The Girl on the Train is a psycho thriller novel written by Paula Hawkins, a British author. It has a complicated character, Rachel who refers as “the girl on the train”. Rachel always feels afraid, panic, worry, and guilty. To overcome and feel secure toward those feelings, she becomes a drunken woman. She is an interesting character because a drunken people usually does not care the condition around him/her. She is different, she still has social sensitivity. This research aims to describe type and factor of anxiety that is used by Rachel, and to explain the defense mechanism as a strategy to reduce her anxiety. This research applies Psychoanalysis theory by Sigmund Freud to analyze the anxiety and defense mechanism that appear in Rachel’s character. The researcher uses a qualitative method of study. The researcher explains the data by categorizing the data, making some list about the anxious event, looking for the defense mechanism, and analyzing the data. From the analysis, it can be concluded that Rachel suffers all the type of anxiety; neurotic, moral, and realistic anxiety. Finally, to cope Rachel’s anxious feeling, Rachel uses six defense mechanisms. They are repression, displacement, fixation, projection, rationalization, and denial.
