Rodney Street Counselling & Analytic Practice was founded by Simon Fisher in 2000. He has worked for universities, NHS Departments, private clinics, and community organisations. Born in Merseyside, he was educated in London, Israel, Texas, Germany, Italy, and Oxford. His initial academic passion was philosophy: especially hermeneutics and German philosophy. His interest in psychoanalysis began whilst he was a research fellow at Oxford in the 1970s and '80s. After much analysis and clinical training he returned to Liverpool in 1990 for clinical work.  After two decades in the NHS he became professional lead in psychotherapy. 

Now he is now working as an independent counsellor without ties to state, voluntary,  medical services, or employee assistance schemes.


ABOUT PSYCHOANALYSIS



Simon and Qtmir: Liverpool



Psychoanalysis, the original modern talking cure, was invented by Sigmund Freud, Josef Breuer -a General Practitioner- and their patients. From these early days in Austria analysis expanded internationally until analyst and couch became the ultimate Hollywood cliche.

Psychoanalysis developed into different schools, but common to all is a dedication to spontaneous speaking and careful listening. Through analysis one may re-jig or re-programme oneself  by uncovering unconscious scripts and desires that determine expectations, behaviours, thinking, and phantasy.

What can-not be changed, re-cycled, or diverted needs to be accepted or mourned.

Because psychoanalysis is labour intensive for both customers and their professionals, it is rarely available for adults on the NHS.  Nevertheless contemporary psychoanalysis increasingly attracts people seeking an alternative to the generalized, structured, and highly regulated therapies promoted by health officials and governments throughout Europe.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century analysis remains a versatile and sophisticated counselling option for those who require unhurried careful listening.

Analysis may be long-term lasting several years. On the other hand, Freud’s counselling of Gustav Mahler occurred during an afternoon stroll in a leafy Viennese suburb.
