Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in an individual’s current behaviour. The goals of psychodynamic therapy include the development of client self-awareness and an understanding of the influence the past has, on current behavior. A psychodynamic approach enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships.

Psychodynamic Therapy

The basic theme of psychodynamic therapy is the belief in the existence of the unconscious mind and the psychological forces which shape our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. They believe that our external behavior is merely the result of the interplay of these psychological forces and the manifestation of our inner needs. Stated differently, the unconscious mind has great influence over the conscious mind and the past continues to impact the present.

Psychodynamic therapy aims to help you become aware and understand the deeper meanings of your behavior, thoughts and feelings, as well as your needs. Through knowing and understanding the reasons for feeling, thinking, and behaving in a certain way, you gain insight and become aware of and learn how to see more positive approaches.

Psychodynamic therapy is a useful form of therapy. It especially suits those who have the capacity for reflection and introspection, and who wants to understand themselves at a deeper level.
