I also offer supervision to my colleagues based on psychoanalytic theory and research-based neuroscience practices.
I have studied extensively in these fields and use them both in my work. Psychoanalytic theory is tremendously helpful in areas such as attachment theory, personality theory, and the structure and function of ground rules for therapy. I have found it very useful for helping patients make sense of their past and how it affects their lives in the present day.
However, while neuroscience research has confirmed many of the principles and practices of psychoanalytic thinking, it has also led to the evolution of many new techniques which therapists can usefully incorporate in their work.
In recent years I have completed online training courses by Dan Siegel, Bessel Van der Kolk, Stephen Porges, Janina Fisher, Lisa Firestone, Jack Kornfield, Allan Schore, Yalom and other leading experts in the field of mindfulness. I have also recently completed a course on the Adverse Childhood Experiences study.
