Welcome to our Website!

The IPSS was founded in 1978 as a psychotherapy training centre. It is also an accrediting member organisation of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Within our psychoanalytic approach we recognise the diverse nature of society and the need to address the social, political and cultural contexts that affect the individual.

IPSS is also a thriving members’ organisation with regular members’ and public events.
