About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Psychodynamic therapy and its applications

In contemporary therapeutic practice, Drawing from Freudian principles, this approach aims to uncover subconscious influences on present behaviours, emotions, and thoughts. It focuses on delving into unconscious processes, interpersonal dynamics, and the impact of early childhood experiences on shaping personality development. At It's Complicated, we acknowledge the diverse applications of psychodynamic therapy across various mental health concerns. Whether navigating past traumas, addressing unresolved conflicts, or grappling with interpersonal difficulties, psychodynamic therapy offers a nurturing environment for exploration and healing. Through a psychodynamic lens our network of adept therapists facilitates a thorough understanding of the underlying dynamics shaping an individual's experiences.

 

How Psychodynamic therapy works

Sessions typically involve exploring recurring themes, patterns, and conflicts in the client's life. Through interpretation and reflection, the therapist assists the client in making connections between past experiences and present challenges, fostering insight and self-awareness. Clients actively participate in the therapeutic process, engaging in self-reflection, introspection, and open communication. They are encouraged to share any thoughts or feelings that arise during the session, regardless of how trivial or uncomfortable they may seem. As the sessions progress, the therapist may introduce therapeutic techniques such as free association, dream analysis, or exploration of transference and countertransference dynamics. These techniques aim to deepen the client's understanding of their internal world and promote psychological growth.

 

Is Psychodynamic therapy right for you?

Psychodynamic therapy offers profound benefits for individuals seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships. If you are open to exploring the underlying causes of your distress, willing to engage in self-reflection, and committed to the therapeutic process, psychodynamic therapy may be a suitable choice for you. At It's Complicated, our platform connects you with experienced psychodynamic therapists who tailor their approach to meet your unique needs and goals. Whether you're grappling with anxiety, depression, or interpersonal difficulties, psychodynamic therapy offers a supportive path towards self-awareness.
