What is Jungian Psychotherapy?
The dynamic approach to psychotherapy originated with
the work of Dr. Sigmund Freud in Vienna in the late nineteenth century
and was advanced by others to include Dr. Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist
who studied with Freud.
with Freud, Jung believed in an unconscious part of the mind which could
be accessed through the analysis of dreams, their symbolic meaning,
and the associations that the dreamer makes to the dream. We gain entry
to our unconscious minds through self examination of our thoughts, images
and behaviors, as well as through observing the ways in which we see
others and view the world.
psychotherapy provides a unique way of understanding ourselves, our
emotions and of helping us with our relationships and personal problems.
In Jungian psychotherapy our problems are understood in the context
of the whole person. Our motivation and personal commitment to understand
ourselves in a psychologically relevant way are seen as the most important
keys to becoming whole and conscious individuals, who follow their own
path toward becoming the most that they can be.
