What can psychoanalysis do?

Psychoanalysis recognizes that sometimes life becomes too much. We experience
ourselves less then whole, incapabable or unable to deal with what life throws our
way. We are conflicted, we are split between incompatible desires and unable to maintain
our sense of self. We experience a suffering that exceeds our known ways of coping
and dealing with it. This is where psychoanalysis may help.

Through the process of analysis we gain an insight into the working of our mental
life. We may gain access to knowledge we may not want to know about but …in the
process of engaging with it, we may find our connection with ourselves and the world
around us again.

PSYCHOANALYSIS may help with:

  • Difficulties in relationships
  • Feeling trapped, isolated, frustrated, anxious, confused
  • Separation grief
  • Depression
  • Sexual problems
  • Eating disorders
  • Parenting issues
  • Loss
