My sister did psychoanalysis four times a week (the whole bit -- lying on a couch etc) for I don't know how long and it didn't help her a bit. I did regular once a week sitting up and dialogue-ing psychotherapy and it helped me immeasurably and started helping within weeks.

I think there are lots a variables here. How badly do you want to change and grow? How good a "fit" is your therapist, analyst or whatever? Do you look forward to seeing him/her? Have conversations in your head in advance of therapy? How hard are you willing to work -- in the sense of being willing to face hard truths about yourself and admit to flaws and sources of unhappiness?

If you're willing to work hard, to change the self you brought in, feel you fit will with your therapist, then any sort of therapy will help. If you're not willing to work toward change and have misgivings about your therapist, no therapy will help.
