Become a Member
There are two membership types:- General Member and Accredited Member.
Accredited psychotherapists are trained and experienced practitioners working within a psychoanalytical framework. They may also have some additional expertise in other approaches or specialisms, and have typically practiced in public and private settings with a range of clients.
Accredited members are bound by the Code of Ethics of the Institute and of the UKCP and support practice that is sensitive to culture, diversity and difference.
For Accredited Membership there is an £250.00 application fee to cover administration and interview costs, which must be sent with the application documents. If membership is confirmed, the yearly subscription fee for accredited membership of the Hallam Institute is currently £180.00. If found to meet the Accreditation Criteria, accredited members are then eligible for UKCP Registration as a ‘Psychoanalytic and/or Psychodynamic Psychotherapist’ which then can apply for via the UKCP website. For those interested in Accredited Membership, our Accreditation Procedure, Policy and Criteria can be found on our policy page which details the application process.
General members of the Hallam Institute can be involved in our community and can participate in the running of the Institute. They are also eligible for a members discount to our regular CPD events. General Members are not required to abide by the Code of Ethics and being a General Member of the Hallam Institute of Psychotherapy does not constitute a professional qualification. There are three categories of general member as described below. If you are interested in joining us a general member, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form or more information.
