Psychodynamic counselling works from an understanding that a person’s unconscious perceptions of ‘how to be’, and how to relate to others, are developed from early infancy, throughout childhood and continue throughout life. These unconscious perceptions and thoughts influence and affect a person’s current feelings, thoughts, behaviours and relationships. Psychodynamic counselling can help you understand and work through problems and difficulties through developing an increased awareness of how your inner emotional world can impact on day-to-day life. Psychodynamic counselling can help with issues and concerns arising from the past and those from the present, by helping you explore your motivations, relationships and everyday interactions, and it aims to support insight and increased understanding of your difficulties to enable you to begin changing patterns and to help you move forward.
Psychodynamic counselling places great value on the therapeutic relationship, and through this offers a safe, non-judgemental and empathic space in which your thoughts, feelings and perspectives can be heard, valued and understood.
