Psychodynamic Psychotherapy offers a confidential space where individuals can think about and discuss their thoughts, emotions, relationships and events in their lives, whether past or present. It presupposes that whatever happens to us as we go through life, will have impacted on us, sometimes in ways that we are unaware.
It is impossible for any of us to escape challenging times in our lives and sometimes thoughts and feelings can be overwhelming. When this happens we can become depressed or anxious or feel generally very unhappy with our lives and in our relationships.
Children and young people may respond differently from adults. They may become sad or anxious but they may show it in many different ways, for example they may find it hard to learn, have tantrums, exhibit challenging behaviour or struggle with friendships.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with adults is usually a talking therapy. Adolescents too may like to talk but children will often communicate with the therapist through their play.
Sessions are usually once a week for 50 minutes on the same day at the same time. Work can be open ended so that the individual and the therapist together decide when it should come to an end. Sometimes a set number of sessions will be offered.
