The Bowlby Centre

The Bowlby Centre provides a UKCP accredited training in Attachment Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, which combines psychoanalytic, inter-subjective, and attachment based approaches, within an environment in which difference is both celebrated and analysed in relation to the wider social and political milieu. 

We are committed to inclusiveness and celebration of diversity and throughout the training we encourage our trainees to explore their own experience of, and the implications of societal dynamics around, difference. Our seminars take place on two evenings a week for three terms each year and there are monthly clinical forums where case studies are discussed by practising psychotherapists. We provide a referrals service with standard rate and low cost psychotherapy - those interested are welcome to contact us.

We also offer short courses suitable for CPD and are in the process of designing a 1 - 2 year supplementary training course for established and accredited psychotherapists and counsellors.
