Bibliotherapy Voucher

Life's too short for bad books - but with a new book published every 30 seconds, it can be hard to know where to start.

That’s why The School of Life set up a bibliotherapy service: to guide you to those amazing but often elusive works of literature, both past and present, that have the power to enchant, enrich and inspire.

In a consultation with one of our bibliotherapists, you'll explore your relationship with books so far and be asked to explore new literary directions. Perhaps you're looking for an author whose style you love so much you will want to devour every word they've ever written. Perhaps you’re about to trek across China and need to find ideal travel companions to download onto your kindle. Maybe you’re feeling disconnected from the world and want to listen to the classics of your childhood during your daily commute. Or you’re seeking a change in your life and want to hold the hand of people who've been there and done that already.

Whatever your concerns, dreams or challenges, we'll devote ourselves to creating an inspirational reading prescription that's tailor-made for you. 

ABOUT BIBLIOTHERAPY

Our bibliotherapists specialise in works of fiction but also prescribe select works of philosophy, poetry and other creative non-fiction. They give one to one sessions, and run group sessions.

Sessions can take place in-person or remotely via phone or skype. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire in advance of the session. You'll be given an instant prescription to take-away. Your full prescription will follow within a couple of days.
