In brief, psychoanalysis or a deep human connection creates an opportunity to transform deeply rooted psychological pain, and to develop a richer life. 

Patient and analyst relive/live lost or hidden feelings in a new way. They may have been too big to metabolize. One can use self-criticism or other harmful methods to cope with difficult feelings.

When an engaging and enlivening connection develops, one gains access and ability to tolerate feelings. This allows for relief from depression/anxiety or living life by the dictates of others.

Without freedom to choose, one may feel lonely, trapped, or disconnected from others, work, or life itself. People struggle feeling partially dead or stuck in painful patterns.

Meeting more often has many benefits: including less time for feelings to be dismissed, more time to fully open up the intricacies of one's issues, and for me to be more involved in your world. It also allows for more support while opening up painful situations.
