WHAT IS PSYCHODYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY?

The therapy I practice is termed "psychodynamic psychotherapy". It is primarily based on the idea that past experiences have an impact on the individuals experiences and feelings in the present.

During a therapy session, particular attention is given over to exploring unconscious patterns that may have evolved since childhood. Memories, dreams, and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current relationships and the issues that are affecting your current life.

The process of change occurs as you become increasingly aware of your unconscious patterns of behaviour, your use of defence mechanisms, instincts, and those inherited life rules. In time, this awareness allows you to gain insight into these patterns, to take control, and to make appropriate changes in your life.

Whilst it is not the role of the psychotherapist to give advice, the opportunity is certainly available to discuss the choices and options that you face in an empathic, confidential, safe, and non-judgemental environment.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Depending on your needs, I offer both short term and open ended work which we will discuss at the initial consultation.

Sessions are 50 minutes long. We would arrange to meet once a week and at the same time each week. You do not need to be referred by your GP to start your therapy.
