The Analysis is a crucial experience in which a person, motivated by his or her own desire, demands a comprehension about what is producing suffering in his or her own life from painful events such as: illness, loss, grief, separation, trauma or abuse, difficulties relating to others such as friends or family, or intimate relationships. People confront a devaluation of themselves, generating states of guilt, anguish, depression, suicidal ideas, feelings of loneliness, doubts or anxiety. The expression of these symptoms in the body and psyche can be repetitive and can make simple tasks or life in general unbearable. These symptoms can be the visible manifestation of a deeper and earlier suffering in a person’s life, that may not be initially obvious, or recalled. In this case, through an analysis experience, a person will open a unique path towards the understanding of mental pain or discomfort, in order to establish a dignified relationship with themselves, and the desire to live with themselves and with others.
Thinking and reflecting on oneself is a therapeutic activity that has transformative effects for the existence of a person in the short, medium and long term. Through the act of placing words where there was previously a void and by symbolizing repetitive images or flashbacks that are expressed in nightmares, which in certain cases evoke trauma, blockages, fears and unconscious self-destructive behaviors, analytical work invites a person to explore consciously the sources of one’s own unconscious suffering.
In this sense I propose:
1. An analytical psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis (on the couch), which generally takes time to carry out a process of transformation in mental functioning. This is a personal experience and takes a particular timeframe for each person. The time to see what is happening, the time to understand his or her own history and the time to conclude a new personal identification with its own desire to live, created in the course of analysis will vary from person to person.
2. A brief and supportive psychotherapy in a moment of crisis to treat a particular difficulty, which consists of treating a painful event or specific problem, where therapeutic support is necessary. This can be performed in person, or over telephone / videocall.
