Psychoanalysis is a type of talk therapy that deals with both the conscious mind and unconscious mind, which is thought to influence your emotional and mental health. Psychoanalysis is rooted in the teachings of Sigmund Freud, which emphasized the idea that your social, behavioral, and emotional issues can be relieved by bringing your unconscious thoughts, feelings, and desires to the surface and dealing with them.

If you are finding it difficult to cope with everyday life or are on a journey to self improvement, psychoanalysis can help a great deal. Wherever you are located in Alabama from Auburn to Tuscaloosa or even Huntsville, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Psychoanalysis Therapy Benefits

Some people may be unsure about psychoanalysis, especially if they are only familiar with their conscious mind. When led by a quality therapist, psychoanalysis therapy sessions allow you to get to know yourself on a deeper level and understand more about the origins of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

As repressed memories and unconscious thoughts are identified through psychoanalysis, your psychoanalysis therapist will use tailored techniques to help resolve them.

People report the following benefits from working with a psychoanalysis therapist:

  • A reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Relief from fears and phobias.
  • An increased sense of self-worth.
  • The ability to manage relationships more effectively.
  • Lasting healing from trauma.
  • New self-awareness and self-understanding.
  • A better overall quality of life.

Psychoanalysis is one of many types of therapy. If you’d like to learn more about your options, check out this article: How do I know what type of therapy is best for me?
