This paper concerns an eighteen-month therapy which took place in an NHS context. The patient presented to the service with depression, and a question about whether he might 'be bi-polar'. As well as un-mourned losses,the work uncovered issues with the relationship between the patient and his mother.
Myra Connell is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, with a private practice in Birmingham. She recently completed her training at the Guild of Psychotherapists in London. The training at the Guild is a pluralist one, which gives space for consideration of different and sometimes disparate theorists: trainees are encouraged to find the modality that best suits them and their particular patient. In this case the work draws on the thinking of Thomas Ogden, Jessica Benjamin and Dana Birksted-Breen, along with various post-Kleinian analysts.
