Esther Perel

Relationship Therapist and New York Times Best-Selling Author

The economic crises, the wars raging around us, the climate disasters forcing us to confront harsh truths, and the incredibly rapid technological changes are all taking a toll on our mental well-being. Today, we need strong relationships and intimacy more than ever – and yet, we appear to be lonelier than ever before.

Enter psychotherapist Esther Perel, one of the globe’s wisest yet wittiest authorities on modern relationships – and modern loneliness. With an almost four-decade tenure in her New York City therapy practice, her bestselling books have been translated into over 30 languages. She also serves as an executive producer and host of the award-winning podcast "Where Should We Begin?"

On September 22, for the first time ever, she is speaking in Budapest. At Brain Bar, she invites Hungary’s audience to a conversation on how we might find safety and stability in our relationships in 2023, and whether the loneliness epidemic can be stopped.


Esther Perel's talk is free of charge and open for anyone to attend. However, if you’d like to take part in all the sessions of the festival, we recommend you purchase a ticket or if you’re a student or a teacher, sign up for a free pass.
