This form of therapy encourages the exploration of your conscious and unconscious mind. If you find yourself caught up in repeated patterns of relating to others, when these patterns cause emotional turmoil, psychodynamic therapy can help you make significant changes in how you see and interact with the world.
Often the difficulties that you encounter in your adult life can originate from your childhood. As children we do not possess the maturity for making effective choices nor the independence to do so. As such the methods of adapting that one develops in childhood may no longer be effective for adapting to the world as an adult.
Through guidance from your therapist, you become aware of your present ways of coping that are ineffective in the here and now. You can learn that you now have a range of new options for solving problems, and for your life in general that are based on your maturity and independence.
