Psychodynamic Counselling Therapy: What is it?

Psychodynamic Counselling Therapy

The origin of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy can be traced to Freud’s work and through Psychoanalysis and many see little difference between the Psychodynamic models and Classical Psychoanalysis in terms of techniques, and particularly with regard to the Analytic Psychotherapy model. What seems to be an evident difference between the two systems is perhaps the reduced number of sessions, generally one or two per week for psychotherapy while in Classical Analysis the expectation remain for a minimum of tree session weekly, but more commonly four to five session per week. In both systems however the shared theory, history, tradition, subjectivity and techniques continuously interweave.

When we start paying attention to our inner experience, we rapidly discover that there are certain thoughts and feelings and situations that the mind seems to want to hold on to.
