PSYCHODYNAMIC

In Psychodynamic Counselling the counsellor and client form a working relationship which enables the exploration of the client's relational patterns.  As in other orientations a psychodynamic counsellor puts great emphasis on forming a good therapeutic relationship, based on acceptance, empathy and honesty, thus providing a trusting base from which the client can safely explore areas of personal difficulty.

Exploration of issues, memories and everyday experiences occurs through active listening and reflecting back, giving the client an opportunity to experience their own thought processes and the possibility of sharing these, often for the first time, with their therapist.

According to the psychodynamic approach our behaviour, coping mechanisms and ways of relating to people are based on earlier life events which are often held in the unconscious.  With increasing insight and awareness and with the help of the therapist, the client becomes conscious of these old patterns and can then choose whether to keep or let go of them.
