Do you need bibliotherapy?

At first I thought this was tongue-in-cheek, but I think it might be real. A place called School for Life in London is offering “bibliotherapy.”

“A session begins with an unusually in-depth conversation about your attitude and experiences of books (you might read one a day or not have picked one up since school), during which you are invited to share your particular area of concern or curiosity (anything from Japanese archery to how to rediscover your creativity). Following the discussion, a considered and beautifully presented reading programme or book prescription will be sent to you in the post within a week at most”

They also offer long-term bibliotherapy, help in building a library, and bibliotherapy for kids. Although I’m not sure I can forgive them for the way they use “source” in this sentence. “We’ll source the perfect title for a five year old with an interest in skyscrapers or some stories guaranteed to interest a nine year old who thinks only of computer games and declares an all-encompassing hatred for books.”

See for yourself here.
