Talk and Relief

Reference: Wikipedia – Psychoanalysis

“Freudian psychoanalysis refers to a specific type of treatment in which the “analysand” (analytic patient) verbalizes thoughts, including free associations, fantasies, and dreams, from which the analyst induces the unconscious conflicts causing the patient’s symptoms and character problems, and interprets them for the patient to create insight for resolution of the problems.”

From my experience, it is not necessary for a person to verbalize his or her thoughts, and invite someone else to analyze them for him or her, in order to obtain relief.

A person knows his or her own self better than anybody else ever could. All the answers one would ever need are available to the person from within himself or herself. One only needs to wade through one’s confusions to finally spot those answers.

So, no analysis is needed, nor any advice. What may be needed is guidance on how to go about looking, and some friendly encouragement to keep on looking untill the answers are found. Neither guidance nor encouragement lead to violation of a person’s privacy.

One does not have to verbalize one’s intimate thoughts to obtain relief.
