I practice Lacanian Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a talking work, or therapy, which aims to make an absolute difference to suffering. Lacan's psychoanalysis is based in the idea that the unconscious is structured like language. What you say reveals the unconscious processes that underlie any issues that are problematic for you, or recur. Psychoanalysis is the safe space where you can come to talk freely, without censorship and your analyst listens. There is no "correct" way to speak; the work of psychoanalysis is to find your own unique voice, especially of your unconscious.
I believe that psychoanalysis offers a way of working through issues that is radically different to many modern modalities. I have 15 years of clinical experience and I also offer psychoanalytic supervision. My clinic is the safe space where, without judgement, we work together to resolve whatever is unique for you in your life.
I like to work with anyone who is willing to talk; we work together with free-association to "hear" what is going on in the unconscious. There is no right or wrong way to speak, just the safe space to speak entirely of and for yourself. If you feel that this is what you would like to explore, I am here.

The issues that psychoanalysis can help you with are numerous. I work with anxiety, depression, addictions, with teenagers and adults. Psychoanalysis is a long term therapy and best worked twice a week. The benefits can be immediate, just by speaking freely. However, longer term work yields deeper differences.

I am a psychoanalyst. My belief is that the unconscious part of us can be explored and known to help us recognise what makes us suffer, and to work to make an absolute difference to this suffering. To speak freely helps us to get to know ourselves on a very different level, and to find and follow what we really desire that is unique to each one of us.
