Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis

The CPJA is a College of the UK Council for Psychotherapy. It has an individual membership of over 1800 practitioners and brings together 30 Organisational Members, most of which offer training courses. It is the largest organisation of psychodynamic, psychoanalytic and Jungian psychotherapists in the UK.

What kind of psychotherapy do CPJA members offer?

All members of the CPJA believe that unconscious processes shape our behaviour and our lives. Broadly speaking this means that we don’t know as much about ourselves as we think we do.

The unconscious is, as the word suggests, ‘un’-conscious but manifests in dreams, symptoms and patterns of behaviour. Often we know these patterns are damaging to our selves and others, but we feel powerless to change them. More positively, the unconscious is also a source of creativity and imagination.

Members of the CPJA work with people with a very wide range of concerns, such as depression, anxiety, sexual and relationship problems, conflicts at work or in education, and loss of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. However, it is not necessary to have a specific problem but simply desire to undertake a journey of discovery. Read more here.
