The Psychodynamic approach enquires into the mind of the individual, to see how past life experiences have been interpreted and how they subsequently influence present life.
Looking back to the individual’s childhood gives the therapist clues to what experiences may have affected the child – and are now affecting the adult. At no time is the therapist seeking to blame anyone for the past. Instead they are helping the individual to understand how the child might have seen the world, and providing an opportunity to make different decisions about it as an adult.
How does this type of therapy help?
Psychodynamic therapy provides an opportunity for the individual to really understand themselves, particularly in relation to others.
Sessions normally take place weekly and can be a long term commitment. Psychotherapy can also be integrated into short and medium term work if the therapist believes it may be helpful.
