which many of our members themselves took part in. Members and trainees are not required to adopt a single theoretical model in order to practice psychoanalysis, but the organisation sees thinking critically, and thinking otherwise, about psychoanalysis as a strength. Everyone who sees their work as part of the psychoanalytic project is encouraged to apply.

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