Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you encounter. It fosters your consciousness of parts of your unconscious. An aim of psychoanalytic therapy is for you to gain personal insight and use it if you decide to.

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your mind, emotions and actions. It offers you psychological interventions and mental health support. The objective of psychological therapy is to help you alleviate symptoms.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your ideas, emotions and significant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or discover suitable methods of coping.

Thoughts on Mental Health

Psychoanalysis is based on the work of Sigmund Freud. Freud observed that we know very little about the factors determining our emotions and behaviour. However we tend to believe that we know all that there is to know. He understood that there is a conflict between what we know and what we actually don't know, and saw that this conflict makes us suffer and fall ill. Freud invented psychoanalysis as a tool to investigate the psyche. Psychoanalysts do not deal with objective, measurable phenomena, in the way psychiatrists or clinical psychologists would. Psychiatrists are medical doctors; clinical psychologists share the same, medical point of view. Rather than the "objective" aspects of human suffering, psychoanalysts are interested in its subjective ones: They will invite you to reflect on the difficulty you are facing. How do you understand it? What does it mean for you? What was it in your own personal history that makes it so difficult to do such and such? Why do you find yourself unable to choose what is good for you?
