What is psychoanalysis?
Psychoanalysis is a specialized and effective long-term psychotherapy for a variety of persistent emotional disorders and problems in living. People often seek and benefit from psychoanalysis after experiences with shorter-term therapies and/or medications that have not produced significant change in their personal or relationship problems.
Psychoanalysis focuses on an in-depth examination of all aspects of the person’s subjective experience and inner life. The benefits of psychoanalysis can be transformative: as the patient experiences the positive results of more flexible, adaptive and less reactive ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Freud originally defined a treatment success as one’s increased ability to work and love.
