About me and my therapy practice
I offer psychoanalytical psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to individuals experiencing difficulties in their lives, which may take the form of depression and anxiety. My focus is on the underlying questions one might want to explore connected to their difficulties and unique experiences. These may have to do with their relationships, family dynamics, loss, bullying, childhood/upbringing, lack of purpose, career/employment difficulties, identity, and emotional difficulties. These may be underlying what we call symptoms and suffering. I provide a safe and containing space to explore these issues, via short/long term and open-ended therapeutic work.
Psychoanalysis differs from other treatments, in that it takes an explorative approach, looking inwards to understand what has happened for the individual and continues to be repeated in their lives. This consists in taking a curious and not-knowing stance, creating a space to think and reflect, whilst examining memories, one's history, and what has led up to them seeking therapy.
Psychoanalysis is a talking cure, which places importance on the therapeutic relationship. It does not provide standardised advice or instructions. Instead, its purpose is to help you think more deeply about the causes of unhappiness, to develop your own authentic ways of responding. It is a unique and flexible approach, without judgement, based on attentive listening to your words.
