I just finished reading this article
How to Find the Best Therapist for You | Psychology Today

The writer says she likd to get her referrals by calling institutes who will refer her to therapists in her area. My question is: what kind of institutes is she talking about specifically? School institutes or therapy offices?

Here's the paragraph, "I have gotten my most of my referrals by calling institutes (Jungian, Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic) for therapists in my area...Many institutes have a service in which a clinic director will do an intake and determine what therapist in the community might be a good fit for you."

That would be places like this:

C. G. Jung Institute Zurich, Kusnacht - C. G. Jung Institute Zurich, Kusnacht

You find them all over the place - national institutes, institutes based around a particular city, and so on. They are often places where therapists do their training and refresher courses, so learning institutions not much different from a college, except that they are aimed at slightly older students.

The author of the article is also in the USA, and the whole thing works a bit differently over here (UK). Am assuming you're in the UK?
There's either the NHS if you're lucky enough to get referred (though your local mental health trust website may have details of a self referral service you can access withou going via a GP). Or, if you want to find a therapist privately, mot people go through the BACP website or the UKCP website, as these are umbrella bodies for therapists in the UK which have ethical codes etc that therapists have to apply to.
I don't think we have quite as many psychological institutes over her as other places do, but it's worth a Google search and find out.

I mostly stay in Los Angeles. I'm looking for an anger management therapist (not because of a court-order but more because my anger problem is causing me mental sabotage).

I googled "anger therapy institute" for my area (LA) but I only found therapy services. If I call them I don't think they would feel obligated to give me referrals as I'm not a patient with them. What do you think? I will still try though regardless.

This is the only institute i could find however i'm not sure if this sites falls under the type of institutes the author was mentioning: Century Anger Management
