The Society formed in 1980 and arose out of discussions about how people might best be educated for the work of psychotherapy. Early on we acquired the formal name of Cambridge Society for Psychotherapy. More commonly we have always been known, affectionately, as the ‘Outfit’. Originally coined, somewhat jokingly, as an in-house anti-name, this escaped into general usage. We became members of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College (CPJA) of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) in 1990.
