Many people who experience anxiety and depression find that as they do the work of therapy, these feeling states lift. The work is showing up and having a conversation. As depression and anxiety lessen, many people find that they have more energy to devote to the pursuits that they most enjoy including meaningful relationships.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a two-fold process. The first part explores the conflict between desires and fears that the person seeking assistance is experiencing. The second part is examining what happens in the relationship with the therapist. This allows the two people in the consulting room to explore the client's patterns of relating to others, their historical origins and current use. If these old patterns are no longer valuable, the therapeutic relationship offers a safe environment to test out new ways of communicating. It is in this way that therapy becomes experiential and thereby offers lasting benefits.
