What is Humanistic Psycho Dynamics?
Humanistic therapy, also known as the humanistic approach, is an umbrella term that covers several types of therapy, including person-centred therapy, Gestalt, existential therapy, solution-focused therapy and transactional analysis.
The humanistic approach is about free will, self-discovery and achieving your full potential as a human being, rather than concentrating on individual problems or symptoms. It looks at everything that makes you who you are and focuses on you as a unique individual and your relationship with the world around you.
The therapy is client-led, so your therapist will work with you on the issues you want to explore. They’ll help you think about your feelings and take responsibility for your thoughts and actions. Your therapy may be short or long-term, depending on your needs.
Psychodynamic theory, also known as psychoanalytic psychotherapy, helps clients understand their emotions and unconscious patterns of behaviour. In the broadest sense, it is an approach to psychology that emphasises systematic study of the psychological forces underlying human behavior, feelings, and emotions and how they might relate to early experience. It is especially interested in the dynamic relations between conscious motivation and unconscious motivation
