            In my approach to therapy, I use a mix of theories and techniques, starting with some of Freud’s most enduring insights and a century of revisions to them. Dynamic therapy, as it’s called. Also, I try to help the patient experience the feelings he has buried, rather than just talking intellectually about his life. Many approaches try to do this nowadays, and collectively they are sometimes called “experiential” therapies. And I try to help change unconscious beliefs by using techniques from a newer model called Coherence Therapy. But whatever the labels, I want to get to the root of the problem and fix it whenever I can.
