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.
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.

AGIP member Lindsay Wells has been interviewed by the Freud Museum . It is an audio podcast interview about the background environment to his novel, which he wrote under the pen name of William Rose. It deals with fin de siècle Paris, centred on the Salpêtrière Hospital, where thousands of 'hysterical' patients were treated and where a comparatively young Freud studied under the charismatic Professor Jean-Martin Charcot. The title of the novel is 'The Strange Case of Madeleine Seguin'. The link to the podcast interview is: http://podcast.freud.org.uk/e/the-strange-case-of-madeleine-seguin/
