Who is Psychoanalysis Therapy for?

Psychoanalysis is a talking therapy thought to help people with a number of emotional and psychological problems.

How Does Psychoanalysis Therapy Work?

Psychoanalysis is based on the theory that distress can be reduced by making unconscious thoughts and motivations conscious. This therapy technique therefore involves a detailed exploration of past experiences over the longer term. Your therapist will try to help you understand your past and how events from your early life could be affecting you now.

I had a course of CBT Counselling with The Harley Psychology & Therapy Group (Richmond) and although it didn’t provide me with the quick fix miracle solution I was hoping for, it has made my problems feel more manageable.
