Who is it for?
How It Works?
Psychodynamic Therapy helps people to understand how past experiences and relationships (in particular those with their parents) influences their day to day thoughts, choices, feelings and behaviours. Distress is reduced by enabling people to disentangle themselves from unhelpful aspects of their past. Therapy tends to be open ended and carried out over the longer term (i.e. months and years).
A Recent Testimonial
Annabelle - Islington“I began having therapy because I had been struggling with anxiety over a number of years. It had got to the point where I was agoraphobic, tearful and fearful of many everyday situations. Walking down the road to the shops or going for a five minute drive filled me with dread. Eventually I reached the point where I knew I had to do something. Deciding to have therapy with Dr Gray is one of the most important decisions I have ever made. Her care, professionalism and insightfulness really have changed my life. I’d recommend therapy to anyone who feels they’re struggling – and the truth is we all do struggle in some way. I used to believe having therapy was a sign of weakness. Now I think it’s just sensible, like taking exercise or having your car serviced. It keeps things running smoothly so that when life gets tough you can cope and when life is good you can enjoy it fully”.
What Does the Research Say?
There is some evidence to support the effectiveness of Psychodynamic Therapy but it is limited compared to other types of therapy, such as the robust evidence base for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
