Looking for psychoanalysis?


As a psychoanalyst in training with the Centre for Lacanian Analysis Aotearoa I am now available to see patients in a supervised capacity.

Why psychoanalysis?


Often referred to as the ‘talking cure,’ psychoanalysis offers an alternative approach to therapy that emphasizes engaged dialogue as a means of working through the perceived ‘problems’ or ‘conflicts’ that cause us suffering in life.

It is a non-judgemental process that respects your unique experience as an individual. Rather than trying to simply ‘manage’ symptoms, it seeks to explore the associations and affects that underlie them in order to generate insight into one’s experience & produce lasting change.

Situated in the intersection between the arts & science, psychoanalysis has the unique capacity to speak to the breadth of our experience as subjects who love, dream, suffer, and desire.

Analysis with me


I am currently conducting online consultations. As an analyst in training I am able to work with people at a discounted rate that can be negotiated relative to their means. Please contact me to organise a free preliminary session and discuss whether or not psychoanalysis may be the right approach for you.
