Finding Therapy

Finding a psychotherapist or a psychoanalyst can be both challenging and rewarding.

When you are considering treatment, it is important to know what kind of therapy you are seeking. If you are interested in a highly exploratory approach, you may want to consider psychoanalysis, which is a more intensive and time committed form of therapy. Psychodynamic or psychoanalytic psychotherapy is less intensive, but does require a close working relationship in which emotions, thinking patterns and behaviors are closely examined with your therapist.

Both forms of psychoanalytic therapy will require an initial assessment, which is an opportunity to discuss with your therapist or analyst what you would like help with, and how that might be addressed through therapy or analysis. This is process in which both you and the therapist can assess whether the therapeutic relationship feels like a good fit, and better understand the benefits of engaging in a long term therapy.

The Toronto Psychoanalytic Society and Institute have a Referral Service which can help you in determining whether psychoanalytic treatment may be of benefit to you, and whether psychotherapy or psychoanalysis would be most appropriate. They will also be able to provide you with a list of therapists or analysts who currently have openings in their practice.

For further information about our Referral Service for psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, call the tps&i at 416-922-7770 or fax us at 416-922-9988.
