This ‘talking treatment’ is effective for the following: Anxiety, Depression, Phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Bereavement, Obsessional Neurosis, Stress and Relationship difficulties. In psychoanalytic psychotherapy, a patient attends a fifty-minute session once, twice or three times weekly on a regular basis. On average, treatment lasts two years, but it may be that the individual feels sufficiently well to finish after a year, or may continue for much longer. Over time, a therapeutic relationship develops between patient and therapist which supports a powerful process, that of mapping out the patient’s internal world and psychic reality. In turn this enables a force for lasting change. This treatment is highly effective for reducing anxiety and the inhibition and loss of meaning to life which often accompanies these symptoms.
A consultation provides an individual with the opportunity to take stock of his or her life and to consider treatment options in a confidential and contained setting. There are usually at least two meetings, each lasting an hour and a half.
Clinical supervision for trainees on a fortnightly or monthly basis.
