What is psychoanalysis?
Psychoanalysis is a
therapeutic method with the power and effectiveness to eradicate psychic
Conceived and created by Sigmund Freud more than 100 years ago, and
reoriented later on by Jacques Lacan, it continues being my first
therapeutic choice, as it acts on the patient’s unconscious contents which
influence the symptom.
Patients suffer the pain of their symptoms which always, at different
levels, invalidate them. Psychoanalysts invite that patient who is
suffering and asks for help, to see the objective from a different
perspective, to the inside, as well as to revise and rewrite their own
history…to listen to themselves, to assume the enjoyment of their symptoms
in which they are involved, to get to know and defend their wish and to
enjoy the happiness that implies reaching it.
Psychoanalysis has the particularity of being a different experience from
psychology, psychiatry, and the multiple psychotherapies.
