Abstract
Lay persons’ speech and representations of psychotherapy was explored by conducting semi-structured interviews with six people of Swedish ethnicity and then compared to psychodynamic theory and method. The interviews were analyzed using a qualitative phenomenological-hermeneutical approach. Six major themes were identified in the transcripts: to help oneself, curiosity – fear, cooperation, the relationship, the environment and movement and the collective report of the participants’ appeared. The representations reveal frequent similarities to psychodynamic theory and method. This is discussed in terms of the results of previous studies on former clients’ representations of psychotherapy and different accounts for the revealed similarities.
