Psychodynamic psychotherapy involves a deep exploration of a person's psychological processes. If you embark on this type of therapy, you will be encouraged to reflect on whatever you feel or think as it arises, as well as how you experience the relationship between you and your therapist. You will not be asked to engage in practical strategies or written homework, but that does not mean the sessions will be less rigorous. The aim of therapy is to make unconscious processes more conscious, which ultimately reduces psychological difficulties and facilitates better understanding of yourself and your relationships. This type of therapy is open-ended, and can be useful for longstanding or complex difficulties which have not responded to other types of therapies in the past.
