"Sometimes an office is just an office. But if you're a psychoanalyst, the presentation of your work space has to be impeccably thought out, designed to foster a sense of sanctuary and privacy."

"Since Sigmund Freud's Victorian consulting room, with its Oriental rug-draped couch, analysts have learned to use interior design as a therapeutic tool."

"In his ongoing series 'In the Shadow of Freud's couch,' Mark Gerald, who's both a photographer and a psychoanalyst, offers a look inside the offices of analysts all over the world.'One of the things I’m interested in with this project is showing the diversity within the field of psychoanalysis,' Gerald tells Co.Design."

"'Not every analyst is a bearded white man with a European accent in a Park Avenue office. Though there are certainly some that are like that.'"

Exemplars from a slideshow of the offices of 40 analysts from around the world appear above. The slideshow includes the names and locations of each of the analysts.

Shame that the maternal parent's office didn't make the cut... Of course, she hasn't had the advantage of metabolic processes for more than a year....
