Sigmund Freud's Collection

"There was always a feeling of sacred peace and quiet here. The rooms themselves must have been a surprise to any patient, for they in no way reminded one of a doctor’s office but rather of an archaeologist’s study… Everything here contributed to one’s feeling of leaving the haste of modern life behind, of being sheltered from one’s daily cares." Sergei Pankejeff, 'The Wolfman', on Freud's study.

Visit the Freud Museum London to experience the feeling of sacred peace and quiet for yourself. https://www.freud.org.uk/visit/

This is just to thank the Freud Museum and Ivan Ward for hosting and talking on the psychology of racism for the event on 10th October. It was a rare privilege to experience a speaker who brings emotional as well as intellectual power to such a painful and challenging subject. Much appreciated. I do hope the talk will be accessible to a broader public in the near future.
