Psychoanalytical psychotherapy is a mixture of two processes. Psychoanalysis focuses on listening and questioning; it is a thoughtful way to explore what it is that you desire. It can open up a space for change. Psychotherapy is care: the therapeutic aspects of the work. Each psychoanalytical psychotherapy is different, a mixture of analytic and therapeutic processes. It can open up possibilities; it can help you find stability and a way of living with whatever challenges life poses.
Psychotherapy is talk-therapy. A psychotherapist listens with her heart. As we work together, something unpredictable and unknowable happens. justEmail Contact Form for a free phone or video chat or to discuss psychotherapy or psychoanalysis or to make an appointment for online video or phone therapy from my consulting room in East London, between Leyton, Walthamstow, and Hackney.justEmail Contact Form
It's rare to be truly listened to, and that's what a psychoanalyst or psychotherapist offers: listening. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are an opportunity to be heard, a chance to explore questions that mean a lot to you. What is important to you? What do you think and feel? What do your ideas and feelings mean to you?
I offer free 15 minute phone or video calls if you want to talk about what's troubling you or if you are considering psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. If you'd like to talk to a psychotherapist for 15 minutes, please email me on [email protected] or phone 07947 330 631 to book a free 15 minute phone or video appointment. JustEmail Contact Form
Every analysand is unique and the questions are wide-ranging and unexpected.
Are you worried about coronavirus?
Do you sometimes wonder what effect the past has had on you? Do you want to find ways to think differently about the past?
Do you have questions about relationships and sexuality?
What brought you to London or to wherever you now make your home? What effect has migration had on your life? Are you worried about Brexit?
Do you want to talk about issues or questions to do with work?
I also offer psychoanalytical reflective supervision to trainees or practitioners. I am particularly interested in work with psychiatric social workers, art therapists, clinical psychologists, and others wishing to reflect on the psychotherapeutic and psychoanalytical aspects of their work with clients.
