Example text

At our second meeting, she hesitated between the chair and the couch and then sat down. She thought I would expect her to use the couch; she needed to respond to others’ expectations because she was afraid of revealing her real self. She felt she had lost her spontaneity at university; now she could only find herself secondhand, through literature. I suggested that this loss had perhaps happened much earlier in childhood and her early years had not been as ideal as she supposed. Her response to this in the next session was to tell me about her separation from her mother from eighteen months–two years, which had not emerged in the initial semi-formal history-taking.

Khan felt this secret, which was re-enacted in the analytic setting, to have been an important potential space in which the patient had been able to keep alive some part of herself that she could later contact again, as Colin does in the secret garden. A patient of mine in analysis used to be an art student, but gave up her painting completely when she got married and had children. Her husband had left her, the children were leaving home, and she had been profoundly depressed. For some time, she never mentioned a portfolio of her old paintings and drawings which she had hidden away rather uncaringly in the garage.

Her response to this in the next session was to tell me about her separation from her mother from eighteen months–two years, which had not emerged in the initial semi-formal history-taking. Mother had been ill during her next pregnancy and she had been sent to stay with an aunt for six months. She often feels that this aunt was more of a real mother, so the separation from her when she returned home at age two was even more painful. Thereafter, as a child, she was extremely anxious about further separations and very clinging if taken to a party.
