The Association of Jungian Analysts is a London-based organisation promoting Analytical Psychology, based on the writings of C. G. Jung and post-Jungian thinkers.

We are known for our original analytical training programme. This integrates classical, archetypal and developmental approaches to Jungian Psychology to support contemporary clinical practice for todays world.

We also offer a variety of learning events, inviting open conversation and exploration to further develop Jungian thought.

Our members are accredited Jungian Analysts with the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and regulated by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) or/ and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

Liz Grant, AJA Chair
Welcome from the Chair

As a proud group member of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) since 1977, AJA has been dedicated to upholding the highest standards of Jungian analysis and training. Our headquarters, nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of Delancey Street, Camden, London, serves as a hub for our community of analysts and individuals seeking personal growth through Jungian psychology.

With a focus on rigorous Jungian analytic training that leads to membership in the IAAP, we strive to create a formal yet friendly environment where individuals can embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and psychological exploration. We invite you to explore our website and discover the rich offerings and resources that AJA has to offer.

At AJA, we value the importance of fostering a warm and welcoming atmosphere for those interested in Jungian analysis and its profound potential for personal development. Whether you are a prospective candidate looking to embark on our training program or an individual seeking insights into your own psyche, our website serves as a gateway to a community of experienced analysts who are passionate about facilitating growth and understanding.

We invite you to engage with our content, explore our training opportunities, and discover the transformative power of Jungian psychology within a supportive and inclusive environment. We look forward to accompanying you on your journey of exploration and self-discovery.

Post Qualification Jungian Analytic Training

Are you a qualified therapist who is interested in training as a Jungian analyst? The AJA training is for you.

The AJA Jungian Analytic Training for Qualified Psychotherapists is unique in the UK as it is designed specifically for psychotherapists who have completed their original training yet sense their therapeutic approach is incomplete. AJA has successfully trained many Jungian analysts working within the UK or internationally. We support people learning with us to discover a voice of one’s own within a supportive community of colleagues.

Our programme is structured to integrate classical, archetypal and developmental approaches to Jungian Psychology and is informed by Jungian and Post-Jungian theory and practice. It is carefully designed to build on learning from initial psychotherapy trainings and not repeat them. There is continued emphasis on contemporary themes and new ideas that are relevant to the provision of analytically informed practice today. The training also draws on research into clinical methods and developments in related disciplines. Successful completion of the programme leads to membership of AJA and the IAAP.

Applications are invited from psychotherapists registered with UKCP or BPC (or equivalent). Each application is considered individually. Most applicants will meet the following criteria. If you have some, but not all of the following, please contact the chair of training to discuss your application:

Open Letter on the Question of Jung’s Writings & Theories About ‘Africans’

Thirty years ago, the British Journal of Psychotherapy published a paper by Dr Farhad Dalal entitled ‘Jung: A racist’ (Dalal, 1988). Regrettably, no adequate acknowledgement or apology for what Jung wrote, and Dalal critiqued, has been forthcoming from the field of analytical psychology and Jungian analysis. We write now as a group of individuals – Jungian analysts, clinicians, and academics utilizing concepts from analytical psychology – to end the silence.
