What happens in our early years and those developmental relationships can be a blueprint or framework for the rest of our lives. It’s a dynamic that we may take into other relationships and it is often unconscious as it is simply what we have always known.
In psychodynamic therapy, we work together to better understand your unique developmental framework, often getting to the root cause of negative feelings, relationships and behaviour in the present. These issues in the present could present as depression, anxiety, intrusive and/or suicidal thoughts, it could be difficulty regulating your emotions, eating disorders, addictions, repetitive behaviours, or general problems relating to others whether that is family, friends or relationships.
Whatever your difficulties are in the present, we would work together in a completely confidential, trusting and non-judgemental therapeutic environment where you can talk about anything. It is a unique experience and often it can be the first time that you have ever spoken about your problems without worrying what someone else will think of you, where you can begin to make sense of yourself and start to understand what is causing your emotional and/or physical distress. This type of therapy can lead to lasting, positive change in all areas of life as you become more confident in yourself and difficult feelings and behaviours reduce or disappear.
