“Some of the best lessons are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom of the future.” Dale Turner
Psychodynamic therapy is based on the view that many of our present difficulties are the result of unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving learned as a result of past experience. When our early encounters are loving and we feel accepted, we develop healthy attitudes about ourselves and others, but when they are difficult or traumatic our sense of self can become distorted, leading to all kinds of fears and worries.
Counselling offers a way to explore those areas of our lives which may be difficult and anxiety-provoking, often leading to recognition of qualities and potential we didn’t even know we had.
Areas in which psychodynamic counselling can be particularly effective include: anxiety, addiction, depression, stress, abuse, trauma, relationships, bereavement, identity and self-esteem.
