Therapeutic Model

Psychodynamic or psychoanalytic therapy is a process which helps people understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present. Over time, it helps to reduce symptoms and distress and increase meaning and fulfilment in life.

In My Own Words

The Retreat is a really special service in that it offers so many different types of therapy, so we can be really thoughtful about what a client needs and what sort of help will be best for them. It’s also fantastic to work for an organisation with such a wonderful history, which did something very new 200 years ago; it thought of people with mental health problems as people, and treated their distress with compassion and thoughtfulness, a tradition which we continue today.
