Welcome to AGIP

The Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy was founded in 1974 to establish a new psychotherapy training and as a professional association of psychoanalytic psychotherapists. It now has members working in London, the rest of the UK and in Europe.

Psychotherapy Services

AGIP’s Psychotherapy Services are well established in North London. We offer consultations, assessments and referrals for ongoing psychotherapy and a low-fee psychotherapy scheme, the Fairbridge Clinic.

Thinking about training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy?

The Alliance of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Trainings (APPT) is a collaboration of two established psychotherapy organisations: the Arbours Association and AGIP have pooled their experience and expertise and in October 2015 launched a joint training.  APPT offers two linked courses and holds Open Days from January each year for anyone thinking about training as a psychotherapist.

Open Days 2017

  • Sunday 29 January - 2pm
  • Sunday 5 March - 11am
  • Sunday 9 April - 11 am

This web site only has outline details of these courses, for full details see the course website at psychotherapytraining.co.

Recruitment - APPT Training Manager

APPT is a new organisation founded in 2015 as a collaboration between the Training Committees of the Arbours Association (AA) and the Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy (AGIP), in which the strengths and experiences of both organisations are pooled to form a Joint Training Committee (JTC) administering a joint training.

Having had a successful first Foundation Year in 2015 / 2016, we were oversubscribed for this year’s Foundation Year and the new Clinical Course which both started in September 2016.

We are therefore now looking for a Training Manager to oversee this exciting new project, and help to develop it further. The closing date is 28 November 2016. Interviews will be held on 8 December 2016
