Bita Riazati offers psychology and psychoanalysis in Melbourne – Hawthorn Clinical Private Practice

I offer psychology and 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 various psychological conflicts, psychosomatic problems, anxieties, other neurotic or psychotic problems.

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

Learning and development is an ongoing process, and I continue my professional development by attending courses and clinical seminars. I receive regular supervision on my clinical practice, 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 psychoanalysis for many years, a requirement for the practice of psychoanalysis. These efforts help me create a space where the focus is on your speech, and on your progress in the sessions.
