Types of Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, uses the principles of psychoanalysis. The focus is on how unconscious processes manifest in a person’s behavior. Clients learn how to change their behavior through an in-depth exploration of previous experiences. Psychodynamic therapy works in individual and group settings. People experiencing depression, addiction, social anxiety disorder, and eating disorders may find psychodynamic therapy useful. Depending on the client’s situation’s complexity, psychodynamic therapy can be a short-term or long-term process that ranges from 25 sessions to two or more years of therapy.
