What is Psychodynamic Therapy?

Psychodynamic therapy is a form of talk therapy that focuses on exploring unconscious thoughts, emotions, and patterns of behavior to gain insight into present-day issues. It delves into early life experiences and relationships to understand how they shape current thoughts and behaviors.
