Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy evolved from a form of depth psychology which focuses on the unconscious in an effort to alleviate psychic tension. Psychotherapists believe that maladaptive behaviors develop early in life and eventually cause problems in every day life. 

The therapist helps the client acknowledge the presence of inner conflicts that are creating symptoms in his/her present life. Developing insight is an important part of the therapy. Eventually the client acknowledges the inner conflict and with the help of the therapist develops strategies for change.
