Jungian Analysis

Jungian analysis is both a form of personal exploration and a form of therapy for people who are in distress or have emotional problems, as well as for those who feel a lack of fulfillment or want to explore the direction or meaning of their lives.

Jungian theory understands that the psyche contains a drive towards balance and wholeness. Jung called this the process of individuation. Jungian analysis recognises the potential in each person and within a trusting and secure analytic relationship works towards allowing a person to develop into a more authentic sense of self.

Jungian analysis is about removing the obstacles to you ‘being who you most truly are’. The analyst works together with you to pay attention to the relationship between what is happening in your unconscious and what is taking place in your day-to-day life. In analysis, the ‘unbalancing’ content of the unconscious gradually manifests symbolically in dreams, in fantasies, in thoughts and feelings and in the transference relationship between the analyst and analysand. The goal of analysis is to set in motion a process of deep personal transformation.
