The Sutherland TrustPresented by: Susie Orbach 

What does Therapy have to say about personal and political life and how do we do it?

Monday 30th October 5.00pm for lecture at 5.30pm

Central Hall, 2 West Tollcross, Edinburgh, EH3 9BP

Refreshments, included in the ticket price, will be available from 5.00pm

Dr. Susie Orbach is a psychotherapist, psychoanalyst, writer and social critic and co-founder of The Women’s Therapy Centre. Susie is the author of several books including Fat is a Feminist Issue and Bodies.  In her most recent book, In Therapy, she explores what goes on in the process of therapy – what she thinks, feels and believes about the people who seek her help – through five dramatised case studies which were originally broadcast as a Radio 4 series.

In this lecture, Susie will play an untransmitted episode and talk about the issues that come up. She will use the session to make links to and reflect on the pressing political issues of our times.

Tickets: £15 (£7.50, student and unwaged) available at Queen’s Hall Box Office

Box Office hotline: 0131 668 2019, 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday

Now Offered in Edinburgh!
The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) has approved 69 hours of continuing professional development for the Marylebone Centre’s (Level 6) Diploma in Sex Addiction/Compulsivity.  This adds to the Diploma’s accreditation by Middlesex University.  The Diploma is also one of the few approved by the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC).

Creating opportunity for clients seeking support

We often hear from clients and therapists the long waiting lists and lack of support in many parts of the UK for clients and their partners seeking help with sexually compulsive behaviours.  Referred again and again until finding a suitable therapist, some clients travel great distances to see a qualified practitioner.

Building a collaborative network of specialised therapists

Our training programme aims to provide the theoretical knowledge, ethical competence, and practical confidence to work with out of control sexual behaviours.  More information and a downloadable brochure about our Diploma programme in sex addiction therapy can be found on our ‘Training’ page, or by contacting Cecily Criminale, Director of Education (
