When people consider psychoanalysis, they imagine Freud smoking a cigar and rubbing his moustache. However, such image has created an impression that such technique has been initiated from the past. Psychoanalysis may have certainly created an image problem. But with today’s modern technology, psychoanalysis has become an updated therapy where the psychoanalyst like Patrick Mahony awaits patients and give them more time to be comfortable, relaxed and trust him with their personal information.
As psychoanalysis is a form of psychological treatment, it has been proven useful for people suffering with longstanding difficulties on how they feel and think about themselves, the environment and their relationships with other people. The process can involve short term treatments that can last a week for anxiety and depression that has brought about stress, loss and trauma. But for major psychological problems they may take more time like weeks, months or years to undergo the psychoanalysis.
The process had first been developed to treat patients that don’t respond to other medical or psychological techniques available. Freud has indeed made a change in the process for a number of reasons, which brings back the unconscious past of the patient and relates it to what he or she is today. Many psychoanalysts like Patrick Mahony has found out how the unconscious factors have greatly influenced the present including the illness. Therefore, he can implement or impose diagnosis and suggestions on how one can overcome the illness, make him better and move on with better lives.
If you need to consult with a psychoanalyst like Patrick Mahony, you need to arrange an appointment and meet up with him in his office. He has undergone psychoanalytic training and some doctoral studies to make his therapies specialized and more dedicated to the needs of his patients. When it’s the first time to meet up with him, his therapy sessions may be done few times a week until the patient learns to trust him. If his expert advice can have immediate effects on the patient, then he may suggest fewer visits until they can manage and stand on their own. However, his services are only offered for Canadian and British clients.
