> hi. does anyone have any experience with analysis? meeting w. a therapist multiple times per week, on the couch?
> im considering doing analysis and starting working with an analyst. my partner is dead set against it. she states that its an addiction, too time consuming and will disrupt our relationship. i feel the opposite. i think it will help us. we have not been together long but id like to find a way to help her feel more comfortable with it.
I know this is a personal question, but what are your current needs? What issues or discomforts would you like to address in psychotherapy?
I have never tried psychoanalysis or psychodynamic psychotherapies, and really know nothing about them. Yes - Id Ego Superego. Peeling the onion. I know some of the fundamentals, but that doesn't substitute for actually trying these therapies in real life. Deep stuff.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
