The Importance of Therapy
At The School of Life, we believe that consulting a psychotherapist should be as accessible and as normal as getting a haircut or going to the dentist. Therapy isn’t for the select or distressed few; we believe that therapy is for everybody.
To help dispel the slight taboo which sometimes surrounds it, we have created a welcoming home for psychotherapy for when you feel stuck in a rut, anxious about your relationships or simply unsure about what’s going on in your life. Our therapists are based in the heart of Central London in both our dedicated therapy space in Northington Street and at our Marchmont Street HQ, but we also offer online sessions via video conference for those unable to come to London.
Our psychotherapists and psychologists are all fully accredited practitioners, registered with tightly governed professional bodies. They are expert listeners with a great wealth of experience in all the quirks and unusual facets of the human mind. A one to one session allows an objective, non-judgmental space in which you can talk freely and openly about the things which worry you; guided, all the while, with valuable insight from a trained professional.
'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 recognise 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.'
