Psychoanalytic Therapy

Sigmund Freud, the Austrian physician originally popularised the psychological and psychotherapeutic theories, along with their associated techniques. Psychoanalytical therapies were the first practices to be practiced and called as psychotherapy. This therapy encourages the verbalization of client or patientís thoughts, which could include fantasies, dreams, free associations, etc. From these thoughts, the therapist or analyst formulates the nature of the unconscious conflicts, to understand the causes of patientís symptoms and character problems. The liberation from the effects of the unconscious material is achieved through bringing this material into the conscious mind. Psychoanalysis is based on the theory that a personís development is determined by the events in early childhood and that the conflicts between conscious and unconscious, or repressed, material can materialise in the form of mental or emotional disturbances, for example: neurosis, neurotic traits, anxiety, depression etc.

This therapy of psychoanalysis is less intensive and is beneficial for individuals who know and understand some things about themselves. Clients attend around one to three sessions in a week, with the Psychoanalytic Therapists in Chennai, hence it is less taxing. For people who can feel that their difficulties have affected them for a long time, and who feel the need and time for relieving themselves of this emotional distress can be helped substantially. The counsellors in Chennai understand their inner life through various sessions of deep exploration. The therapist and the client form a team, where they uncover the individualís unconscious needs and thoughts. This approach helps them understand how past experiences have affected them. At CBRT, they can work together with the well-trained psychotherapists in chennai and create a more fulfilling life for themselves.
