What is Psychoanalysis?

Psychoanalysis is a treatment approach based on the observation that individuals are often unaware of many of the factors that determine their emotions and behaviour.

These unconscious factors may be the source of considerable distress and unhappiness, sometimes in the form of recognizable symptoms and at other times as troubling personality traits, difficulties in work and/or in love relationships, or disturbances in mood and self-esteem.

Psychoanalysis, as a treatment method, is based on concepts concerning unconscious mental processes originally formulated by Sigmund Freud and then further developed by many experienced psychoanalysts.

Psychoanalytic treatment can reveal how these unconscious factors affect current relationships and patterns of behaviour, and help the individual to deal better with the realities of adult life.

In the course of intensive psychoanalytic treatment, the nature of the relationship which develops between patient and analyst will have significant features deriving from the “internal world” of the analysand and become available for experience and exploration by the analysand and analyst together

How are psychoanalysis sessions?

The most intensive form of psychoanalytic treatment is Psychoanalysis itself. This involves scheduling regular “sessions” of 45 or 50 minutes several times each week for a number of years

The commitment to this analytic “setting” is a serious one on the part of both patient and analyst

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy

Specialized model of therapy

Psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy draws on theories and practices of analytical psychology and psychoanalysis.

It is a therapeutic process which helps patients understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present.

It differs from most other therapies in aiming for deep seated change in personality and emotional development.

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy involves in general fewer sessions per week. Some patients start with one session a week, come to feel the need for more frequent sessions
