I offer psychology and clinical psychoanalysis in Melbourne. My practice is informed by the work of the French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Jacques Lacan. He expanded on the method of Sigmund Freud for the treatment of those suffering from  psychological conflicts, psychosomatic problems, anxieties, other neurotic or psychotic problems.



Psychoanalysis is a treatment method, which is practical in the sense that there is an attempt to answer a question, to solve a problem, or to cure somebody, or at least to address one’s suffering. But the other thing that psychoanalysis does is to enable somebody to speak. It is an attempt to create the conditions in which somebody can speak themselves as fully as possible. —Adam Phillips


Other than psychoanalysis, I have had extensive training in psychiatric management, assessment and treatment methods such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT). However, in my experience behavioural therapies often given short term results with effects that do not last. I prefer to work with the individual to help the person describe his or her problem or concern in his or her words, rather than symptoms or labels described in a medical manual.


Quality Provision Psychoanalyst Melbourne

Learning and personal development is a process, and I continue mine by attending clinical seminars, conferences and symposiums. I also present at some of the conferences. I receive supervision on my clinical practice regularly, so you can be certain that the highest level of care, quality and ethics has been applied to your treatment. I have also undergone my own training psychoanalysis for many years (+7 years), a requirement for the practice of clinical psychoanalysis, which has been in addition to my psychology training of 6 years. These efforts help me create a space where the focus is on your speech, and on your progress in the sessions.
