Psychotherapy Training

Accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the Association Of Child Psychotherapists (ACP), bpf courses provide rigorous, thorough training in psychotherapy for every level of learner. The bpf is based in London (Kilburn) however some of our courses can be studied online or in a hybrid mode.

Skills for every journey

From the complete beginner, to the highly experienced psychotherapist, our courses support individuals at every stage of their learning journey. 

Study with the psychotherapy experts

Our team of teaching staff is made up of professional psychotherapists from Jungian, psychoanalytic and child and adolescent psychotherapy disciplines. Respected specialists in their areas, many of the team have their own thriving private practices.

This course exceeded all my expectations, and sufficiently impressed and enthused me to consider a future career in psychotherapy. On a personal level it has changed me; something that has been accelerated by beginning my own personal analysis. I find myself thinking about non-verbal communications much more as a consequence of having attended the course.
