The Indian Psychoanalytical Society was founded in Calcutta in 1922 just 3 years after the British Psychoanalytical Society was formed. It was Girindrasekhar Bose who formed the Indian Psychoanalytical Society in his home. The Indian Psychoanalytical Society is affiliated to the International Psychoanalytical Association. Mr. Bhupendra Desai (who studied with Bose) and Mr. Amrith contributed largely to the development of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytical training in Bombay.

Another Pioneer in this field in Mumbai was Mrs. Freny Mehta who was the Head of the Indian Council of Mental Hygiene, an organisation which employed Psychiatric Social Workers to lecture and counsel in numerous schools and colleges in Mumbai. In 1974 a group of psychoanalysts founded a public charity trust called the Psychoanalytic Therapy and Research Centre in Bombay.

The aim of the Centre is to promote the growth and development of psychoanalytical work with children and adults. The Centre was originally based in Taredeo but in 1977 it moved to its present site in the Fort area.

In 1999 the Centre began the first Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Training in India.
