Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you experience. It facilitates your awareness of parts of your unconscious. The objective of psychoanalytic therapy is for you to attain personal insight and utilise it if you wish to.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you confront. It explores your thoughts, feelings and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or find appropriate methods of coping.
