I am a Lacanian psychoanalyst. Lacan's psychoanalysis is based in the idea that the unconscious is structured like language. What you say reveals the unconscious processes that underlie any issues that are problematic for you, or recur. Recurring problems especially, are well resolved when you work within the realms of psychoanalysis. I believe that psychoanalysis offers a way of working through issues that is radically different to many modern modalities.
I offer Lacanian psychoanalysis, which is a form of talking therapy that aims to explore the unconscious. This is a means of long-term work that aims towards an absolute difference. The work we do is for the subject, and is specific to each one who enters the work.
I have 10 years of clinical practice that includes ongoing peer supervision. I regularly present at clinical seminars and conferences both in Australia and internationally.

My interest in and practice of psychoanalysis stems from my deep inquiry into humans--our selves--as unique subjects within the framework of the social world that we are born into. Rather than applying ourselves to categories, or diagnoses, psychoanalysis aims to find where we are in position to the demands that the world at large imposes onto us. The human unconscious is radically unique to each of us. The psychoanalytic space is the place to explore you as the very kernel of you....
