Psychoanalysis is a particular way of thinking about ourselves, our lives and the world around us. Psychoanalytic thinking places the study of the unconscious aspects of the mind as being central to our behaviour, thinking and our emotional experience. We might say that the role of psychoanalytic psychotherapy is to help reveal those unconscious aspects that are holding us back from fulfilling our potential. It also helps us to understand why we keep recreating the same patterns in our lives, and why we can sabotage or deprive ourselves of sustaining good moments in our lives.
