AB Clinical Psychology - subconscious inner world

Understanding our inner world might take time and effort, but self-awareness is vital for change and growth.

Here at AB Clinical Psychology, we understand how tough it be to get to the heart of what drives our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. 

Humans are complex beings, and often we can act automatically, without conscious awareness. It can take time and effort to learn about ourselves and uncover why we sometimes behave in a way inconsistent with our personal values.

Talking with a therapist is a great way to increase your self-awareness. Sometimes even learning to recognise maladaptive patterns is all it takes to shift them.

In our latest post, we talk about how unconscious defence mechanisms, first described by Sigmund Freud in 1894, can influence our interactions with family, friends, and in the workplace.
