well first of all, ive done it before. so i know what to expect.
i think its a good idea because once per week therapy isnt particularly helpful in terms of resolving neurotic habits. its just supportive.
multiple times per week analysis is helpful.
wrt to what i want to get out of it, i want some more peace, some more flexibility and some more control over my choices when im not feeling the way i want to feel.
freuds theories arent what drives a lot of modern analytic theories. there are many other theorists who have appropriate theories which are used to inform analysis.
