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 should not be a theoretical and structural 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.
I am interested in associative forms of writing and thought, both unconscious and conscious, as a continual and unfinished process. This blog is an exploration of this.
