Psychodynamic Therapy helps clients uncover the cause of their feelings and behaviour, revealing deeper and often unconscious motivations, where CBT, for instance, is more focused on alleviating symptoms as quickly as possible - showing the client how to replace dysfunctional thought patterns, perceptions and behaviour with more realistic or helpful ones.

Successful treatment should not only relieve symptoms, it should also result in heightened enjoyment of life, including the ability to have more fulfilling relationships, greater self-esteem and richer experiences in careers and daily life and the ability to respond in a more satisfying way to life's challenges and opportunities.

While Psychodynamic Therapy can be brief, it is often longer-term and less structured than CBT.
