Tuition and Practical Training
The emphasis is on practical training with a view to setting up in professional practice. The class group is kept small so that we can give adequate help, supervision and guidance to all learners and provide analysis for them. The tuition and seminars are held in Clinics. This helps to give practical training and clinical demonstrations to learners and to familiarise them with clinical work. It also enables learners to meet other professionals in clinical practice.

The amazing discoveries of the preparatory analysis is a unique experience and a privilege. It gives an uplifting pleasant experience to learners. This analysis is a necessary requirement of the learners training for professional practice. It is the first stage of the learners training for professional practice. The essential, beneficial, educative insight and understanding gathered from the amazing experience of the preparatory analysis mirrors the learners ability to cope with the demands of the profession.

The learners are encouraged to undergo the preparatory analysis concurrently with their attendance for tuition. In this way they are more able to see the links between the practical findings of the preparatory analysis and their theoretical studies. Alternatively an arrangement may be made to fit the preparatory analysis at a suitable time for the learner during the training period. The fee for the preparatory analysis with our own training analyst is £35 per session. Learners who prefer to choose their own analysts and pay whatever fee the analysts charge are allowed to do so provided a report of the analysis is provided to at the end of each session of analysis.

In the final year of the course, learners who have made excellent progress, both in their theoretical work and preparatory analysis, throughout their training, will be invited to take part, under supervision, in the treatment of a client. The colossal benefits of this experience will remain with the learners throughout their professional career. The treatment is held in the Clinics where we hold our lectures and analytical sessions.

Seminars and Written Work
The standard of the course is postgraduate level. However, the course does not presume that the learners have previous knowledge of the subject. The learners are taught from the basic theories and encouraged to have specialist knowledge of the subject. There is an extensive reading list of scientific literature which forms the basis of the teaching material. Teaching is carried out in a small group and on one-to-one. Seminars are arranged often but there are no weekend courses.

There are no annual examinations but learners have individual training agreements (ITA) and regular reviews of their progress on the course and are encouraged to work hard. They are expected to produce three essays of about 3,000 words each per term or one essay of about 5,000 words per term and, are assessed every term on the quality of the essays, their progress on the course, the progress of their preparatory analysis and seminar presentation. The learners who are working on their final research essay are encouraged to present their work in a seminar. In this way they have the benefit of a critical reception of their views before the submission of their final work.

Supervision of Research Work and Clinical Work
Learners are given adequate supervision in their practical, clinical, work with clients and in their mini research work. The final examination is a viva voce on a mini research work of 15,000 words based on the learners own chosen topic of interest within psychotherapy. Learners are given free access to choose their research topic from any area of psychotherapy and given full supervision and guidance in choosing the research topic, the selection of reference materials, and in checking the final draft of the thesis. Learners will be expected to produce this research work after the completion of the course and are given adequate time to do so.
