About Psychoanalysis


  •  Psychoanalysis is a form of psychological treatment, based on an understanding of the unconscious mind, arising out of the pioneering work of Sigmund Freud.
  • There are those who claim that psychoanalysis is limited to the theories arising solely out of the work of Freud, Klein and a number of other theorists concerned principally with the nature of early relationships.
  •  Others take a much broader view of psychoanalysis, which includes the work of Jung and analytical psychology; the Lacanian or French school; and the phenomenological and philosophical schools.
  •  This is the pluralistic tradition of psychoanalysis, which exists throughout the world, and it is this inclusive understanding, rather than the narrower one, which I adhere to


Psychoanalysis offers a number of possibilities, including:-

  •  A means of understanding the nature of the mind and its development.
  • A route to insight and the better understanding of yourself and relationships with others.
  •  A form of treatment for understanding and dealing with mental pain and suffering.
