As well as completing a Bachelor in Psychology and Masters in Clinical Psychology Maree has also done a further three years postgraduate training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. This 3-year program with the International Masterson Institute in New York included the intensive study of all psychodynamic models. It focused on understanding and working with both relational trauma and the underlying personality/character structure of a person.
Maree works from a Psychodynamic framework. This is a developmental, self and object relations/attachment approach to psychotherapy. This type of therapy provides you an opportunity to explore your self; to understand who you are and what you need, and to become more aware of how you relate to yourself and to others. This therapy is generally mid to long term, depending on your individual needs, and is conducted on a weekly basis.
In the work of this psychotherapy your sense of self may become more whole; you may feel stronger, more confident, able to manage a greater range of emotions and be better equipped to handle life’s challenges. You may also grow in your capacity to have meaningful and satisfying relationships. You may then be able to create new possibilities and directions for yourself, and live life in a more creative and fulfilling way.
“Within a Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, I keep in mind the importance of attachment, development and personality . I also utilise a trauma-informed approach and psychological methods which assist with the embodiment of the real self . My main areas of work include emotional difficulties, intimacy issues, developmental/complex trauma (e.g. childhood emotional neglect, sexual abuse), personality issues, addictions, highly sensitive people and those wanting to connect to themselves and others in a more real and full way.”
