Psychoanalysis is not a psychological ‘education’; it does not offer self-improvement techniques or advice. It's a way to meet the days and the nights of your soul, repressed desires, fears, weaknesses but own strength as well.
In spite of the fact it's not just a therapy, but first of all an analysis, it could have a long lasting side effect. A human being gets ready to live an authentic life, releases mental pain, gets back the ability to work and to love.
