9 Avenue Road
Psychosis Therapy Project
The Mind Hub
48 Despard Road
I offer ongoing psychoanalytic therapy in either English or French and welcome individuals and couples. In my practice, I rely on a very dialogic approach which seeks to suit and appreciate each individual in his or her specificity and uniqueness. Because of my own bilingual and multicultural background, I am especially interested in cultural diversity and have extensive experience working with clients from more marginalised backgrounds (whether in terms of nationality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, or socio-economic status).
Training, qualifications & experience
I am originally from Paris, France, where I began my training as a psychoanalyst and was actively involved in psychoanalytic circles (Espace Analytique, Association Psychanalytique de France). After moving to the UK a few years ago, I joined the Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis where I completed my psychoanalytic training. I am now a Council member of the Site.
I have worked in a variety of institutional settings including the NHS and Islington MIND. I am the founder and clinical lead of the Psychosis Therapy Project at the Mind Hub (N19), a specialist therapy service for people experiencing psychosis.
I am a member of the UKCP, of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College (CPJA) and of the College of Psychoanalysts UK (CP-UK). I am one of the editors of the journal Sitegeist, a journal of psychoanalysis and philosophy, as well as a leading translator in the field of psychoanalysis.
