About me: I am a fully trained and registered with the UKCP. My training is in psychoanalysis and my work is primarily informed by the theories and practices of Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan. I am a psychoanalyst of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR).Before working in private practice I worked as a Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist in the NHS. Prior to training in Psychoanlaysis my career was in Primary School Teaching for many years.
About my work: My work in based on listening - listening carefully to what you say. Being listened to can help to open up new ways of looking at and reflecting upon what it is that is troubling you. This can be the first step in allowing more satisfactory responses to be found.
Change can be difficult and bearing with this is part of the process. Every therapy or analysis is a unique.The length of time that it is pursued is also very individual and hugely variable.
My work can be effective in addressing many difficulties including:
- repeating unsatisfactory patterns in work and/or relationships
- feeling trapped, stuck or inhibited
- difficulties associated with teaching and working in a school
- feeling lost or directionless
- depression and post-natal depression
- experiencing loss or bereavement
- wanting to make changes and adapting to changes
- being a mother
- feeling disatisfied
- difficulties associated with becoming a parent
- family difficulties
