WHAT IS PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY?

  • Psychodynamic therapy has its roots in psychoanalysis but is a briefer form.
  • It stresses the importance of the unconscious and past experience in shaping current behaviour.
  • It holds the belief that our sense of self/personality is developed from our early experience of relationships, it is from those relationships that we learn who we are in relation to others.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • If our early experiences of relationships are difficult, we can develop a distorted view of ourselves which can affect us in adulthood.
  • The relationship with your therapist is important and will help you identify how the difficulties or ways of behaving in the therapeutic relationship mirror how you may relate to others outside of the counselling room currently and in the past.
  • Helps you understand how underlying emotional conflicts impact on you and your relationships with friends, family, partners and work colleagues.
  • Will help you become more self-reflective, with a forward-looking approach that acknowledges the influence of the past, with an emphasis of making change in the future.
