main parts:

a) The conscious mind: includes everything that we are aware of. This
is the aspect of our mental processing that we can think and talk
about rationally. A part of this includes our memory, which is not
always part of consciousness but can be back easily at any time
and brought into our awareness.
b) The unconscious mind: It is feelings, thoughts, urges, and
memories that outside of our conscious awareness. Most of the
contents of the unconscious are unacceptable or unpleasant, such
as feelings of pain, anxiety, or conflict. According to Freud, the
unconscious continues to influence our behavior and experience,
even though we are unaware of these underlying influences.
