Aino-Marjatta Mäki Lacanian orientation in Bristol, UK.

My Practice

What is it?

I see adults and young people for consultation, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in Central Bristol. Whether you are interested of psychotherapy, practical autism support or psychoanalysis, I orient the work by the singular difficulties of each person I work with. This means that my practice is always person-centred and flexible.

In each case, the work takes place through an open and confidential conversation.Through a well oriented discussion it is possible to extract and name what exactly does not work in one's life. This way the work opens a possibility for each individual to invent and construct new solutions to a life’s varied situations.

The exact form the individual work will take remains open and will be planned in each case, one by one. For this reason individual sessions may sometimes be longer or shorter, once a week or once a month – I adjust my practice to your situation and needs.

When necessary and agreed with my clients, I am able to work in close collaboration with any other professional or institution involved in the overall care of the people I work with.

Who is it for?

I work with anyone who wants to know more about why things are not working in their life. I work with practical difficulties relating to work or studies, and consult people with problems in love or family life. I also support and work with people who have suffered structural violence or police repression.
I am experienced in working with variety of mood and affective disorders, with individuals who are formally diagnosed with personality disorder, OCD, PTSD, anxiety or depression. I also have a particular interest and experience in working with neurodevelopmental difficulties such as ADD, ADHD or autism, and supporting people with learning disabilities and selective mutism.

I welcome people who are struggling with interpersonal difficulties, trauma, eating disorders, PMS and PMDD or relationship difficulties including problems of sex, gender and sexuality.

But in order to work with me you do not need to specify your difficulties by any given or above mentioned discourse. I see people who come with variety of questions about the madness of life in general.

My ethical code

Client confidentiality and statutory safeguarding of vulnerable people is part of my ethical code and my practice is fully insured.

The ethics of my practice include respecting the right of each individual for self-determination beyond any clinical, social or gendered category and norm.
