About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Lacanian psychoanalysis and its applications

Lacanian psychoanalysis offers a unique perspective on understanding the human psyche. The approach, developed by Jacques Lacan, draws from various philosophical influences and has ignited discourse in humanities and political spheres. This therapeutic approach views mental health issues such as depression as deeply intertwined with fundamental philosophical attitudes toward reality and life. At It's Complicated, our team of experienced Lacanian analysts provides a space for individuals to explore their innermost thoughts and emotions freely. Through the practice of free association, clients are encouraged to speak without censorship, allowing unconscious material to surface. Our analysts ask probing questions to facilitate reflection and understanding, and provide interpretations to convey their understanding of the client's material.

 

How Lacanian psychoanalysis works

In Lacanian psychoanalysis, sessions involve open dialogue and exploration of unconscious processes. Clients may attend sessions from one to five times a week, depending on their agreement with the analyst. Sessions can take place face-to-face or with the client reclined on a couch, promoting a relaxed and introspective atmosphere. Through this process, individuals gain insight into the underlying psychological dynamics shaping their experiences and behaviours.

 

Is Lacanian psychoanalysis right for you?

Lacanian psychoanalysis offers a depth-oriented approach to self-exploration and understanding. If you're grappling with existential questions or seeking to unravel the complexities of your inner world, Lacanian psychoanalysis may provide valuable insights and avenues for growth. Reach out to an experienced Lacanian analyst from the It's Complicated community to begin your collaborative introspection.
