Couples and Individuals
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy works by fostering a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you. It supports the in-depths exploration of the past and looks at how past experiences might colour the present, contributing to some of the difficulties you want to work on in therapy. Such difficulties might include; relationship problems at home or work, underlying feelings of depression, anxiety, traumatic losses or painful life events. Difficulties in relationships are one of the most common causes of unhappiness, and often bring people to therapy.
Some of the reasons for seeking therapy include:
- Sense of something missing/lost in the relationship
- Lack of purpose or direction in life
- Repeating destructive relationship patterns
- Escalating or circular arguments, distressing patterns of conflict
- Loss of intimacy and sexual desire
- Impact of professional life on the relationship or quality of life
- Parenting issues, dealing with toddlers or teenagers
- Struggling with infertility or the impact of becoming parents
- Impact of postnatal depression on the relationship
- Commitment difficulties
- Divorce and separation
- Coping with a break-up or relationship break-down
By helping you to identify the roots of your difficulties therapy can bring clarity and facilitate positive change.
