Balint Society Membership

We are still working to find a satisfactory system to take recurring payments online so when you complete this form and pay, this gives you your first year of membership only. When we have our system in place to take recurring payments, we will let you know so this can be set up. In the meantime we welcome your application.

Please note that you do not need to have a Paypal account to pay by card. Click on the Paypal option and you will be offered a link to payment by credit or debit card.

Join The Balint Society

Application for Ordinary Membership will be considered from any person working in a one to one setting with patients or clients, in a therapeutic relationship, who pays the Society’s membership fees. Membership includes a copy of the annual Journal, a discount on fees for residential weekends and the right to vote at the Annual General Meeting.

Application from students undertaking their initial professional training in any branch of healthcare is especially welcome, at a reduced fee of just £5.00 per annum.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer and tick the Gift Aid declaration below, the UK government will increase the value of your contribution to The Balint Society by 25% at no extra cost to you.


By selecting 'Yes' above you are confirming the following:

  1. I am a UK taxpayer.
  2. I would like to Gift Aid all donations I have made to The Balint Society within the last 4 years and all future gifts until further notice.
  3. that I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for the same tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.

About Gift Aid

Gift Aid increases the value of donations to charities by allowing them to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. We would like to reclaim gift aid on your behalf. We can only reclaim Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer. Please confirm that you are a eligible for gift aid above. More about Gift Aid.
