The Camden Psychotherapy Unit is a charity providing free and low fee psychoanalytic psychotherapy. We are a busy service which is very much in demand, particularly amongst people on low incomes, as the kind of long term help which we offer can otherwise be very hard to access.
We see adults of all ages, but we are particularly grateful to have been awarded this grant by the Pixel Fund, which will support us very substantially in our work for younger people in the 18-25 age range.
We believe in offering people the opportunity for long term (up to two years) psychotherapy, because for many that is the only way to effect meaningful change for psychological problems which are often deep rooted. This applies with particular force to younger people, who can benefit profoundly from the right kind of therapeutic intervention. If the work is successful, it is no exaggeration to say that it can have a far-reaching effect on the course of their adult lives.
