Psychoanalytic psychotherapy adheres to a case-by-case perspective. Namely, to the assumption that every individual is unique and requires a different course of treatment. The basic working hypothesis is that every analysis is different in its content, in its trajectory, in its frequency and duration. Through the act of free association one speaks freely about anything that comes to mind and engages the issues brought up in depth. The trajectory of treatment is directed by the speech of free association, along with the analyst's interpretations, toward the singular truth of one's symptoms and their subsequent alleviation.

I am Ru, and I am ACA registered psychotherapist working in Fitzroy North, Melbourne. Psychotherapy moves to deepen our connection with self and with those around us. As a psychotherapist, I hold the relationship as the main space of change, as it is the relationship in which present and past issues emerge. I work with various frameworks to facilitate change and create a greater sense of ease and self-understanding.

I am passionate about supporting and helping individuals, families who feel trapped in their trauma symptoms. There is a common belief that the trauma is the result of individual's thinking pattern, which is misleading. Any traumatic experiences registered somatically, therefore the trauma work will be somatically oriented, which aims to clear the symptoms from the whole system.

I offer a space for individuals to enhance their understanding of how they relate to the world, themselves, and others. I assist individuals in exploring current, and enduring difficulties they may have that are impacting their ability to live life in a way that they consider to be meaningful. I often meet with individuals who are interested in exploring facets of their lives untouched by previous therapeutic endeavors. I am engaged with existential literature and eastern thought and religion, specifically that of Zen Buddhist practice, in particular their application to therapy.

People come to see me for a lot of different reasons. For instance, you might be experiencing depression or anxiety, having relationship difficulties (whether you're single or partnered), going through a major life transition or loss, or wondering about the overall direction of your life. You may have a sense that there's something more to life -- that you could be living a richer life, and thriving more than you are right now. I'm here to support you and examine what's working and not, whether you're seeking a major transformation, or simply a deeper understanding of your life patterns.

Currently open for new referrals. I work from an understanding that many of life's concerns stem from our past experiences in relationships and the structural difficulties that are present in our society. This organizes the way I understand peoples experience and distress and how I seek to understand how we are in relationship, and what fixed patterns get in the way of living a more meaningful and enriching life. I work with warmth and curiosity to help develop a deeper understanding of your area of concern and better make sense of why particular patterns might be causing distress.

I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Private Practice since 2011. My aim is to create spaces of trust for clients to explore the intricacy of their own lives, to identify the fullness and complexity of their experience, to come to terms with themselves, and to release behaviour which no longer serves them. My work is Humanistic, Person Centred and Emotion Focused, and I use the integrative approaches of my training as entry points for us to language, feel, and honour, all that we carry deeply within us.

From this place we move forward together to process "stuck" memories and explore the development of new ways of being in the world.

Sorry I am not currently accepting new clients. I am a clinical psychologist typically working with clients with chronic mental illness or long term difficulties that appear to form a life pattern (e.g., persistent difficulty with maintaining employment/relationships, long standing low self esteem). I have had varied experience with different client groups, working within public mental health, assessment clinics, student support and private practice. In each of these settings my aim has been for my clients to feel heard, increase their self-understanding, and gain hope toward their improvement.

I have a wide range of experience working as a therapist with adults and young people in public and private health. I started my journey in psychology about ten years ago, after spending two decades in the finance and education sectors. I am very grateful for the rich life experience I could bring into the therapy room and the opportunities to walk with clients as they manage overwhelming challenges. I have developed a passion in helping people make personal recovery from life-changing illnesses or circumstances, in rebuilding hope, redefining self-identity, assuming / re-assuming responsibilities, and leading a meaningful life.
