As a psychodynamic counsellor, I will help a client to review their emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into their lives and their present-day problems and to evaluate the patterns they have developed over time. Recognising recurring patterns helps people see the ways in which they avoid distress or develop defense mechanisms as a method of coping so that they can take steps to change those patterns.
This therapeutic relationship (between the client and the counsellor) is key to helping the process work and can help to understand how you might interact and develop relationship patterns with those around you.
