Bilingual Persian Farsi English

My clinical practice is informed by the evidence and theory from the work of the French Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst, Jacques Lacan. He extended on the method and techniques of Freud for the treatment of patients suffering from unconscious conflicts and other psychological concerns. Furthermore, I had extensive training in methods including Cognitive Behavioural therapies, Mindfulness and interpersonal therapies.

My Approach

I offer an empathic service where you are invited to give voice to your concerns and be listened to deeply. Following an assessment of your problem, I will then discuss a treatment plan, which will continue to be adjusted based on an ongoing, evolving and collaborative formulation with you. I place utmost care and respect for ethics in my clinical work, and I offer treatment according to these ethics.

 My approach is tailored to each individual client, as we get to learn something about your desire, your individual history and your needs

Continuing Professional Training

Treatment may be short term or long term depending on your presenting problem & needs …

Learning and development is an ongoing process, and as registered psychologists we must stay up to date with the latest clinical research and best practice approaches and interventions. So I continue to refine my method and clinical practice by attending courses and clinical seminars with the Australian Centre for Psychoanalysis. In addition to this, I have also undergone my own psychoanalysis for several years. Moreover, I receive regular secondary consultation on my clinical practice, so you can be certain that the highest level of care, quality and ethics has been applied to your treatment.  Psychology Today Profile
