Therapy: Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Psychodynamic therapy can help people improve their quality of life by helping them gain a better and deeper understanding of the way they think and feel, with a particular focus on factors that we are not aware of that may be affecting our behaviour and contributing to our distress (unconscious motivations).

Psychodynamic therapy evolved from psychoanalytic therapy and theories usually focuses on more immediate problems and attempts to provide a quicker solution.

Psychodynamic therapy strives to help people understand the sometimes unknown or unconscious motivations behind difficult feelings and behaviours. Having insight can lead to alleviation of distress as well as enable people to make more constructive choices. In psychodynamic therapy the focus is on your understanding and processing of your feelings as well as on making connection between your past experiences and understanding how they impact on your current life.

The goal is to help you recognise self-defeating and problematic patterns and explore new, constructive ways of being in the world and relating to yourself and others.
