Group Psychotherapy - Initial Session

A 16-week course of Group Psychotherapy held at The School of Life's Therapy Space in London. 

There can be great advantages to joining a group, where we meet regularly and talk with unusual focus and openness about our emotional lives. Group therapy differs from a mere gathering of friends, because it is led by a therapist trained in how to offer structure and support and guide the conversation in the most useful and interesting way

Why join a group? Perhaps you are interested in self-development and want to improve your communication skills. You might feel socially anxious and struggle to assert yourself in certain situations. Maybe you feel isolated, low in mood, or you feel a bit stuck in your life and you are not sure how to move forward. Perhaps you experience relationship difficulties, or you find it hard to share and feel intimate with others. You might just want an emotional challenge. There are so many reasons to experience group therapy.

Group therapy offers rich insights into how we behave around and respond to other people. Fears, hopes and patterns of behaviour that don’t normally get observed in daily life can be studied and discussed in an atmosphere of deep insight and kindness. The group provides an opportunity to work through a range of issues, helping you experience healthier ways of relating.

The group meets on Tuesday evenings, over sixteen weeks.


“It has been a really affirming and positive experience.”

Useful information:

Our next course of Group Psychotherapy is now open. The course will run for 16 weeks from 1 October 2019 to 28 January 2020 (with no sessions on  24 or 31 December). Sessions will be held from 6.30-8pm on Tuesdays.

Location: The School of Life London Therapy Space, 8 Northington Street, London WC1N 2JQ

Cost: The initial therapy session costs £50 and will last for 50 minutes. This will be an opportunity for the facilitator to get to know you, for you to ask any questions you might have and to help you identify what you want to address in group therapy.

If you decide to undertake the Group Psychotherapy course, the cost for the 16-week course is £900 (this is the equivalent of £56.25 per session). You can either pay in 4 instalments of £225 (paid at the start of each 4 week period), or you can pay the full amount in advance for a 5% discount, paying £855.

Following the initial session, if you and the facilitator decide that Group Psychotherapy is not the best option for you, she will either refer you to one to one therapy at The School of Life or make other suitable recommendations.
