The C.G. Jung Institute Low-Fee Referral Service


For over four decades the C. G. Jung Institute of New York has provided a personalized, confidential referral service to the New York/tri-state community. The service offers referrals to individuals seeking reduced-fee Jungian psychoanalytic psychotherapy conducted by students training at the Institute. All students have Masters or Doctoral degrees and are under the supervision of licensed Jungian Analysts. Starting in September of 2022, all reduced-fee sessions will be conducted in person at the Institute building on East 39th Street in Manhattan. We will no longer provide reduced-fee treatment via phone or video.


The Low-Fee Referral Service offers a range of services that includes:
  • Jungian psychoanalytic psychotherapy, providing, in addition to relief from symptoms, a broader understanding of the issues in our lives and an increased sense of basic aliveness through fostering individuation and psychological growth
  • Treatment of specific conditions and issues:
    • Specific Conditions: depression, anxiety, self-image, inhibitions, posttraumatic stress
    • Adjustment Concerns:  religious concerns, sexual orientation, aging and elder care issues, parental concerns, vocational decisions and stress, mid-life conflicts, relationship difficulties, and other issues
  • Personal growth and spiritual development
  • Multi-lingual psychotherapy (in certain languages)


Fees are based on a sliding scale and range from $50 to $100 per session based on your income and resources.

An non-refundable application fee of $75 will be required once your application has been received and you have been contacted to schedule an intake interview. At that point the fee can be paid through PayPal at: PayPal.Me/cgjunginstituteofny. Please indicate your name and that the payment is for the Low Fee Referral Service Application when you make your payment. 

If you have specific practical questions regarding the application process, you may contact the Referral Service at (212) 867-8461.

Once the application and fee are received, the Coordinator will contact you and arrange an appointment to conduct an initial screening interview to explore whether Jungian analysis would be of help to you, and if so, to determine a good match with an analyst-in-training at the Institute. We might ask you to attend more than one appointment with your intake worker, or to meet with a consulting psychiatrist. These appointments would require additional fees. Every effort is made to ensure that your referral is made considerately and without undue delay.

If you cancel your intake appointment with less than 48 hours notice you will need to pay another $75 application fee to schedule another intake appointment.
