There are sometimes spaces for adults to see a senior trainee on the Analytical Psychotherapy Training: Birmingham ( or the Modified Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy training ( which is run by the Birmingham Trust for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. These are advanced trainings, with trainees based across the Midlands. They are all experienced professionals, from a range of backgrounds including counselling, clinical psychology, medicine, psychiatry, social work and related fields. The MAPT Trainees are also highly trained and experienced Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists.  

Therapy is usually in person and patients need to attend consistently. Trainees work at a range of frequencies: once, twice and three times a week. The therapy would usually be expected to last at least 12 to 24 months.

The fee you would pay depends on your financial circumstances and reflects the trainee’s previous experience and stage of professional development. If you are on a low income, you can discuss this and explore the possibility of a reduced fee.

There will be an assessment process before commencing therapy and a fee will be charged. This is a chance to explore what you are looking for and work out whether it would be helpful for you to have therapy with a trainee.
