Who is Psychodynamic Therapy for?
Psychodynamic therapy (also referred to as psychodynamic counselling) is a therapeutic treatment approach. The roots of psychodynamic therapy lie predominantly in Freud’s approach of psychoanalysis, however further development of the concept and application of psychodynamics can be credited to Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, Otto Rank and Melanie Klein.
Psychodynamic Therapy can help people with a number of emotional, relational and psychological problems including low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
