What is Psychoanalysis?

Psychoanalysis involves some simillarities with other forms of counselling in that there is a client and therapist, however the therapist may respond less obviously to a clients immidiate emotions. This is because the psychotherapist analyses the content and emotions of what is being said to understand problems which may be unaware to the client, or what we call “unconscious”.

How Does It Work?

Psychoanalysis also involves looking into past situations and bringing up things for the client that may have been repressed which influence current behaviours. Through my integrative approach to psychotherapy, I can assimilate psychoanalytic therapy into our counselling sessions. It is worth noting however that psychoanalysis involves time commitment and requires a client to possibly attend regular sessions over a longer period of time than maybe Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This is due to the depth and processing work that psychoanalysis requires. It can however help discover issues which have been hidden within ourselves.

Modern Psychoanalysis continues to employ the same underlying principles as when it was founded however incorperates a modernised client experience. In psychoanalysis the trust relationship between client and therapist is of major importance as establishing this connection will help a client bring issues into the room.

Psychoanalysis can be appropriate for people experiencing personality problems, stress, depression, fulfillment, ‘mid-life crisis’, learning difficulties, school phobias, eating or sleeping disorders and abuse.

My name is Richard Bullen, a trustworthy and professional therapist. I have gained a Masters in Integrative Therapy with a BSc in Psychotherapy, whilst also being a registered BACP member 374258.

I have been passionate about helping and making a positive impact to people for all of my life.

Originally born in Seattle, United States; I have spent the majority of my life in North-West England. To continue this passion I had, it was my dream to become a therapist. Mastering my craft through university, whilst meeting with a vast variety of clients from diverse backgrounds, has led me to take this knowledge to practice in my patient-led solution to any individual who may need help.

It would be my pleasure to help you.
