The Psychodynamic Approach

The psychodynamic approach aims to help us understand our behaviour, thoughts and feelings, in order to make links with earlier experiences, and understand how they may be influencing us now.

Working psychodynamically means becoming aware of how our past affects the present to better understand how our unconscious motivations may be impacting on how we relate to ourselves and others around us. We believe this creates the possibility for change and enables us to move towards a more comfortable way of being. Developing greater self awareness and insight allows us to make more informed choices and fulfil our potential.

The way in which the therapeutic relationship develops can inform how patterns from earliest relationships can shape us and re-emerge in the present. This can be a valuable source of understanding other relationships in your life and help you gain greater acceptance.
