Often the therapist has his own agenda and pressures the patient to “remember” what the therapist (without any evidence) has already concluded is the problem. If the patient can’t remember what the therapist wants him to, he is accused of suppressing the memory or of being in denial. Freud’s modus operandus continues to this day. Freud wrote:

“We must not believe what they [patients] say [when they deny having memories], we must always assume, and tell them, too, that they have kept something back…. We must insist on this, we must repeat the pressure and represent ourselves as infallible, till at last we are really told something…the pressure technique, in fact, never fails.”
