coronavirus outbreak and your application for psychotherapy at the bpf

“Due to the present circumstances, the process of offering assessment consultations & referrals to the low fee service, mid fee service and general Clinical Services are significantly delayed. 

In addition, our usual clinical services will be temporarily limited as will shall not be available to answer phones calls in the office because we are working remotely. This is due to the recent Government guidelines concerning non-essential social contact, travel restrictions, the need for social isolation and social distancing. 

We are very sorry for any trouble this may cause and appreciate the impact that this may have on you.

We will be placing regular updates on the bpf website and hope to resume our regular service as soon as we can. Please feel free to email us should you need further information. We thank you for your patience in these difficult circumstances, and want to reassure you that we are doing all we can.”

mid fee intensive therapy

Subject to availability the bpf offers mid fee Intensive Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Jungian Analysis and Psychoanalysis. Mid fee vacancies can range from £25 to £45 per session -  subject to financial circumstances. Vacancies are for three times weekly. The therapy is offered by qualified members of the bpf.

application process

  • You will need to complete and return a questionnaire (available from our Clinical Services Officer)

There is an administration fee of £60 as part of the application process, payable directly to the bpf.

  • You will be offered a consultation with a Senior Therapist, if appropriate.

This consultation will offer you the opportunity to find out more about your psychotherapeutic needs and whether psychotherapy is a suitable treatment for you. There is a charge of £90 for this one off consultation. If two meetings are required the total will be £120.

  • Once you have had a consultation, if appropriate, you will be referred to a bpf therapist as soon as possible. You will not be seen for ongoing therapy by the therapist who offered you the assessment consultation

If it is decided that this is not the best form of treatment for you other options will be suggested. We do our best to accommodate individual needs with regards to location and times available for therapy.
