About psychoanalysis 

Have you ever found yourself thinking thoughts such as, "I can't cope", or "I'm a failure" or "I have to be perfect"? If you have you are far from alone. 

But these negative ways of thinking about yourself and your life aren't usually based in reality. More often, they are the result of distressing events experienced during childhood, or in the past. 

This is why, in psychoanalytic therapy, we spend a little time exploring your past experiences, so that you can become more aware of how they may have shaped the way you feel and act now. 

This self-knowledge can be very liberating when we're confused and unhappy. Once we begin to understand our emotions, we feel less shackled by them, and free to explore new ways of being. Our job as psychoanalysts is to help you feel supported, and if you want to, to help you make lasting changes in your life. Please see our pages on Psychoanalysisand Psychoanalytic therapy to find out more.

Your Comments/Questions

I had regular sessions with Melike while she was based in London. I was very confused about a relationship I was in at the time, and had always suffered from anxiety. Melike is extremely kind, professional and perceptive. With her help I was able to identify some of the reasons that lay behind my feelings towards myself and others. While I wouldn't pretend this immediately 'cured' my anxiety, it felt liberating and helped cause a shift in my perspective. These insights helped me at the time and are still helping me now.
