Relationship Support & Advice | The School of Life

Relationships

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.

Tools for Relationships

From how best to approach a first date, to ways of sustaining intimacy over a lifetime, we offer a range of tools that can teach you how to love, communicate and flourish in relationships.
