What kind of people go to Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy?

Many people who suffer from lack of confidence, from anxiety states or panic attacks, sadness or depression, obsessions, compulsive behaviour such as eating disorders, repeated problematic relationships or personal difficulties can be helped by psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

A person sometimes looks for this type of therapy if he or she feels life has lost meaning or is deeply unsatisfactory in some way. Or perhaps they are experiencing emotional distress within themselves or in their relationships.

An individual who has had some kind of breakdown may also be helped. He or she may be aware of a serious problem but not be able to name exactly what is wrong. Or someone may know what the problem is but feel unable to resolve it.
