Psychodynamic therapy shares core principles of psychoanalysis but is less intensive and focuses mainly on immediate problems and solutions. In the same way as psychoanalysis it can provide benefits – helping people with a range of psychological disorders to make marked adaptations in their decision making and interpersonal relationships.
Psychodynamic therapy aims to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness – helping us identify, experience and understand deeply hidden feelings in order to assist with resolving them. Psychodynamic therapists use similar techniques to psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy such as free association, therapeutic transference and interpretation.
