Psychodynamic therapy

The term psychodynamic psychotherapy has been used in recent years to describe a newer form of therapy that has its roots in classical psychoanalysis. It differs from psychoanalysis by being less intensive (typically once a week as opposed to 4-5 times in classical psychoanalysis) and potentially shorter in duration where psychoanalysis continues for a number of years.

Therapist and therapist sit opposite each other instead of using the traditional “divan”.

 

Therapeutic Approaches

Therapeutic techniques vary. On the one hand, there are those that are based on the interpretation of interpersonal relationships “here and now” with a simultaneous partial examination of the first family relationships. The ultimate goal is to increase the degree of self-knowledge and improve the patient’s relationship with his environment. On the other hand, techniques with a mainly supportive character have been developed. The goal is to strengthen the patient in the effort to manage major problems, to achieve relief of symptoms and increase the ability to adapt.

The supportive form of treatment is addressed to patients with more severe psychopathology, crisis situations, etc. and is more flexible in terms of the frequency of sessions and the total treatment time.

During the appointment

–> Psychiatric assessment:

At the first visit, a detailed social, psychiatric, other medical history is taken, as well as a medication check.

Following is a diagnostic investigation of the existing symptoms with an interview and, where necessary, the use of questionnaires / psychometric tests. It is recommended that the patient have with him his complete medical file (if any), ie previous medical opinions, imaging and laboratory examinations, as well as his medication.

The presence of a familiar person is very important and desirable as it can help in gathering information about the patient’s history, thus contributing to the correct diagnosis. In addition, the involvement of relatives after consultation with the patient can be valuable in terms of planning the treatment plan.

In our office there is also a psychiatric evaluation for the issuance of medical opinions for professional reasons (teachers / security guards) other than firearms licenses.

 

 

–> Neuropsychiatric examination for the presence of ADHD or autism spectrum disorder:

Three (3) appointmens, including

taking a history from the patient and relatives,

completing questionnaires,

physical examination and

ordering blood tests and urine tests.

 

 

–> Swedish Nationals:

As a doctor in the Swedish public health system, the doctor is not legally allowed to see Swedish patients in her private practice, as this is contrary to Swedish rules prohibiting competition between a public and a private health care provider.

This means that she is not allowed to see Swedish patients.

Please note that the doctor will not arrange appointments with patients with substance dependence and I do not undertake patients who wish the chronic administration of drugs with addictive properties, eg benzodiazepines (sedatives).
