Some analysts like myself believe in "the corrective emotional experience", get a tiny piece of nurturance from one's therapist that should have been given from one's parents. As a result, emotional needs get met enough that one can move on and grow.
People are depressed because they don't do what they like to do. Surprised? When I ask patients what they like to do, only 10-20% can tell me only three things. And even this goes down when I press patients on how often they do these things. Remarkable but true.
My specialty with both individuals and couples is teaching the ironic analytic concept of 'Tolerating Intimacy' This is the result of our family of origin or our 'love object' parents. How did they each communicate love or not to you and how did they communicate love or not to each other. This emotional triangle becomes one's Unconscious template for love we seek out and try to replicate, even if it means hurt and pain.
