Dr Egle Vera Reeves
UKCP & BPS Registered Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist
Clinical Psychologist - Psychoanalysis (Argentina)
I have been working with adults since 2004, whilst re-training as a doctor in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy in the UK, at The Burma Road Practice N16 and from Walthamstow, E17.
I originally trained in Clinical Psychology and Psychoanalysis in Argentina, including Psychoanalytic Parent-Infant Mental Health and Psychoanalysis with children and adolescents. I was part of a multidisciplinary team working with vulnerable children for a decade, gaining full accreditation in my late twenties. I also worked in governmental preventative programmes in marginalised communities and had a small private practice before leaving Argentina.
My psychoanalytic and integrative practice is influenced and enriched mainly but not exclusively by the teachings of Freud, Lacan, Winnicott, Guattari, by child development research and attachment theory, and by many Argentinean critical clinicians like R. Rodulfo. I work with people of different ages, backgrounds and presenting issues in an exploratory, non-stigmatizing and collaborative way. I do not follow predetermined ‘ways’ in response to specific ‘symptoms’ and each process, as each individual, is unique.
I work with people who may be experiencing
psychological pain or unease,
that may be experiencing new or recurrent relationship difficulties,
mayor life changes,
a life crisis.
Some people may want to make sense of their life better or come to terms with long standing issues like trauma or abuse.
For years I researched the impact suffered by adults that had been abducted as babies during Argentina’s last dictatorship and lied for decades about their origins, and learnt more about the transdisciplinary work developed by human rights organisations to support the difficult transitions generated by this. I am also passionate about early years and universal community work. Whilst re-training in London, I worked in multidisciplinary teams supporting asylum seeking and homeless families, families from all backgrounds with young children, within the voluntary and local authority sectors, offering emotional and practical support for families and running a weekly group for new parents and their babies for many years.
