Have you found yourself not knowing how to navigate a situation and suffering because of that? Have you tried "everything," but are still feeling trapped and immersed in psych suffering, which can manifest itself as isolation, self-criticism, hopelessness, worry, fear, dissatisfaction, interpersonal conflicts, mood changes, dissociation from reality, a sense of being persecuted, and so on? Have you wondered whether some of the issues you have dealt with - for instance, being incapable of doing things or repeatedly making bad choices - might tell something about your subjective dilemmas? This is the moment to make analysis.
My practice is oriented by the psychoanalysis of Jacques Lacan, who took the steps of Freud. Speaking or playing in the case of children are not only ways of communicating but mostly ways of acting. You say much more than you think, for instance, through dreams and symptoms, and listening to it creates a type of knowledge that mobilizes affects and the body.
Throughout this process, you make things happen rather than keep waiting for life to move to accommodate your needs. That happens as you become oriented by your desire, which drives you into action and calls you to take responsibility for those actions. As a result, you will recover the freedom once stolen by the psychic suffering and find new ways of living
Você tem tido dificuldade com alguma situação e sofre com isso? Já tentou “tudo”, mas continua se sentindo sem saída e imerso em sofrimento psíquico, o qual pode se manifestar como isolamento, auto-crítica, desesperança, preocupação, medo, insatisfação, conflitos interpessoais, mudanças de humor, dissociação da realidade, sensação de perseguição, etc? Você tem se perguntado se algumas das dificuldades que você tem enfrentado - como, ser incapaz de agir ou repetidamente fazer escolhas erradas - podem dizer algo sobre seus dilemas subjetivos? Essa é a hora de fazer análise.
Minha prática clínica é orientada pela psicanálise de Jacques Lacan, que seguiu os passos de Freud. Falar e brincar no caso das crianças não são apenas modos de se comunicar, mas principalmente modos de agir. Você fala muito mais do que supõe, por exemplo, através de sonhos e sintomas, e escutar isso cria um tipo de saber que mobiliza os afetos e o corpo.
Neste processo, você passa a agir em vez de continuar esperando que as coisas mudem na direção desejada. Isso acontece porque você passa a se orientar pelo seu desejo, o qual te dirige a agir e te chama a assumir a responsabilidade por essas ações. Como resultado, você vai recuperar a liberdade roubada pelo sofrimento psíquico e criar novos modos de viver.
