The Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) is the foremost training organisation for group analysis and group work in the UK, and is devoted to promoting a radical  understanding of the dynamic relationship between the individual and the group. Renowned in the field of group psychotherapy, the IGA provides a thorough, rigorous and life enhancing range of opportunities for training and personal development. Our courses are staffed by experienced clinicians, teachers and supervisors and we offer a range of courses leading to qualification as a Group Analyst together with a highly regarded training in group supervision and in reflective practice in organisations

Sarah Tucker
Deputy Director of Training

Completion of a Foundation Course allows students to progress onto the IGA Diploma Courses offered at various national venues, where it is possible to gain a deeper understanding of the principles, practice and applications of group analysis. This course leads to a Diploma in Group Work Practice, the status of IGA Group Work Practitioner and Associate Membership of the IGA.

Qualifying Courses in Group Analysis are offered in London and Manchester. Access to these courses requires that the student undertakes a personal group analysis in a twice weekly (London) or block group (Manchester). 

Bursary Scheme 
The IGA has funds available to financially support students on the Diploma in Group Work Practice and Qualifying courses nationally. 


The IGA is a national organisation and therefore runs courses across the nation.  If you see an interesting workshop or course but cannot make the date or the location you can express your interest informally in the event coming to a place nearer to you or it being repeated on another date.  We will always do our best to set up workshops to meet demand.
You can also let us know about new workshops, courses or training scheduling that you are interested in so that we can consider these for our next training programme season.

To express your interest or to make suggestions contact the Operations Manager, Lykke Leszczynski, on or on 020 7431 2693.

We look forward to hearing from you.
