Analytical individual therapy

There are moments in life when the personal situation seems so difficult that you think you can not go on alone. There are situations that push so much to the limit that it helps if you can communicate. Analytical individual therapy is a way to gain hope, to think freely again, to act more freely and to cope with painful experiences. Psychoanalytic individual therapy is the treading of a new path, first in the shelter of the relationship with a therapist. In the intensive, supported by the therapist work over a year or more old wounds can also be visited and closed if possible. Far beyond daily crises, a structural reorientation of one’s own experience of being in the world can be sought. The point of departure for the possibility of profound, personality-structural changes is the relationship with the therapist. In it, the history of relationships and suffering is repeated, but it is also possible to find, test and consolidate new relationships. It is therefore important that the patient and the therapist are compatible. You should not do therapy with a therapist who is spontaneous and completely unsympathetic. To clarify this, there are at least 4 probation sessions prior to each therapy. Analytical individual therapy can, as already developed by Freud on the couch, take place in the opposite direction, but in some patients walk. While at the beginning of the development of analytic psychotherapy (psychoanalysis), the therapist tried to behave neutrally, like a mirror, today we know that change is only effected in the here and now of the relationship between patient and therapist and therapist and patient. Depending on the extent of the personality disorder, a competent therapist will thus also be able to be available to the patient as a real person, and possibly for a certain period of time to stand by him as a support and protection. The aim is to build up a working alliance, a trusting relationship, which makes it possible to view the experienced and often suffered life history, to develop a sense of how far the patient still lives under the influence or even the power of past relationships, to help him delineate himself and to be able to live his life in the here and now, freed from the shackles of his past. To find out who I really am and what I want to be, are often important components of a successful analytic psychotherapy.

However, in addition to theoretical knowledge and techniques, the strongest power of therapeutic work lies in the power that comes from the relationship with the therapist. Establishing an intensive therapeutic relationship, ie a powerful “working alliance” in the service of coping with experienced crises, is the first milestone of a successful analytical psychotherapy. A relation to the analyst that is unencumbered by past life and protected by the therapeutic framework offers possibilities that the patient or patient can constructively use for themselves. At the same time, however, it is also necessary to clarify during the probationary sessions and to continuously check in the course of the therapeutic process whether the setting of the analytical individual therapy is the appropriate procedure for this particular human being, or whether an analytical group therapy, or a combination of both methods is not more helpful for him would be and have more chance of success. Therapy is there for the patient, not the patient for the therapy.

The timeframe of analytical psychotherapy ranges from 25 to 300 sessions when financed by the statutory health insurance funds.
