Much as we like to fantasize that life is easy and that we can create a perfect world around us, the reality is that living is fraught with ups and downs. Do these life stressors make you think that you have a mental health problem that could be helped by psychotherapy?
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, or obsessive thoughts you may feel that you should see a doctor or psychotherapist. Perhaps you are having repeated trouble in work situations or recurring difficulty in relationships. These problems are very amenable to being helped by a psychoanalyst.
The purpose of psychoanalytic treatment is to help people change and progress in their lives. The development of self-awareness or insight is a step in achieving that progress. Psychoanalytic treatment explores how unconscious factors affect current relationships and patterns of thought, emotion, and behavior.
