Welcome to the Lab, by Stillpoint Spaces London.

Come explore psychology, in depth, outside the consulting room through our brand new open source psychology co-working hub, our events, and our growing community.

At the Stillpoint Spaces Lab we are creating the conditions for work and cultural engagement that goes beyond productivity.

We do this through:

  • Providing a bright and welcoming working environment for our members.
  • The provision of lectures, seminars, and workshops on contemporary subjects that matter to you.
  • Creating a community of those seeking to understand more about our world and about ourselves through psychology and psychotherapeutic approaches.
  • Enabling people to deepen their work, whatever that work may be, by engaging the whole person.
  • Reaching out to and engaging with other communities and organisations that share our vision.
  • Developing our international community of members and spaces.

Our 'Lab' is an ongoing experiment where we endeavour to take the insights from psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and psychology, out of the consulting room and apply them to everyday life. Through our physical spaces in London, Berlin, Zurich, and online we hope to expand the scope of psychology to all aspects of life by stimulating in-depth thoughtful work, introspection, and reflection.

Stillpoint Spaces is an international organisation founded by counsellors and psychotherapists who, in addition to providing high quality individual work, also want to create a more public space for engaging with contemporary issues through a psychological lens.

Who can become a member?

Anyone with a deep interest in psychology and its applications to individuals, groups, and society are all welcome to apply for membership. While many of us will come from the "talking therapies" we hope to attract people from a variety of disciplines who share our vision and hope to apply ideas from insight oriented-psychologies to their work, whatever that might be.

We are open to:

  • Counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and analysts who are looking to broaden their work outside their consultation rooms.
  • Individuals from other disciplines who may wish to share their skills, offer workshops, lectures, seminars, or trainings to our members.
  • People who want to work in a psychologically intentional environment that incorporates elements of mindfulness, deep work, and personal individuation into the space.
  • Academics and students with an interest in applying depth psychology to their work – all disciplines welcome (sociology, cultural studies, film studies, etc.).
  • Trainees in psychology, psychotherapy, counselling, or psychoanalytic candidates.

If you think you’d be interested in membership, we’d very much like to meet you to discuss it. Please use the form below.
