How to Worry Less about Money

How to Worry Less about Money

Financial psychologists maintain that many of us are prone to money disorders.  So, with a good dash of humour, this class invites us to diagnose our particular financial pathology and develop a healthier relationship with money.

We’ll consider our conflicting feelings about consumer objects we desire and our envy for those possessing them.  We’ll ask how we can get so worked up about tax avoiders when we continue to exploit loopholes for our own gain.  And we’ll probe our financial habits within the wider perspective of our hidden wealth – those deeper values that can often be explored at precious little cost.

This class is not a lesson in bulking up your bank balance but an adventurous investigation into one of your most cherished and intimate relationships.  Come prepared to laugh at your financial neuroses, bust the conversation taboo of cash, and develop some finer money wisdom for life.


Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.

These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity.  Optional homework is provided for those interested in further study.


This class is part of our EQ Certificate Programme. For more information about how to enrol at The School of Life please click here

The establishment of choice for students seeking a sense of what matters. The school aims to provide a jolt of inspiration or the opportunity to reflect on a neglected area of life, rather than intensive study. The combination of unusually stylish premises and a curriculum relevant to the challenges of contemporary life has proved highly successful since the school opened in September 2008.
