Talking Therapies: How do dreams contribute to wellbeing?

Dreams help us to process our conscious lives.

In this episode we speak to UKCP psychotherapist and author of The Hidden Lives of Dreams, Melinda Powell, to find out how much significance our dream state has on our understanding ourselves.

‘Over time dreaming appears to help consolidate the memories we need to develop an autobiographical sense of self.’

How can you start looking for meaning in your dreams? In Psychologies Magazine, UKCP psychotherapist Melinda Powell sets out five ways to get started.

Melinda is also a co-founder of the Dream Research Institutes. If you are interested in finding out more about dreams, then you can visit their website.
