Psychodynamic Therapy

What is Psychodynamic Therapy?

Counseling aims to analyze and improve their current life problems through deep exploration and analysis of earlier experiences. Psychodynamic therapy is characterized by self-reflection, examination of the origins of emotions and interactional patterns, and the use of the relationship between therapist and client as a window into unhealthy relationship dynamics in the client’s life.

How does Psychodynamic Therapy help people?

Scientific studies have shown substantial treatment benefits with psychodynamic therapy. Clients are encouraged to speak freely, bring vulnerable feelings to conscious awareness, and understand how repressed emotions from the past affect current decision-making. Clients may express and reconcile contradictory feelings and learn how they avoid distress and develop defense mechanisms to cope.
