About me and my therapy practice

Psychoanalysis in the Lacanian orientation works on what is heard in what is said.

My job is to create and hold a space in which you can hear yourself think. Together we will analyse what is going wrong in your life, and find new ways to bear the contradictions of contemporary life. The process can itself reduce your suffering (therapeutic effects), it can help you make decisions (effects of counselling) but the kernel of the work will give you priceless knowledge about how to become better able to respond to what makes you suffer.

No one seeks a psychoanalyst without being pushed by a moment of crisis. This is a valuable and instructive moment. By listening to what you say, I will be able to help you to find your bearings and begin a quest to discover what goes wrong. This is the crucial step to creating a new way for your life.

Psychoanalysis works not by the quantity of words spoken, but by grasping something from the logic of speech and language that structures your life. 

You will not be asked to speak for a fixed period of time. We don't know in advance how long each session will last – it will be my job, with your agreement, to find the end of each session.

If you feel you would like a chance to experience this for yourself, then come for an exploratory chat and find out how Lacanian psychoanalysis can operate for you.

Practice description

Lacanian psychoanalysis is a quite distinct way of working in the field of psychoanalysis. Contemporary Lacanian practice is constantly being renewed by the clinical experience of thousands of psychoanalysts across the world. We follow the teaching of Jacques Lacan by working together in small groups across the seven Schools of the World Association of Psychoanalysis. 

We refine and test the logics of the speech and language that we hear in our consulting rooms. The human being is an animal that speaks! Speech and language come to each one of us via the love relations we are born into, and we suffer from this. This is why psychoanalysis is a practice of speaking – you speak, the analyst listens.  

By coming to talk to an analyst you will be able to find new ways to understand your particular suffering. Psychoanalysis makes us more able to respond to the real of the world we inhabit. Finding the truth of your suffering will open up a new way to respond to it.   

My first session

Come and meet me and find out if you think we can work together. You can tell me what has prompted you to reach out and how you chose to make an appointment. It will also be a good moment to think about how to organise the work (how often to come, how much it will cost). It is impossible to predict how this meeting will unfold or how long it will last. You may want to come a few more times before you decide how you want to proceed. 

I receive anyone who wants to know what is going wrong in their life and can promise that your words will be respected. Psychoanalysis works because you choose it and cannot work if you don't. It cannot be forced on you. But there is only one way to find out if it will work for you, and that is to come and to speak.

About me and my therapy practice

I welcome anyone who wants to know what is going wrong in their life. Whether it is anxiety, jealousy, depression, panic, anger, fear,, problems with sleep, difficulties with sex, troubles with love and work. Any of these things can leave you overwhelmed, and seem impossible to overcome on your own.

By talking things through with someone who listens carefully, it can be possible to shift the burden so that you can get on again with your life.

It takes courage to make the first step to talk to an analyst – but it is the first step to regaining a sense of control over your life, your love, and your work.

Come for an exploratory chat; find out how I work. You can talk about what has led you to this point, and what you hope to get out of your sessions. Then you can decide whether you think we can work together.
