Are you curious to discover how psychoanalysis can deepen our understanding of ourselves and of the world around us? Please join us for us for one of our events.

Whether you’re interested in learning about psychoanalysis itself from practising psychoanalysts, or in exploring the psychological underpinnings of world events, art or politics, we hope that you will find an event to engage you here.

And if you’re passionate about film, certainly don’t miss our popular Couch and Screen events, where we are joined by a remarkable group of special guests in exploring the connections between psychoanalysis and film.

All the events below are open to anyone, with or without prior knowledge of psychoanalysis.

Also, please sign up to our newsletter so you will hear about up and coming events. You can also choose to be informed about our forthcoming programme of online courses and downloads and about our book club launch which are planned in the next year.

If you are a clinician, health professional or in training, have a look at Events for Clinicians here.
