Basingstoke Cafe Sci subscribers are invited to the talk hosted by Winchester Skeptics In The Pub. Tonight is the Christmas Special titled “Talking Yourself Better” and is hosted by author Ariane Sherine.

Winchester Skeptics hosts a guest speaker on the last Thursday of every month. They provide an opportunity for people who are interested in science, skepticism, rationalism and critical thinking to socialise and discuss matters of interest.


We’ve all watched films and telly programmes featuring therapists, such as The Sopranos – but what’s the best way to access therapy in real life if you’re not a mafia boss? What’s the difference between therapy and counselling, or CBT and psychoanalysis? And why pay a stranger to listen to you in the first place? Can’t a good friend provide a shoulder to cry on?

In this talk, based on her new book Talk Yourself Better, Atheist Bus Campaign creator Ariane Sherine will answer all these questions and more, demystifying once and for all the secret world of therapy - with plenty of laughs along the way.

Ariane will also be signing copies of Talk Yourself Better after the talk.


Tonight the suggested donation on the door is £3 for entry into a book raffle.

The Licensed front cafe bar at the Winchester Discovery Centre area will be open from 7.00pm. The talks for Winchester Skeptics in the Pub start at 7.30pm in the main theatre.

After the show, there is a group of Skeptics who go to the nearby Gurkha Inn for a late night curry. Everyone is welcome to join in if there is space ... it is first come, first served on spaces.
