Our practitioners offer psychodynamic, humanistic and integrative psychotherapy to adult individuals as well couples' therapy for people who want to to understand or work on their relationships together.
Some people have a clear sense of the kind of therapy that would be right for them, but many people don't and trying to work it out can be mystifying. Significant research suggests that it is not the type of therapy which most directly influences the outcome of the work, but the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. For this reason it is really worth thinking about the therapist who you feel would be the best fit for you.
You are welcome to contact the practice and discuss the options over the phone or by email, or arrange a consultation with one of our practitioners who can decide with you what's likely to suit you best.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy works with the premise that our early experiences affect us later in life. While we may not be able to recall much of our early experiences, they often resurface in our later relationships, and in our sense of ourselves and the people around us. This type of therapy is useful for people who want to understand their difficulties as well as learn how to manage them. It is also often useful for people who have had some therapy in the past, but feel that they remain effected by underlying difficulties.
The therapeutic process works as a conversation between the patient and therapist, taking place at the same time each week and without a set agenda. Often, the difficulties people experience in their lives come to light within the therapy itself, providing an opportunity to understand them differently.
This process can facilitate deep and long-lasting changes in how you understand yourself and how you relate to others, helping to develop the capacity for more fulfilling relationships, a greater sense of freedom in the choices you make, and a more robust sense of identity.
Therapists offering this are Nick Jones and Diana Constantinou.
