Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a quest to unravel deeply held beliefs and relational expectations.  Firmly embedded in our unconscious mind, many of our assumptions by which we live, are not available to conscious thoughts. At times, early experiences generated painful distortions of who we or others are, thus affecting our sense of emotional well-being. ‘To make the unconscious conscious’ is one of the fundamental principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Another way to express this is to improve our ‘affect tolerance’ which is the capacity to become aware of and embrace our emotional experiences. The more we can tolerate our feelings, particularly our painful feelings, the less we will need to fear or avoid them.

People who suffer from ongoing mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relational difficulties, trauma, or eating disorders will benefit from this form of psychotherapy. For the evidence base of psychodynamic psychotherapy please visit the website of the Queensland Psychoanalytic

Psychotherapy Association (QPPA) at

Therapy sessions will gradually make you aware of thoughts and feelings that have affected your emotional experience such as mood and self-esteem. The therapy process will lead to subtle yet profound changes in your emotional awareness and regulation and will improve your capacity to respond to life and interpersonal challenges.

About Sigrid

Throughout the past 30 years, I worked in a variety of roles across private, non-government and tertiary educational settings. These work experiences taught me invaluable lessons about the psychotherapeutic process and helped develop my approach. I completed extensive training in psychodynamic psychotherapy with the Queensland Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Association and the Brisbane Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies. I continue learning from the encounter with my patients, supervisors, and colleagues. I am originally from Germany and happy to conduct sessions in German if required.
