PsychoanalystA psychoanalyst is a mental health professional who has completed specialized training in psychoanalytic theory and therapy. Psychoanalytic theory was developed by Sigmund Freud and is based on the idea that our unconscious thoughts and emotions influence our behavior and experiences.

Psychoanalysts work with clients to explore their unconscious motivations, emotions, and experiences through a process of free association, dream analysis, and interpretation. This process is designed to help clients gain insight into their unconscious and address unresolved issues from their past.

To become a psychoanalyst, one typically completes an advanced degree in a mental health field such as psychology, social work, or psychiatry, and then pursues additional training in psychoanalytic theory and therapy. Psychoanalytic training programs typically involve personal psychoanalysis, didactic coursework, and supervised clinical practice.

Psychoanalysts can work in a variety of settings, including private practice, clinics, and hospitals. They often work with individuals who are experiencing emotional difficulties, including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and trauma. While psychoanalysis can be a lengthy and intensive form of therapy, it has been shown to be effective in treating a range of mental health issues.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
