— C.G. Jung
Jungian Analysis is based on the work of the eminent, Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung and his 50 year study of the psyche. It embodies a unique, ongoing approach of working with both the conscious and unconscious mind. Jung believed that the unconscious holds the potential for the development of one’s individual uniqueness, creativity and spirituality and healing, and that it appears not only symbolically in dreams, but also through life experiences, body symptoms, and images. Aspects of the unconscious mind which are not recognized, or which manifest as faulty attitudes, actually can prevent the desired connection to one’s most authentic self. Jungian Analysis allows you to recognize and integrate unknown parts of yourself in order to relieve suffering and become fully who you are, as you deal with inner and outer tensions in new and unpredictable ways. Jung called this process individuation. While this journey takes courage, the benefits include self-acceptance and wisdom, the capability to free oneself from others’ expectations and to be able to discern and follow your own original path.
