What is Psychodynamic Counselling/Psychotherapy?

There may be times when something is troubling you, but you are unable to think or work things through on your own. Psychodynamic Counselling/Psychotherapy provides the chance to speak openly and confidentially about whatever is on your mind to a Counsellor, someone who is trained to listen in a way that can help you to recognise the source of the present difficulties, which may be rooted in the past. This process offers the possibility of lasting change. (Read more on Psychodynamic Counselling/Psychotherapy on page 3).

Who is it for?

A Counsellor can assist anyone who is experiencing emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, psychosomatic illness, suicidal feelings, inability to get over a loss, difficulties with relationships, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or anyone who finds themselves stuck in an unwanted repeated patterns of behavior, may be able to benefit from Psychodynamic Counselling or Psychotherapy. (See further list of emotional issues page 3).

What happens?

Psychodynamic Counselling/Psychotherapy is based on listening, reflection and interpretation of dreams, and helps to make links between earlier experiences – often outside our awareness – and present difficulties, which can be better understood and worked through in a safe, reliable and confidential environment. The sessions are regular and sufficiently frequent to provide support and continuity, and to enable working in depth, which makes lasting change possible.

What next?

If you would like to discuss whether Psychodynamic Counselling/Psychotherapy is appropriate for you, you can make an appointment for an initial consultation. This gives both of us the opportunity to meet to discuss your issues and find out if there is a basis for us to continue working together.

The initial consultation will last between 50 and 75 minutes.
Follow-up sessions last for fifty minutes once weekly, or more often if this would be helpful. All information disclosed is treated as confidential.
