Types of therapy I offer
You may have asked yourself:
- What is it that I really want?
- Why do I keep repeating unhealthy behaviours?
- Why do I make unwise life choices?
Psychoanalysis is a form of talking cure invented by Sigmund Freud.
Jacques Lacan, a French psychoanalyst developed the psychoanalytic theory further, incorporating elements from other fields of knowledge, such as linguistics and topology. I offer psychoanalysis in a Lacanian orientation.
Psychoanalysis is not a quick fix. It takes time and commitment to explore one’s suffering. I will ask you about your life, your childhood memories and your dreams. I will listen. Sessions are of variable length.
