This article is based on Bowlby's attachment theory. Following Bowlby, therapy is viewed as a secure base from which to explore. The final achievement of independence can be encouraged by self-analysis. A review of the literature on self-analysis is focused on Freud, Horney, and Fromm. Self-analysis can be the primary aim from the start, or it can be the outcome of a training or a therapeutic analysis. An example taken from therapeutic analysis is given. In the discussion, the various types of attachment are reviewed. Therapy is viewed as leading from insecure to secure attachment, and finally to autonomy.
