Our Year 12 Psychology students recently visited The Freud Museum to further explore the depths of the mind 🧐🧠

The Freud Museum was once the home of Sigmund Freud, after his escape from Nazi-occupied Vienna and is a testament to his pioneering work in psychoanalysis. From the moment we set foot inside, we were enveloped in an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity and contemplation. One highlight was Freud's famous study, preserved exactly as it was during his lifetime. The room is a veritable time capsule, filled with artifacts that offer a glimpse into Freud's inner world, including his iconic psychoanalytic couch where patients would recline as they explored the depths of their subconscious.

Set within our theatre, the exhibition offered a retrospective glimpse into their journey of exploration and artistic freedom, leaving a lasting impression on all who attended. The students really benefited from viewing their work in such a professionally curated environment.
