What is Psychodynamic Therapy
Psychodynamic counselling is a therapeutic approach giving exploration to your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment, without judgement and with honesty. It offers an opportunity to explore yourself to look within and understand those thoughts that float in and out of your mind which can bring forth a mixture of emotions, that can at times be very hard to understand or control.
It is a journey that offers insight and understanding working towards an awareness of the self. It gives the opportunity to discover inbuilt defence mechanisms that perhaps no longer serve the person you have become as a result of the traumas we all experience in life.
We can become stuck in destructive patterns of thoughts and behavior, unconsciously acting these out. These behaviors can create difficulties in our relationships and with the people around us. This can impact greatly upon our lives, sometimes in a most obstructive fashion.
Psychodynamic therapy works with the unconscious, bringing it to the conscious, creating an awareness of thought. It helps you to see things from a different perspective giving insight to the thoughts and feelings you may be struggling to understand.
Counselling can be a quiet, safe space to breathe and think about your life. Who you are, where you are going and what you wish to gain. It can be a space to grieve the losses you have experienced in your life and the changes that happen throughout your life.
