I have received tremendous help from the psychodynamic approach. I've been with my T forever, and she is kind, loving and very engaged and concerned about my well being.

I mentioned in your earlier post that what you describe with your psychologist might be a psychoanalytic approach, in which, sometimes, the anaylyst serves as a blank slate. My psychiatrist practices a variety of approaches, but this is my least favorite. That said, we have plenty of lively discussions when he uses a more interactive approach. But, his psychoanalytical approach was just what I needed, too, as a sharp push forward. It feels less kind, and can be tremendously hurtful at times, but I've learned that while I can't change his approach, I can change how I respond to it.

In any case, both approaches have worked very well for me.

Not sure if I was any help!
