Providing excellence in advanced learning

Internship opportunities at the Argyle

Our Internship Program accommodates trainees from several universities and is recognized by the OPQ. Under the directorship of Maria- Luisa Alejos, the Argyle has significantly increased the number of interns we welcome each year. In the Winter of 2022, We will be launching the Theory Course in the Humanistic approach.

Internship programs include:

This program gives the student a solid theoretical and clinical base in the practice of long-term psychotherapy with a Psychodynamic orientation.

Systemic Psychotherapy understands human problems and behaviour in a contextual framework and seeks to shift the current dynamics of individual, couple and family relationships.

Interning at the Argyle was one of the best experiences of my Master’s Degree and was by far the most valuable experience for developing my skills as a clinician. As a result of this experience, I have chosen to stay on at the Argyle and continue their psychodynamic psychotherapy training program.
