What is Psychotherapy ?


That is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you to find ways to deal with the emotional issues you’re facing, or to understand why you are feeling a certain way.

Then, psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential and impartial space in which to explore your feelings. Your therapist will encourage you to talk about your thoughts, feelings and emotions and will respectfully listen and support you without judgement or criticism.

At some point in our lives most of us will experience times when we’re overwhelmed or feel that we cannot cope. If these feelings are left unchecked they can grow and develop with the potential to spill out into other areas of our lives – our relationships, careers, studies and personal lives can be impacted to the extent that we feel unable to continue to live a happy life.

Finally, psychotherapy is a personal and private experience, designed to help you resolve whatever individual problems you are facing.


What is Psychoanalysis?


According International Psychoanalytic Association IPA:

Psychoanalysis is both a theory of the human mind and a therapeutic practice.

It was founded by Sigmund Freud between 1885 and 1939 and continues to be developed by psychoanalysts all over the world. Psychoanalysis has four major areas of application:

  1. theory of how the mind works
  2. treatment method
  3. method of research, and
  4. as a way of viewing cultural and social phenomena like literature, art, movies, performances, politics and groups.
