Perhaps the use of the term "determinism" is not very precise. However, any model of the "subject" is necessarily deterministic. Recall Althusser's characterization of the transformation from the individual to the subject. To posit the individual as subject, is to designate she/he as a site of a multiplicity of often competing or contradictory forces. The question, of course, is what degree of reflection does the model allow? Thus we can redirect your question concerning psychoanalysis to one of "repression management."
