Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a powerful, highly effective treatment approach for many people struggling with difficult emotions. In the words of Freud, “Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” This form of therapy can help unearth and process unconscious emotions, paving the way for psychological growth.

I struggled for many years with mild to moderate depression and eventually decided to speak with a psychoanalytic psychotherapist about it. I attended the therapist for two years and over that time, I was able to figure out the family dynamics that had contributed to my low mood. I am very grateful for the experience of therapy because it has enabled me to become a more content and confident person. Thank you
My partner recommended I speak to a therapist because my angry moods were causing problems in our relationship. Initially I found it difficult to speak about myself but over time, it has become something that I find really valuable because not only has my temperament changed and I am less volatile, but I now have a deep understanding about myself. I am kinder to myself and to those around me and I have therapy to thank for this.
Speaking with a psychoanalyst helped me to make decisions about my sexuality. I was really embarrassed to tell anyone in the beginning but now I am really proud of myself and it is the first thing I suggest to my friends when they are sad or confused.
