My Approach

You are facing life difficulties, unhappiness, anxieties, depressive feelings, relationship issues, sexual or existential struggles. You feel stuck or not fulfilled. You are facing a life situation requiring professional help.
Psychoanalysis or Psychoanalytic Therapy could help you better understand yourself and others as well as your psychological, emotional and somatic reactions. It could also help you unearth some of the root causes of these life issues and free yourself from the inner blockers preventing you from living a much more full and conscious life as well as developing a stronger sense of reality and self-esteem.
The length of the therapeutic process can vary from a few weeks to a few years.
After you initiate a first contact either through telephone or email, we will arrange a few initial sessions to identify your needs and qualify the potential objectives of a therapeutic process between you and I. These initial sessions will also help me understand whether I am the right therapist for you.
Should we decide to work together, I will suggest a structure for our mutual engagement.
My role will be to support you through your therapeutic journey by listening and also by offering other views on your current and past life events.
We will both be working together but your engagement and commitment will remain at the centre of your therapeutic journey.
I always keep the interactions with my clients fully confidential.
