Psychodynamic Counsellor and Therapist

Tash Young Counsellor Psychodynamic Therapy Brighton



Psychodynamic therapy is centred around two ideas.


The first is that we have an unconscious. This means we can act in ways that we do not understand and feel things that we can not always explain. We can find ourselves unhappy, depressed, angry, distressed and unable to understand the reason. Alternatively, it may be that you repeatedly find yourself in difficult relationships and you are not sure why. Therapy can be about finding ways to make the unconscious, conscious so that you can understand yourself better and, if desired, change your responses and behaviours.


The second is that what happens to us in early childhood impacts on us as adults. We may spend some time looking at your childhood, and how it affected you in both positive and negative ways. This understanding can deepen your sense of self knowledge and give you a new appreciation of your life's path. 

Primarily, though, our therapy sessions would be about whatever you wish to explore, think about or question. I aim to be open and explorative, allowing plenty of time and space to learn about yourself without judgement. Whilst therapy can be serious and difficult, there is often a surprising amount of playfulness and humour that is possible in a safe, reflective space.

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.    -Rumi
