Premarital Psychotherapy

We know that getting married needs a huge amount of preparation, but we overwhelmingly interpret the task in practical terms. We worry a lot about the flowers and devote extraordinary attention to the seating plan. And yet when people look back on a failed union and wonder where the mistakes might have arisen, they rarely come to the conclusion that the fault really lay in an ill-judged floral display or an unsuccessful after-party.

The main preparation we need ahead of marriage is not practical, but psychological. We need to understand ourselves, our partners, where difficulties may arise and how love might work. We need properly to fathom what we are headed into and what the correct mindset for the journey might be.

Premarital Therapy gifts a couple with the opportunity to see what issues they might face in the company of a hugely mature, kind and helpful psychotherapist (who never takes sides). The session enables both parties to look into their pasts, consider what dynamics they may be bringing into the relationship and how best to deal with the other’s psyche as they embark on a new phase of life. More sessions may be arranged and this session provides a helpful and solid start - and, not least, makes for a perfect wedding gift for a couple one loves.

Booking Information - In-person & Online Psychotherapy

The first step to engage in therapy is to attend an initial session. Please purchase one initial session at your earliest convenience.

The session can be attended either in-person or online. In-person sessions take place in our therapy space in London at 8 Northington Street, WC1N 2JQ.

The initial session will last 50 minutes, and the fee is £100 (or EUR/USD equivalent). This will be an opportunity for you to have an in-depth conversation with a highly qualified psychotherapist. You may then choose to have weekly follow-on sessions. As soon as we receive booking confirmation, a therapist will get in touch to arrange a time to meet. All sessions are held in English.

 

In rare occasions it may take 2 to 3 weeks for a client to attend an appointment for an initial session. Please note, due to the popularity of this service, there may be longer waiting times for ongoing therapy especially if you have limited availability or are looking for evening sessions.

Our Psychotherapists

All The School of Life Psychotherapists are listed here (within our Faculty members) and are either registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the British Psychoanalytic Council or the British Psychological Society (BPS).

“Our psychotherapists are fully trained and experienced professionals, but we are more than that – we are open-minded, dedicated, and curious. We aren’t dogmatic and although we care deeply about psychology and psychotherapy, we also recognize the immense contributions philosophy, culture, art, music, and literature have made to our understanding of the human condition. We appreciate the pain and joy of being alive, and we provide a safe, private space for exploring and making sense of some of the darkness. Psychotherapy can help you manage the complexities of simply being human.” Charlotte Fox Weber, Head of Psychotherapy.
