About me and my therapy practice
I am a psychoanalytic therapist, which means using language to understand your beliefs about yourself and your place in the world. But where the classic notion of the analyst is one who is mostly silent - an experience I myself have found to be rather isolating - I prefer something more like a conversation. I tend toward being direct and saying what I think is happening rather than maintaining a mysterious silence.
I have seen many presentations over the five years I have spent in private practice. I feel I can work with anyone. In my view, the key requirement for someone seeking therapy is curiosity about the self. Yet, if I had to choose a speciality it would be helping patients with the following presentations:
* Lacking a sense of direction
* Some personal relations leave a bitter taste in the mouth
* Struggle to identify what will make you happy
Contact me today for a consultation. The consultation will give you an opportunity to see if you feel you can use the help I am offering. At the end of the consultation we will discuss the best course of action and agree a therapy plan.
