Formally I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, working both in private practice and the public mental health and addiction sectors.
My approach to treatment takes its direction from experience, both in the lived sense and specifically in terms of psychoanalysis (having undergone an analysis and formation as an analyst). My practice pays particularly close attention to the person him or herself, the dynamic cultivated in the session, and am far less interested in peripheral issues such as diagnosis.
