Jeremy Clarke CBE, Chair of Trustees for APPPS, says: 

We are delighted to introduce our new Editorial team for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. We are  immensely proud of our journal, and the work that Paul has done with Jessica Yakeley and  Arabella Kurtz already, establishing it as a leading resource for clinicians in publicly funded  settings. Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is widely seen as being at the cutting edge of thinking and research in contemporary psychoanalysis. It addresses pressing clinical concerns in the real  world; it advances new psychoanalytic theories; and it engages with policy making and its impact  on our discipline in mental health. Under Paul’s leadership, and with Golan joining us, we aim to  build on this platform for expanding our reach and impact internationally, as well as in the UK.  This is the start of an exciting new phase for our Journal and its unique value for our discipline.


Instead of taking half in October and half in April, we have decided to take the whole sub (£80, unchanged) at the start of our financial year, in January.
You’ll see the entry as ˜GoCardless’.
