Psychodynamic therapy is a form of talk therapy that is based on the theories and principles of psychoanalysis. It is one of the oldest forms of modern talk therapy, and it is still widely used today.

The central premise of psychodynamic therapy is that our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are influenced by unconscious psychological processes. These processes are often rooted in early experiences and relationships, and they can lead to maladaptive patterns of thought and behavior that can affect our mental health and wellbeing.

In psychodynamic therapy, the therapist works with the patient to explore their unconscious processes and patterns of thought and behavior. The therapist helps the patient to gain insight into their unconscious conflicts and to develop new ways of thinking and behaving that are more adaptive and beneficial.

Psychodynamic therapy can be used to treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and trauma-related disorders. It is often a long-term treatment, and it may involve multiple sessions per week over the course of several years.

During psychodynamic therapy, the therapist creates a safe and supportive environment in which the patient can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. The therapist may use a variety of techniques, including free association, dream analysis, and transference interpretation, to help the patient gain insight into their unconscious processes.

The therapist may also work with the patient to explore their early experiences and relationships, and to identify how these experiences may have contributed to their current patterns of thought and behavior. By gaining insight into these underlying psychological processes, the patient can develop new ways of thinking and behaving that can improve their mental health and overall quality of life.

Psychodynamic therapy is often used in conjunction with other forms of therapy, including medication management, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and supportive therapy. The goal of treatment is to help the patient achieve greater self-awareness and insight, and to develop more adaptive ways of coping with stress and other life challenges.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
