Univ.-Prof.Dr.in Anna Buchheim
Psychoanalyst

“At the core of our self is the representation of the way we have been seen” (Fonagy, 2004) Object relations theories, mentalisation as well as attachment theories up to relational psychoanalysis form the basis of my methodological identity.

“From a neurobiological point of view, the brain builds itself up in constant alternation with the environment, remaining flexible throughout life and ready for further development. Where unresolved conflicts and traumas are reflected in the psychic structure is where psychoanalysis comes in, clarifying conflicts and substituting new emotional experiences for earlier traumatic ones.”


Dr.in Gabriele Worda
Psychoanalyst
Lecturer, Teaching Analyst, Supervisor (English, German)
Specialisation: Psychosomatics, Psychoanalysis and Music
CV Gabriele Worda (PDF)
worda.gabriele@aon.at

Information on the Elective Psychoanalysis

Cooperation Partner PSI

The psychotherapeutic specialisation with its methodological focus is carried out by the following cooperation partner:

Psychoanalytic Seminar Innsbruck (PSI) for the method of psychoanalysis

The PSI sees itself in the tradition of Sigmund Freud with the individual unconscious as the theoretical centre and the modern, scientific developments through the object relations theory, ego psychology and the interpersonal perspective.
PSI distances itself from dogmatic and esoteric positions. It understands psycho-analytic practice essentially as an analysis of relationships.
In addition to imparting theoretical and practical knowledge, the training is intended to lay the foundation for forming an individual, personal, psychoanalytic identity.
