The cost of a psychoanalytic psychotherapy treatment varies, depending on a number of factors.
Different psychoanalytic psychotherapists will charge different fees, which they may also adjust to an extent, depending on your income and what you can afford. How much you pay will also depend on how many times per week you see your therapist, on your circumstances, and on your therapist’s availability. This is something best discussed openly and honestly with your therapist during your initial meeting.
Time is an important factor in psychoanalytic psychotherapy treatment. It does not offer any quick fixes as it encourages change at a deep level through engaging with the unconscious mind. What it can offer is a depth of change and sustained recovery that other short-term treatments often cannot. Typically, people will see a psychoanalytic psychotherapist for several years, though the exact length will of course depend on the individual’s specific concerns and situation.
