Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
- Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is based on the psychoanalytic approach pioneered and mainly developed by Sigmund Freud.
Most forms of current psychodynamic therapy are modeled on it.
The core idea in psychoanalytic psychotherapy is that our current behaviour and actions reflect our forgotten personal history from many years ago.
As we learn about these parts of our past we gain new freedom to make better choices about our lives.
