What is the goal of psychoanalysis?

ANSWER

The goal of treatment is to make you aware of unconscious things so you can recognize patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that are no longer related to or useful for what's going on in your life now. Psychoanalysis is usually best for people who are struggling with problems around life satisfaction, relationships, and conflicts in pursuing personal or professional goals.
