3. A case of obsessional neurosis In early autumn 1907, a youngish man of university education, Mr R, made an appointment to see Freud at Berggasse 19, Vienna. This was Freud’s home and office for most of his working life, the hub within which analysis developed. R was plagued with worries about the consequences of his thoughts and wishes, which he found hard to distinguish from deeds. He believed that his mind was sometimes completely transparent; this was apparent to him in youth, when he suspected that his parents could see right into him. R told Freud about the endlessly

5. Analytic space, time, and technique A single consultation or few meetings can be valuable, and might even shed helpful new light on a patient’s Oedipal or other neurotic problems, but the talking cure typically involves treatment over months, or more likely years, and does not promise change through an epiphany. A patient may have spent years building defences against areas of anxiety and psychic pain; getting past them is not the work of a day. To facilitate analysis, Freud proposed a fixed duration (the session) and a reliable, regular location (the consulting room) ensuring privacy. This chapter explores features

4. Oedipus Ever since Freud formulated the Oedipus complex, wrote the analyst Hanna Segal, ‘it has been recognized as the central conflict in the human psyche—the central cluster of conflicting impulses, phantasies, anxieties and defences. It has therefore become the centre of psychoanalytic work.’ It is indeed a pivotal idea in psychoanalysis, and one that has also been the source of withering criticisms.

1. Introduction Two people, a patient and psychoanalyst, meet at set times each week; the patient is free to say whatever comes to mind. Sometimes the psychoanalyst might act as catalyst, speaking in order to help the patient who is silent and blocked; or might also clarify, underline something striking, and then interpret what has been said or done. Interpretation here means to draw out latent meanings. The patient perhaps agrees or disagrees, moves off at a tangent, adding detail, feeling moved and well understood, or positively annoyed. He or she makes use of an interpretation or not. They talk
