How to join FiP

Membership of FIP, a UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) Organisational Member (OM), confers CPD and peer-group benefits.

It also confers eligibility to register with the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA)  college of the UKCP.

Can I join FIP immediately?

If your training was as a child / adolescent psychotherapist FIP membership is not available to you as we only accept adult psychotherapists for membership. Neither can we accredit you to UKCP.

Otherwise Membership is available for

  • Current members of UKCP who qualified in psychoanalytic Psychotherapy or Jungian analysis via a training accredited by the College of Psychoanlysis and Jungian Analysis, OR
  • Current members of BCP  registered with either body as a psychoanalysts or psychoanalytic psychotherapists or Jungian analysts

Eligibility can only be confirmed on submission of a completed application form.

I don’t seem to be eligible – what should I do?

You may already have accumulated a personal portfolio of academic and clinical experience which meets the requisite standards. Or you may come from other colleges/sections of the UKCP and have additionally fulfilled the requirements for psychoanalytic practice.

If this sounds like you, then you can begin the accreditation process: please start here
