A TALK BY IRO ZOUBOPOULOU

Date: Saturday 10th March 2018

Time: From 2pm to 3pm

Venue: Alliance Française Cambridge, 60 Hills Road

Price: Free – First arrived, first served

Talk conducted in English

Many women are led to knock the door of a psychoanalyst due to difficulties, misfortunes or tribulations they come across in life. During the course of their analysis they discover that the deeper cause lies in the relationship with their mother. The mother-daughter relationship is decisive for the daughter’s life choices, as well as her development throughout her life. Form quite early, the mother is the one who provides the infant with food, safety, protection and comfort.

Under which conditions, however, is this affectionate relationship possible to be transformed later in life to a field of rivalry, jealousness, or resentment? What is at stake behind the antagonism? Is it possible for the passionate maternal love to be harmful?

According to psychoanalysis, the mother is the first love-object of the daughter and, inevitably, the traits of this relationship will echo later in her life. This extraordinarily important relationship carries a deep complexity. The purpose of the talk is to illuminate and explain the dark, not so well known, sides of this unique relationship, using the psychoanalytic teachings of Freud and Lacan. Only if one understands deeply, will be able to forgive, feel relieved, be liberated and move forward in life, using this knowledge to her advantage.

Iro Zoubopoulou is a practising psychotherapist of Lacanian orientation. She has graduated from the Department of Social Administration and Political Science of the Democritus University of Thrace-Greece, with a major in Social Work (’04). After graduation, she worked for two years in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece as a field worker, dealing with the integration problems of the Muslim minority. Following that she started working in community clinics with chronically mentally ill patients. Between 2007 and 2014 she worked as a full-time therapist at the National Organisation Against Drugs (OKANA), treating drug addicts, gaining a wealth of clinical experience. Iro attends the Clinical Section of Athens since 2008, being an active member of the Lacanian School of Athens. She performs research, has presented clinical cases in conferences and cartels and has translated a number of articles. Since 2014, Iro works as an independent psychoanalyst. She has been under analysis since 2008 and lives in Cambridge since 2015. In 2017, she completed a full-time Masters in Psychoanalysis at Kingston University graduating with a Distinction. She speaks French, English and Greek.
