My name is Claire Johnson and I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist with over 20 years’ experience working in mental health services. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a therapeutic process which helps individuals understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present. It differs from most other therapies in aiming for deep seated change in personality and emotional development.
Sometimes people seek help for specific reasons which can include personality problems, depression, anxiety, eating disorders or bereavements. At other times help is sought because of more general underlying feelings of depression or anxiety, difficulties in concentrating, dissatisfaction in work or inability to form satisfactory relationships. Many people who experience a loss of meaning in their lives or who are seeking a greater sense of fulfilment may be helped by this kind of psychotherapy. Sessions can be once weekly or twice or three times per week depending on your individual needs. Occasionally, the treatment might be of short duration during a period of crisis but generally speaking psychodynamic psychotherapy is best considered as a longer-term treatment involving a significant commitment for both patient and therapist.
