Treatment

All forms of psychotherapy (psychoanalysis, behavioural and cognitive) have been shown to reduce distress and to promote physical and psychological wellbeing (Mumford, Schlesinger, & Glass, 1983; Sobel, 1995). However, those receiving psychodynamic treatment maintain therapeutic gains and appear to continue to improve after treatment ends (Shedler, 2010).

Psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are sometimes referred to as “talk therapy”. There is a growing body of scientific evidence showing the efficacy of a psychodynamic approach.

Psychodynamic treatment takes longer than many other therapeutic methods (CBT; DBT, Exposure Therapy).  Many people who chose psychodynamic treatment find they no longer need psychotropic medications.  For further information, see links below.
