Upper 6th students visit Freud's consulting rooms

On 6 November 2019, 16 Upper 6th students visited Sigmund Freud’s consulting rooms in 20 Maresfield Gardens in London. The students were given a short talk on some of Freud’s famous theories and teachings. They were then allowed to enter into Freud’s famous study which is laid out as if he were still alive today and is filled with genuine antiquities from Egypt, Africa and Iran.

The students were then invited into the rooms of Anna Freud, Signmund’s daughter, who up until her death in 1982 worked alongside her father as a Child Psychoanalyst and founded the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. This centre has been instrumental in transforming children’s mental health, promoting wellbeing and supporting families during difficult times.

Overall the trip was very much enjoyed by all those who attended and it is hoped that we can make it an annual trip. For more details please see Mrs Hipple.
