Modern life can keep us so busy that we forget (or avoid) the essential need to stop and check in with ourselves in order to take care of our own emotional lives.
At The School of Life, we believe that consulting a psychotherapist should be as accessible and as normal as developing your career, getting help for a physical problem, or going to the gym to get healthy. Just as we take care of our bodies and physical health, a vital element of self-care is devoting focused time and energy to exploring and understanding our thoughts and feelings.
Whatever is going on in your life – whether you are entering a period of transition, want to improve your relationships or are stuck in a rut– we’ll engage you in an enlightening one-to-one conversation marked by curiosity, respect and understanding. You may want help for dealing with a serious problem, or perhaps you want to develop and self-improve.
Psychotherapy can help when life feels unbearably difficult, and it can also make a decent life even better. You will work collaboratively to become more aware of patterns in your life and enact changes to lessen your suffering and increase your enjoyment of life.

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
