Too often, psychotherapy is thought of as an extreme measure or a bizarre indulgence. At The School of Life, we believe it would benefit many of us to talk in confidence to an exceptionally responsive person about our private concerns. Our 'MOT' service is intended as a one-off or longer term session to service your mind.
Rather than approaching therapy from a purely clinical perspective, we engage you in an enlightening conversation marked by curiosity, respect and kindness. Whatever your interest or concern, our aim is to take you on a fascinating and valuable tour of your own psyche.
It is widely held that it is the quality of your relationship with the therapist, rather than the type of therapy, that is most critical to a successful outcome. However, it can be difficult to find a therapist who is a good match as psychotherapy is a notoriously complex field where you’re liable to stumble on a disturbing number of gurus and shamans.
We offer a referral service to connect individuals to therapists we know and recommend, but we do not endorse any particular form of therapy.
The School of Life’s MOTs are unique one-off consultations. Follow-up sessions can be booked directly with the therapist, and will be charged as per their usual fee structure.
