Full non-Clinical Membership

The non-clinical membership category is for individuals who have been full-clinical members of UKCP for more than five years but who are no longer engaged in relevant clinical practice. For example, for those whose current work is moving away from clinical practice and towards teaching, supervision, or other psychotherapeutic roles. Non-clinical members are required to meet annual CPD requirements but are not required to undertake a 5-yearly re-accreditation process.

This category of membership is open to applicants who are, or who are intending to become, full non-clinical members of UKCP registered with the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA) as either ‘Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist’ or ‘Psychodynamic Psychotherapist’.

Applicants who hold a valid European Certificate of Psychotherapy  may also be eligible for full non-clinical membership, click here for details.

FiP’s non-clinical membership is aligned to that of UKCP and applicants seeking non-clinical membership should refer also to UKCP Non-Clinical Membership Terms and Conditions.
