Dr Diana Caine
I offer short-term or longer term psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis for individuals experiencing low mood, anxiety, loss or conflict whatever the cause.
In a safe, non-judgemental environment you can talk about what has happened to you, discover the meaning for you of a traumatic or distressing event – whether illness, the end of a relationship, a work conflict – a meaning that is often linked to significant people and events in the past. The work, which takes place usually once or twice a week, aims to enable you to find new ways of thinking about your past experience, and so to contemplate a different future.
If you would like to find out more, please contact me via email or telephone. I will offer a time to meet for an initial consultation. This meeting is an opportunity for us to see if we can work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a chartered psychologist and associate fellow with the BPS, an HCPC registered clinical psychologist and I am on the BPS Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists. In addition to my formal training in clinical psychology, I have trained in psychoanalysis with CFAR and the Guild of Psychotherapists.
Having worked for 25 years in the NHS in Australia and in the UK, I have had extensive experience in clinical practice. In the NHS I lead a programme of psychotherapy for patients with illnesses that challenge their sense of identity, their thoughts about their future life and their relations with others. I have also worked as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice for more than 10 years with people suffering depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and issues related to gender identity and orientation.
I have taught at the Universities of Sydney and Manchester, and on the public seminar programme for CFAR. I have written and published numerous articles, in English and French, on wide range of topics including working with psychosis and, most recently, the book 'Perversion Now!' published by Palgrave Macmillan.
