Psychodynamic Counselling is one of the major traditions within contemporary talking therapy, helping us to achieve insight and understanding regarding our difficulties - individuals can gently unravel, and work through deep-rooted feelings to resolve those issues and feel more at ease.
This therapeutic intervention is broadly based on the theory that interpersonal issues are to some extent a result of repressed emotions or negative life experiences. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends this type of therapy for anxiety, depression and personal difficulties.
Maja Andersen (MBACP) - Counselling Therapist
Before training as a psychodynamic therapist, I worked in the field of finance, establishing a career as a corporate accountant for large organisations in the South East of England.
Volunteer-work with adults suffering from substance misuse and survivors of sexual trauma paved the way into the field of psychology and the helping profession. This ultimately guided a decision to pursue this passion fully by embarking on further academic studies.
