No matter what reason you have for consulting with an analyst or counsellor, they will be able to help you with a whole host of concerns and difficulties including problems at work or home or with your relationships. You may feel stressed or even depressed and your psychological dilemmas may be expressing themselves in a mix of different ways such as leaving you with eating disorders or even feelings of suicide.

Centering the treatment around you

Many find themselves troubled with addiction in an attempt to escape the way they are feeling but if your mind and body are both suffering, then a therapist that works with Lacanian analysis should be able to help you. Lacanian analysis was developed back in 1951 by the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan when he developed his ‘Return to Freud’ concept.

His focus is on the fact that the client should be at the centre of the treatment and not the counsellor. It can be referred to as ‘talking treatment’ and will take place during a private session between you and your psychoanalyst. Lacanian analysis also promotes the idea of counselling sessions being of variable lengths so that your time with your counsellor will only cease when you arrive at a point in time which coincides with the end of the words you wish to speak.

Dialogue is key

Lacanian analysis is very focused and concentrates intently on dialogue and talking and not silences. Because the sessions are offered to suit your needs and wants, you can keep them short or long, depending upon the demands of your lifestyle.
