Don't understand traditional lie on the couch analysis, but I disagree with the poster who said therapy is just rent-a-friend. I saw a p-doc in psychodynamic (sit across from one another, engage in a dialogueI therapy for a long while and I can't even begin to express how much it helped me. Unlike friends (and at the time I had no friends because I was completely unable to be vulnerable around another human being), therapy means working on you and you alone. You say I'm feeling bad and a friend says, actually I'm feeling great. A therapist focuses on you and you know very little about them.

I had a severe trauma background which I had never shared with anyone and had put so far behind me that I truly thought of that person as a different person from me. I badly needed to talk about it and get help trying to integrate it. I could not have done this with a friend. I needed a skilled professional, accustomed to dealing with trauma.
