Psychodynamic Counselling


For more information, please telephone us on Freephone 0330 050 1620

Past and present relationships are talked about as well as the relationship with the counsellor. The aim is for the clients to have space to understand more about themselves in the present. Psychodynamic counselling is based on a model that uses psychoanalytic concepts to explain human growth and development, and the nature of psychological problems. It uses the therapeutic relationship to gain insight into unconscious relationship patterns that evolved since childhood. Memories and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current concerns. The process of change occurs as clients become more aware of the power of the unconscious (including defense mechanisms, instincts and rules for life) to influence behaviour, and hence are more able to control their actions and responses.
