What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?
There are many different types of psychotherapy. They are all ways of helping people with distressing emotional problems.
All treatments are based on talking to a therapist. The psychodynamic approach stresses the importance of the unconscious mind and that of past experience in determining current behaviour. The client is encouraged to talk about relationships with parents and other significant people in their lives.
The therapist explores the perceptions, thoughts and feelings attached to these relationships and to the outworking of these in the therapist/client relationship. (this is known as the dynamics in the relationship which manifests itself as transference, projection and projective identification).
50 minute sessions are arranged weekly or twice weekly at a mutually agreed time.
Daytime and evening appointments are available.
The first session helps to determine whether psychotherapy is an appropriate way forward for the client at this time.
Supervision for Practitioners and Trainees.
Supervision is for counsellors, trainee counsellors, psychotherapists, supervisors of counsellors and clinical psychologists.
Supervision takes place either fortnightly or monthly in groups or individually.
The purpose of supervision is to assist the practitioner to learn from his or her own experience and progress in expertise, as well as to ensure good service to the client.
Telephone supervision is available by arrangement.
Practising members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy are bound to have supervision for at least 1.5 hours a month. Students and trainees must have it at a rate of one hour for every eight hours of client contact.
