The School of Life At Work

We’ll work with you to equip your employees with the emotional skills they need to thrive at work – and grow as people.


We apply therapeutic ideas to the world of work, helping individuals and teams overcome the challenges they face, achieve their professional goals and solve the dilemmas of being human. 


With an approach rooted in psychotherapy, and drawing wisdom from the worlds of philosophy, art and culture, our interventions speak directly to the needs of each individual – while driving marked and measurable change for the organisation as a whole.
