About Us

Group Analysis India came into existence in 2017 as a response to a community’s desire to have professional psychotherapy training in India. At the time of inception, this community was formed of young mental health professionals working at Hank Nunn Institute. Today, it is a growing community with a few mental health professionals joining every year as they start their Foundation Year in Group Analysis. Group Analysis India is locally represented by Hank Nunn Institute (HNI). HNI is proud to be the first Institute in India to offer an internationally recognized training in Group Analytic Psychotherapy. 

Our goal is to set up the Indian Community of Group Analysis and become a full-time member of the European Group Analytic Training Institutions Network (EGATIN) which requires five individuals to qualify. 

Institute of Group Analysis (IGA), London and Hank Nunn Institute (HNI) have initiated this process by collaborating to offer the first ever internationally recognized training in Group Analytic Psychotherapy in India. They are offering a staged 5+ year clinical training starting in August, 2020. The full training eventually leads to the internationally recognized qualification and title, ‘Group Analyst’. Those successfully completing the training will receive the IGA International Diploma in Group Analysis from the IGA (UK).

Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) was founded over fifty years ago in the UK. It is a charitable organisation which provides training in Group Analytic psychotherapy in the UK and internationally. The IGA is a full organisational member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and an affiliate organisational member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). Its core Qualifying Courses are accredited by the UKCP.

Hank Nunn Institute (HNI) was founded by Shama Parkhe and Anando Chatterji in July 2014. HNI aims to increase access to psychotherapy, fight the dogma inherent in the biomedical model of mental health, and involve service users in all aspects of their therapeutic process. HNI uses a threefold approach wherein they develop carefully designed treatment programs, engage with the local community to create awareness, and offer academic and experiential training programs, all in their effort to create a sustainable community model to address the mental health needs in India.
