What is psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy?

Psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy draws on theories and practices of analytical psychology and psychoanalysis. It is a therapeutic process which helps patients understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present. It differs from most other therapies in aiming for deep seated change in personality and emotional development. Many people who experience a loss of meaning in their lives or who are seeking a greater sense of fulfillment may be helped by psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy.
