My approach to help people change is psychodynamic, which is inspired by psychoanalytic thinking. It involves the examination of unconscious psychic conflicts, competing ideas, feelings, fantasies, dreams and motivations which escape awareness until they are discovered in the therapeutic frame.
Since psychic content drives our behaviour, it is paramount to examine this content in a safe and secure relationship with a well-trained regulated professional who can offer clear, cogent, nonjudgmental feedback to help the client/patient develop new ways of solving problems in their lives, reduce suffering and move to a more serene and self-fulfilled position.
I help people find new ways to deal with their spouse, partners, friends, kids, extended family, their studies or job.
