"Everything has been figured out, except how to live." Jean-Paul Sartre
I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and I have been working as such for more than 10 years with all sorts of concerns people bring. It is beneficial for many of us to have space in which we can speak and be heard. Working in therapy will bring clarity in who you are in your work and relationships.
What is psychoanalysis?
There is only one rule and that is to speak whatever crosses one's mind without censorship. It is also the most difficult thing to achieve. It is not only that the freedom of speech is encouraged but it is essential to the work. Sometimes we do not even know what we think before we start speaking; more often we do not know why we do things we do and why we behave in the way we do. The aim is to discover and learn something about ourselves and then we can make a choice.
If you feel unwell and you cannot figure out why, if you find yourself questioning your relationships, if there is a repetition in your work and love life you are not happy with, there is only one remedy for it and that is to speak about yourself in the presence of another person.
Contact me to arrange several exploratory sessions to see if we can work together.
