Is Psychotherapy right for you? It is, if you:
In our Center we practice psychodynamic therapy, based on Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis – especially on his concept of human life as being ruled by the wide range of ongoing unconscious processes. Psychodynamic therapy enriched this concept with recent neuroscientifical discoveries and findings on how the human brain operates.
The main therapeutic tool in psychodynamic therapy is the relationship between the patient and his or her therapist. In this relationship, patients unconsciously enact the patterns from their previous and present relationships and activate a series of specific defense mechanisms and behaviors.
The efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy has been proven in various empirical studies (i.e. Gallagher-Thompson i Steffen 1992; Leichsenring 2005; Kellett, Clarke i Matthews 2007; Wöller 2008, Shedler, 2010). It is important to acknowledge that this form of therapy proved to be not only effective, but also its results endured longer than in case of other methods of psychotherapy.
