Psychodynamic psychotherapy draws on the understanding that our present emotional difficulties often stem from patterns established in our past. When we repeat these patterns without understanding where they’ve come from, we can feel stuck, out of control, empty or disconnected from our real selves.
By talking together to explore your thoughts and feelings, we can shed light on these patterns, enabling you to see present emotional difficulties in a new way. People have often described this as seeing what was already there, but through a different lens.
As this new understanding develops, you can be relieved of the uncomfortable feelings and symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Over time, this insight enables you to do things differently and to achieve real, lasting change.
