Meet Our Psychotherapists

Passionate. Dedicated. Trusted.

Our Credentials

Each psychotherapist is fully qualified and holds at least one masters level training in psychotherapy. Many of the therapists hold additional masters training in related fields.

This means you can have peace of mind in our ability to do what’s best for you.

All counselling and psychotherapy in the clinic is delivered from Psychoanalytically trained therapists. This method aims at the root of suffering and helps people to go beyond it.

This is entirely different than just working on the surface-level presentation of symptoms and can have much longer lasting affects.

It also means we’re equipped to deal with almost any symptom imaginable.

Each therapist has a minimum of five years under their belt working with the public in similar settings. These include in private practice, hospitals, universities and rehabilitation centres.

This means we have a broad range of experience with all sorts of symptoms from anxiety, and depression to relationship issues and psychosis.

Each psychotherapist is accredited with at least two awarding bodies. These include APPI, ICP, and PSI.

Development as a psychoanalyst isn’t like usual therapies. It’s not about ticking off ‘200’ hours. Our psychoanalysts have spent years in their own twice weekly psychoanalysis. Usually surpassing 5+ years in therapy.

Each therapist is also engaged in regular supervision and clinical development at seminars and workshops.
