Each individual comes to therapy with a unique set of concerns and circumstances. Individual psychotherapy may help patients experience lessening of their uncomfortable symptoms and perhaps insight into long term underlying conflicts which may be contributing to distress.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a particularly effective approach to therapy and focuses on the psychological roots of emotional suffering, It is often effective as part of a treatment modality for depression, anxiety, stress related physical issues, and many other mental health concerns.
Jonathan Shedler, PhD, of the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine suggests “The actual scientific evidence shows that psychodynamic therapy is highly effective. The benefits are at least as large as those of other psychotherapies, and they last.”
