When it comes to relationships, many of us feel ‘stuck’: unable to find the sort of love we need, or to make our needs understood by our partners. In large part, our troubles stem from a myth that loving another human should be something we all naturally know how to do. Far from it; at The School of Life, we believe that love is a skill, not just an emotion – and one we all have to diligently study and regularly rehearse.

Our couples and other relationships therapy provides a space for two or more people to discuss their issues with an experienced, even-handed therapist, ensuring both can feel heard and foster greater intimacy and understanding.Book now

As such, The School of Life offers specialised consultations for couples preparing to marry, helping them understand the challenges they face and give themselves the best possible chance of lifelong happiness.Book now
