I'm a trainee in clinical psychoanalysis based in London. I have a particular interest in the work of W.R Bion and Melanie Klein. This blog is a place to publish my reflections during the process of training as well as more general reflections on life, culture, and society.
Psychoanalysis is a body of knowledge, a system of treatment and a theory of mind. It is a continual living process. It is what happens when two people agree to meet at a certain time and speak. It is not a theoretical overlay which is imposed on people but rather an ever evolving understanding of being. It is not and should not be an arcane and calcified practice, it is about human truths and it should be for everyone.
