Does it sound strange if I suggest studying Psychotherapy in Austria? Well, which could be better than the country where the Father of Psychology was born, raised and lived. For those of you who do not know who I am talking about, Sigmund Freud revolutionized the study of Psychology.
Sigmund Freud is famous for his controversial theory of the psychological development of humans and his understanding of the human mind. He compared the human mind to an iceberg, where our consciousness in only the tip and the rest is the subconscious – a collection of our memories and experiences. The subconscious gets projected in our dreams. He also gave the concept of Id, Ego, and Superego that transformed the discipline of Psychology.
