I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Lacanian Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
Taking part in a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy means to find the words to say something you can't say because you don't recognize what it is, or on the other hand, you are aware of it and you don't feel comfortable talking about it.
Conversely there could also be a symptom that you can't explain or a trauma.
Furthermore, it also means not only trying to treat a symptom, but also to do without it. As a result, if you consider the symptoms as signals of something unconscious, and you find the way to express yourself through words, these weaknesses could turn into strengths.
January 2014 - Present
I'm a Psychologist and Lacanian Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist.
I work using a psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approach.
At the centre of the therapy there is the person's uniqueness. The treatment proceeds from the breaking point, or from a symptom, or perhaps from something the patient is not aware of, through to the possibility that these weaknesses are converted into strengths.
