About us

At A Space, we believe in the value of making ideas from psychotherapy relevant to everyday life. We do this via our work as therapists, our books published by Routledge, and our emotional learning resources co-produced with the Institute of International Visual Arts (iniva) which combine compelling contemporary art with psychologically informed commentary and questions.
