Alain de Botton

Trainee Psychotherapist

Alain de Botton

Alain is completing his training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at Regent’s University. He has long been interested in how our past shapes our present - and how we might be able, with the help of therapy, to move towards less anxious, more connected, and more creative ways of living.

Alain began his career as a writer of many books on relationships and on philosophical themes. Lately, he founded and has been helping to run The School of Life, an organisation devoted to emotional education.
