What is Jungian Analysis or Jungian Oriented Psychotherapy?
Jungian Analysis is a psychological approach developed by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and one of the pioneers of modern depth psychology, to understanding the mind (psyche). In a Jungian analytical approach, the analyst and client work together to increase the client's awareness of the unconscious aspects of the personality in order to stimulate a quality of psychological balance and wholeness. The process helps bring a sense of relief and meaning to psychological suffering, and it can assist the individual who desires to pursue personal psychological growth.
The unconscious makes itself evident through many forms. Among these are dreams, recurring thoughts and fantasies, habits, symptoms, and repeated patterns of behavior, to name just a few. Therapy is the interactive process between the therapist and client that strives to make an emotional connection between these seemingly perplexing events and their symbolic or purposeful meaning for the client.
