"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." —Carl Jung
Psychoanalysis opens the passageway from the psyche to the conscious.
The development of one’s self is founded deep within, embedded from the earliest age. Our upbringing influences who we are today ; yet, we needn’t be a victim of it. Applied psychotherapy provides the tools for understanding one’s past in order to be liberated and free to move forward.
The objective of analytical psychotherapy is to resolve certain inner conflicts via a deeper understanding of one’s self, of the environment from which we come, allowing us to recognize and overcome our obstacles. We are all faced with issues which prevent us from moving forward, or going for what we seek.
The role of the the analytical therapist is to provide a safe, secure and neutral environment in which you will have the keys to understand your past, and to open the door to a brighter future.
The length of therapy depends on the needs of each individual or couple ; it is based, not only on listening, but also an interactive exchange. The role of the therapist is to guide, not command.
Communication is the key in all relationships, and is vital for a solid trust between counselor and patient. Applied pscyhoanalysis teaches us to tune into the unconscious, leading to transference between patient and therapist. The bond is one of mutual trust and commitment. This connection leads to self-awareness and self-confidence.

This short-term method focuses on adult relationships and attachment or bonding. The therapist and patients observe patterns in the relationship and work towards creating a more secure bond to move in a positive direction. To accomplish this, the analyst helps you to discover deeper past feelings which are recurring in your present relationship. You will learn new ways to listen to your partner, as well as, express your emotions in order to have productive communication.
