WELL-BEING PSYCHOANALYSYS is a Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy Consultation in Madrid recommended for quality and location by Susana L. Ruiz.

Psychoanalysis is both a theory of the human mind and a therapeutic practice. It was founded by Sigmund Freud between 1885 and 1939 and continues to be developed by psychoanalysts all over the world.

According to American Psychological Association, psychoanalysis is a type of therapy that not only gives relief from problems, but also helps people know more about themselves, and make better choices in life.

Psychoanalysts work to help people get to the root of their problems by listening to them in new ways, and paying attention to peoples’ memories, fears, dreams, desires, and feelings about relationships, so they can understand how these events are important in their lives.

Psychoanalysts are trained to work closely with the client in gaining a deeper understanding about the client’s life, and to discover and create the possibility for more satisfying relationships, and to heal from the harm caused by past and present traumas.

This is because psychoanalysts have been through psychoanalysis themselves, and they know what it is like to work through emotions and things in life that are hard to face.

Every person and situation is different, and the therapy is tailored to meet the needs of the client.

It addresses life and biography issues, problems in relationships, sexuality, love, thoughts, conflicts, crisis, profession, personal development, change, dream analysis, childhood, parental figures, patterns…

Psychoanalysis serves people of all ages, cultures, races, genders and sexualities, and backgrounds.

Psychoanalysis observes how people think and feel in depth, duration, and detail in order to provide for long lasting change.

Technical procedures include working with dreams, slips of the tongue, fantasies, and other symbolic material, and paying attention to feelings, thoughts, and behaviors concerning the psychoanalyst and the psychoanalytic.

It is talking therapy based on Psychoanalysis theory and practice.
For it, it involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you to find ways to deal with the emotional issues you’re facing, or to understand why you are feeling a certain way.

Then, psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential, and impartial space in which to explore your feelings.

Therapist will encourage you to talk about your thoughts, feelings and emotions and will respectfully listen and support you without judgement or criticism.

At some point in our lives most of us will experience times when we’re overwhelmed or feel that we cannot cope.

If these feelings are left unchecked, they can grow and develop with the potential to spill out into other areas of our lives – our relationships, careers, studies and personal lives can be impacted to the extent that we feel unable to continue to live a happy life.

Finally, psychotherapy is a personal and private experience, designed to help you resolve whatever individual problems you are facing.
