Freud, Jung, Klein & Winnicott; A masterclass in the psychology of the unconscious.

Why do you do what you do?

Are you really in control of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour?

Or are there elements beneath the surface that are really running the show?

The depth psychologists; Freud, Jung, Winnicott and Klein, helped us understand that much of what we do is shaped by the unconscious, and that our conscious mind (the ego) is just the tip of the iceberg.

Crucially, they also developed methods for working with the unconscious and making its contents conscious, to improve our self awareness and give us greater freedom in our lives.

In this one day workshop, we’ll explore the key ideas of Freud, Jung, Winnicott and Klein, and examine how they can be applied to create lasting changes both in ourselves, and in others.


  • Carl Jung and The Interpretation of Dreams
  • Melanie Klein and Our Inner World
  • Sigmund Freud and the Psychosexual Stages of Development
  • Donald Winnicott and the True and False Self

The course will contribute six hours of Continuing Professional Development.

What TWU attendees are saying:

I just wanted to say what a fabulous day it was on Sunday. The presenters were all highly engaging and the material fascinating. I am ever so grateful to have been able to attend and look forward to any future similar events with ‘zest’!

Caroline Glasner

I found the 3 speakers to be extremely well prepared, professional, charismatic, authentic in their delivery of there content. They all had something to share. They were very clear on the “takeaways” which I found in important for such a long day. They all 3 were also very generous in spending time after their talk, to answer more 1-2-1 questions on the side of the room. Very generous. I look forward to future weekend university days.

Anthony Lee

What an intense and heartening day, Jan 28th at Birkbeck U venue. Despite being crowded (testiment to the desire for these events and the caliber) we were comfortable enough to be riveted by the material for hours. I appreciated the free coffee, because the day was long for those like me who come from outside the city. I look forward to the slides being sent to fill out my notes. Fellow audients were warm and attending for a variety of reasons, and are the second fab reason to be there for the day.
