The Maison Verte-UK is modelled on the popular and innovative idea pioneered by the famous French psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto in 1979. Like her, we want to offer a welcoming environment to parents and their children, a place halfway between the intimacy of home and the strange newness of society.

The Maison Verte-UK is hosted by three ‘welcomers’. We are all qualified psychoanalysts, educationalists, counsellors, psychologists etc, but the Maison Verte-UK is not a place for individual or group therapy, nor is it a place for re-education or treatment. It is a place for play and for meeting people. Babies, children, and adults may enjoy an experience of conviviality that is respectful of family identity, where children’s play and adults’ words meet, and where a child can gradually be introduced to his or her history, culture, and community.

A project supported through The Tudor Trust and Cripplegate Foundation.
