The Psychodynamic Approach
I usually see people once or twice a week for ongoing therapy, with each session lasting 50 minutes. The regularity of the sessions provides an opportunity to explore recurring patterns of behaviour and relationships which may also be repeated in the consulting room. I enable people to look at these patterns without fear, judgement, retaliation or rejection.
I work mainly with a psychodynamic approach, recognising that problems and distress in the present, may have originated in early life experiences and that understanding this is the first step towards achieving change in awareness, perception and relationships.
Psychodynamic therapy is particularly helpful to people who wish to understand themselves and their difficulties more deeply, rather than only seeking symptom control.
