Dr Gabor Maté: Live on Stage in London

Gabor Mate: Live at the Barbican

Drawing on cutting-edge science and real-life stories, renowned physician Dr Gabor will share his compassionate and humane approach to wellbeing. 

A revered expert in the psychology of addiction, a prize-winning author and the pioneer of an innovative understanding of human development that employs the lenses of science and compassion, Dr Gabor Maté is a singular figure in contemporary medicine.

Renowned for his insights into the connections between mind and body, self and society, Dr Maté avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting self-understanding as the foundation of wellbeing and the first key to healing.

Returning to How To Academy to explore the major insights of his life and career, from the role of trauma and emotional loss in the formation of addiction to the myth of ‘normal’ and the connection between personal suffering and the pressures of modern-day living, this live event will change how you see yourself, others and the world.
