About Me


Lacanian Psychoanalyst member of The Centre of Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) and member of The College of Psychoanalysts UK (CP-UK)


UKCP registered

My name is Juana Cavaliere Silva. I am a psychoanalyst working in a Lacanian orientation with 15 years of experience. I have a practice in Brick Lane, Shoreditch and in South East London. I offer sessions in English and in Portuguese for adults, young adults as well as couples. 


I also work as a supervisor and as a Clinical Services Manager in two Counselling Centres. 

My background is in Clinical Psychology. In 2005 I finished my studies at PUC University in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I joined the psychoanalytical training at Centre of Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) in 2006 which lead to my UKCP registration. Alongside the training I have worked in a number of specialised services in London for patients experiencing Psychosis, Personality Disorders, Substance Misuse, and Eating Disorders. I have also worked with expectant mothers and new mothers who experience Pre/Post Natal Depression and Pre/Post Natal Psychosis.
