Course Summary

The MA in Psychodynamic Couple and Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy is a unique three-year psychotherapy training that qualifies practitioners to work with both couples and individuals.

Tavistock Relationships specializes in couple relationships and is the leading couple therapy centre in London, but many individuals also choose to come to Tavistock Relationships for therapy because at the core of many of the issues or dilemmas seen in the consulting room is often a relationship difficulty of some sort.

Another unique feature of TR’s psychodynamic psychotherapy training is that clinicians receive specific psychosexual training which enables them to work sensitively, knowledgeably and skillfully with this area of the couple’s intimate relationship. Individuals encountering psychosexual and intimacy difficulties may be seen in TR’s clinical service and clinicians are trained in how to help those who may not yet have been able to have a sexual relationship or who have developed difficulties in sustaining one.

The PGDip part of the MA is BACP is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and successful completion of programme MA in Couple & Individual Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy at Tavistock Relationships leads to the award of Master of Arts by the University of East London.
