Group Psychotherapy

A 16-week course of Group Psychotherapy held at The School of Life's therapy space in London, beginning on 9th October 2018.

Group Psychotherapy provides a safe place to explore your difficulties and share your experiences while learning from others. The group provides opportunities to explore interpersonal issues in an experiential way, in the “here and now” of the group environment. Group therapy can help you communicate more openly in your relationships and get a better sense of yourself by being with others. It can also help you understand your difficulties, learn to be more assertive and build your confidence in social situations.

Please note there are only ten spaces available per course. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please email

Booking information

Session Times: Tuesdays from 18.30-20:00

Dates: 9 October 2018 to 5 February 2019 (with a 2 week break over the festive period, there will be no sessions on 25 December or 1 January)

Cost: £800. You can either pay in two instalments of £400, one at the start of the group and one before the 8th group session. Or, you can pay the full amount with a 10% discount at the start of the group, for £720.

If you are interested, please proceed by booking the initial introductory session and the group facilitator will contact you to arrange an appointment. The individual session will last for 50 minutes and the fee is £100. This will be an opportunity for you to have an in-depth conversation with a highly qualified professional, to ask any questions you might have, to know what to expect from the group for the facilitator to get to know you and understand your difficulties. The initial introductory session will also help you to identify what you want to work on in group therapy.

If, following this initial session, you and the facilitator do not think group psychotherapy is the best option for you, she will share her understanding with you in an honest and clear way and can either refer you to one of the other therapy offerings at The School of Life, or she can recommend other options for how best to move forward and address your concerns.
