Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of treatment, proven to be effective in many cases, that focuses on helping you to understand what is going on in your mind at a subconscious level. The idea is that conflicts, stress and tension that are experienced subconsciously can result in problems at a conscious level and that if you can become more self-aware, and understand how the past continues to impact on you today, you will be better able to manage your own feelings and behaviour. These conflicts often relate to experiences, or dysfunctional relationships in early childhood, that you might not have even thought about on a conscious level for years. You may have built defences to deal with a difficult situation then; your situation has changed but the deference remain and, instead of protecting you, they are causing real problems in your everyday life. Perhaps you are unwittingly trying to recreate relationships that were problematic for you as a child. Now as then, these relationships are not making you happy, but you seem unable to break out of a rut.

By figuring out what is going on in the depths of your mind, and resolving the areas that are problematic, you can address the issues that are causing stress and make the changes that are necessary for your happiness.

There are different ways in which your therapist can help you to uncover what is going on in your mind, including exploring your memories of childhood and the important relationships in your life. In conversation with your therapist, exploring your deepest thoughts and fears can be stressful and hard, but in the process people often find that they form a close therapeutic relationship with their therapist, and can make real progress relatively quickly.

Unlike traditional psychoanalysis, sessions are paced at a rate of one a week or so, so that you can make progress with your therapy in a way that is in sync with your family and work commitments.

Very thorough and attentive

I have attended and been seen by Dr Lincht. The service I had was excellent, she was able to give me a quick call back when I requested, when I was still making inquiries and and after the appointment she made herself available to answer my concerns. I would definitely recommend your company to my friends and family. Regards Phumla

I've just started consultation with Vjosa Hyseni and my initial call and subsequent session with her have been quite insightful and helpful. Vjosa has an in depth knowledge of her field as well as very warm and calming persona which really helps when discussing very personal and sensitive issues. A very positive experience all round.

I found my therapy very interesting and informing. It helped me to acknowledge things I hadn't done before. I'm really glad that I went and believe it will help me in the future

Very helpful team, quick to respond and knowledgeable.
