What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Counselling?

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a non-judgmental and collaborative process. No two encounters are the same and there is no simple definition or right answer. I would hope to help you, in a non-judgmental way, to think and talk about yourself and your current and past relationships and to realize the possibility of increased perspective and change. Talking about whatever is on your mind whether it is work, relationships, family, hopes and fears or anything you wish and by becoming more aware of links between past and present can enable you to make more informed choices about your life.

Behavioral therapies like CPD may help you deal with, say, a fear of being out of the house by helping you derive conscious ways of dealing with your panic such as mindfulness or exposure so a more rational part of you can take the wheel. Psychotherapy tends to look at the meaning of boundaries in the relationships you may be experiencing or avoiding; the sense of entrapment, over-possessiveness or a fear of being unable to keep a sense of self when others are around. Where a behavioral approach to chronic lack of motivation might look at ways to provide structure and goals as a means of getting back control.

A psychotherapeutic approach might explore a tendency to disown or hold back the aggression necessary to compete and achieve, perhaps because this may be seen to harm others. Both approaches have their merits and can suit different people at different times. Certainly my approach to psychotherapy does not ignore the need to function effectively in the everyday world.

The work can be challenging and may, at times, involve facing difficult feelings, regrets and painful memories but over time I believe there is a real possibility of self-understanding, change and the realizing of inner potential.
