Training Courses in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Full details on how to apply, application forms and notes for candidates can be found on the apptraining website at

Below is an abridged set of notes for candidates. For the full notes, visit the apptraining website.

The demands of a psychoanalytic psychotherapy training are such that require a certain level of life experience, maturity and evidence of self-awareness. In the interests of ensuring the best training experience, AGIP, in general, welcomes applicants for its clinical training who are at least 25 years old. However, we do not have a blanket rule as we recognise that the life experience and preparedness for the rigours of the training of individual applicants will vary and in exceptional circumstances are open to accepting as trainees applicants below this age.

You are responsible for passing the reference forms to your referees who in turn post them back. It can sometime be difficult to find referees who have known you professionally for at least three years – if you can’t find such a referee then contact the administration at AGIP to talk through the options.

apptraining charges an application fee which covers the initial administration and interview fee. For the foundation course this is £75 and for the clinical training it is £150. These fees are non-refundable.

Applications for the clinical training close on 15th May 2023, and for the foundation course, 30th June 2023. Late applications will only be considered if there are still places.
