About us

The East Anglian Psychotherapy Network was founded in 2019 by a group of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapists who recognised the sparsity and isolation of practitioners in many parts of the region. Outside the main cities of East Anglia, practitioners are few and public access to psychotherapy is poor.


The EAPN is committed to connecting and uniting existing clinicians and other professionals who will foster and encourage future generations of therapists to meet the needs of this large and geographically diverse area.

Audience and Lecturer

Our vision

is to see an excellent standard of psychotherapy available for everyone.


Our Mission

Is to achieve this through:

  • fostering communication and support between professionals

  • sharing knowledge and experience,

  • providing platforms for the delivery of education, training and professional support

  • the holding of events and conferences

  • links with psychoanalytic and psychodynamic training providers who are interested in expanding their reach into East Anglia

  • relationships with mental health organisations such as Heads Together, Mind and the NHS



Who are our members?

Though primarily intended for those working clinically with patients as psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapists, the EAPN also welcomes people in related disciplines and professions for whom psychoanalytic theory and discourse is of substantial interest, whether in a clinical, academic or applied context.
Current membership includes:

  • Psychoanalysts and Jungian Analysts

  • Psychoanalytic psychotherapists

  • Psychodynamic counsellors and psychotherapists

  • Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists

  • Psychiatrists

  • Group Analysts

  • Couple and Psychosexual counsellors and psychotherapists

  • Clinical psychologists

  • Medical practitioners



Many of our members work full-time or part-time in the NHS or in other organisations, while most members work at least some of their time in private practice in East Anglia, providing therapy, consultation and supervision. Many will have a contingency for low-fee therapy or a sliding-scale that enables effective therapy at an affordable rate for people of limited means.

Members vary in the intensity and type of training they have done and the therapy they offer, corresponding to the very varied level of therapeutic work that communities and individuals may need.  

The Network also welcomes those who are newly qualified and individuals who are still in a professional training and so offers a collegiate home in the region for those who will provide psychotherapeutic resources for the future in East Anglia.

The East Anglian Psychotherapy Network is a non-profit making society.  Revenues (e.g. from Conference booking fees) are channelled back into activities directly consistent with the primary aims of the Network. The administration of the EAPN is currently devolved to a Planning Group comprised of Members who give their time voluntarily.
