Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic psychotherapy is one of the psychotherapeutic approaches based on the theory and technique of psychoanalysis, which aims to treat emotional problems and various mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and eating disorders, etc. According to psychoanalytic theory; memories, early childhood experiences, emotional conflicts and repressed impulses are present in our psyche. Being active in the unconscious, they exert great power over us by influencing our personality, self-esteem, interactions with others and emotional state. Therefore, the treatment is based on the theory that our present is shaped by our past.
This type of psychotherapy addresses underlying issues and causes, often related to your past, that may be troubling you or affecting your relationships with others. In your sessions you will be encouraged to speak freely and look deeper into your problems and concerns.
