There are many issues psychotherapy can help with and above are just a few the reasons many clients seek it as one of the longer term talking therapies available to them.

 

Psychotherapy can..

 

 

  • Address problems that have built up over a long period of time.

 

  • Help you understand your feelings, thoughts and actions more clearly. 

 

  • Identifies emotional issues and the background to problems and difficulties.

 

  • Be a long-term therapy

 

 

Psychoanalytical and psychodynamic therapies are based on our unconscious thoughts and perceptions from our childhood experiences, and how these affect current behaviour and thoughts. There are a range of therapeutic methods and options that your counsellor may use as part of their treatment plan such as:

­

  • Jungian therapy: Jungian psychotherapy is a specific branch of psychodynamic therapy that works from the theories of Carl Jung, considered to be one of the forefathers of psychology.

 

  • Psychoanalysis: Psychoanalysis was developed by Sigmund Freud and focuses on an individual's unconscious, deep-rooted thoughts that often stem from childhood. Through free associations, dreams or fantasies, clients can learn how to interpret deeply buried memories or experiences that may be causing them distress.

 

  • Psychoanalytic therapy: Based on psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic therapy also focuses on how an individual's unconscious thoughts are influencing them. However, psychoanalytic therapy is usually less intensive than psychoanalysis.

 

  • Psychodynamic therapy: Psychodynamic therapy evolved from psychoanalytic therapy and seeks to discover how unconscious thoughts affect current behaviour. Psychodynamic therapy usually focuses on more immediate problems and attempts to provide a quicker solution.
