ABOUT PSYCHOANALYSIS

Psychoanalysis, the original talking cure, was invented by Sigmund Freud, Josef Breuer -a GP- and their patients. From these early days in Austria it expanded internationally until the analyst and his couch became the ultimate Hollywood cliche.

Psychoanalysis developed into different schools, but common to all is a dedication to authentic speaking and careful listening. Healing is promoted through self-knowledge, gained by uncovering unconscious scripts and desires that determine expectations, behaviours, thinking, and phantasy.

Because psychoanalysis is labour intensive and demands an extremely long period of training, it is rarely available for adults on the NHS.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century however, psychoanalysis remains a versatile and sophisticated treatment. It increasingly attracts people seeking an alternative to the generalized, narrowly structured, and highly regulated therapies promoted by health officials and governments throughout Europe.

Psychoanalysis can be brief -Gustav Mahler's treatment by Freud took place during an afternoon's stroll. It also can be long-term and intensive with several sessions a week over several years. In the middle are the vast majority of people who attend Rodney Street Psychoanalytic Practice for one session a week during twelve to eighteen months of treatment.

the hands of the living god

kali by tatiana de stempel
FEMININE SEXUALITY: STRUCTURES, JOUISSANCE, AND MASQUERADES
A much neglected figure in psychoanalytic discussion is Marion Milner 1900-1998.

She pioneered journal keeping as a form of therapy. Under the pseudonym of Joanna Field she published A Life of One's Own followed by An Experiement in Leisure and Eternity's Sunrise: A Way of Keeping a Diary. These writings attracted great interest from literary figures like W H Auden and Stephen Spender.
Milner was passionate about art and became an enthusiastic painter. In her own therapy and psychotherapeutic work she made use of painting and doodling. This resulted in On Not Being Able To Paint.
For sometime Milner was also fascinated by Jung and "bisexuality", which perhaps now would be better termed psychological androgyny.
Milner started psychoanalytic training in 1940. The Hands of the Living God is an account of her work with a psychotic analysand. As well as narrating the process of her patient, Milner tells how this psychoanalytical work gave valuable insights into the nature of her own desires
