Associate Membership

If you’re looking to develop your knowledge of psychotherapy, without committing to formal study, the bpf Associate Membership will help.

Access resources that enrich and inform

The Associate Membership is ideal for individuals without any prior experience, or qualifications in psychotherapy, who wish to learn more in their own time.

Associate Membership is also for anyone seeking to deepen understanding of psychotherapy, having previously undertaken casual reading around the area. With access to a blend of psychotherapy resources, events and our respected British Journal of Psychotherapy, the bpf Associate Membership is the perfect option for anyone wanting to undertake informal learning at their own pace.

With the Associate Membership, I can learn about psychotherapy when I want.
