Psychoanalysis is a form of theapy that is more in-depth than individual therapy as it requires an individual to come multiple times per week. The patient may lie on the couch with the therapist sitting out of view. This therapy set-up is condusive to helping the patient focus their attention on the emotional experience that is occuring in the here and now moment of the relationship with their therapist. The idea is that what is happening between the therapist and the patient is an example of what transpires between the patient and others in their life. The patient and the therapist have the very unique opportunity to sort out the patterns of their interaction that are not helpful to their health and happiness. These patterns of relating are formed early in life but are carried on into adult relationships and interfere with ones ability to have the success in love and at work that is desired. One of the very important tools of psychoanalysis is the psychoanalysis's ability to work with dreams that are brought into the therapy session. Dreams are considered pictorical represetations of the persons inner world and reveal important ways they are dealing with their emotional life.
