Psychodynamic therapy is one of the best known treatments in the contemporary therapies. It is based on psychoanalytical theory and traces the deeply embedded unconscious aspects of your thoughts and emotions. These may relate to your childhood experiences or may be triggered by current life stressors.
Psychodynamic therapy works on the content of what you bring to discuss and also on what takes places between the therapist and client in the therapeutic relationship. Much can be seen by how you interact with your therapist, sometimes without having to discuss your early life, if this is difficult to do, or even remember.
You will be invited to talk about the important people in your life. The way you do this will allow insight into your unconscious patterns in life which have resulted in your current difficulties.
