Unravel and understand deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them.
Psychoanalytical and psychodynamic therapies explore unconscious thoughts and perceptions developed throughout your childhood, and how this may affect your current behaviour and thoughts.
Your counsellor will help you to understand and resolve issues from your past. Rather than concentrating on a person’s difficulties, these therapies focus on the individual’s personality, exploring the reasons behind specific characteristics and recurring difficulties. Therapists will also support you in making long-lasting, positive changes.
Types of behavioural therapies
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 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.
