My therapist is the psychoanalytic type. I completely believe that this is the right approach for me. she seems able to deal with my transference issues. We've discussed my feelings for her, but I keep saying, "yes, but how is this going to actually help me". so the news that you have actually found some relief is very encouraging. She is really pushing me to do 2 sessions / week at the moment, and I am resisting like mad, but I fear I might need that intensity to get further.

> I've been seeing this one for eight months, although I did see a different therapist for several years previously- without feeling that it was helping much. This one is a psychoanalyst and he is wonderfully trained in all the complexities of transference, and how to help his patients get better by using it.
> Psychoanalysts are much different now than what we all thought previously- very interactive and empathic. Some are M.D.s, but just as many are psychologists and social workers. A lot of the psychologists and social workers have had a numbers of years of psychoanalytic training, but may not have actually graduated from one of the Psychoanalytic Institutes. I don't think that matters, but I do think some analytic training is immensely valuable.
