“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
About Jungian Analysis
The aim of Jungian analysis is wholeness through the integration of unconscious forces and motivations underlying human behavior.
Through the use of depth psychology and dream analysis we explore ways the unconscious mind can be nurtured as your source of healing and individual development.
In practice, Depth Psychology seeks to explore the underlying motives that drive the unconscious which is that part of your mind of which you are unaware. Uncovering and exploring your unique spiritual, archetypal, and mythological motives are intrinsically healing and therapeutic. By connecting to your true inner essence you will discover wholeness and contentment with yourself and your existence.
Dream Analysis & Dream Work
Dream interpretation is the process of finding the meaning of your dreams. Your dreams reflect the richness and complexity of your psyche both unconscious and conscious. Carl Jung believed the psyche to be a self-regulating organism in which conscious attitudes are likely to be compensated for unconsciously.
Through Jungian analysis we analyze dream material in two ways: the objective and the subjective. In the objective approach, every person in the dream refers to the person they are: mother is mother, girlfriend is girlfriend, etc. In the subjective approach, every person in the dream represents an aspect of the dreamer. Often in dream-work, the dreamer will come to recognize that the dream characters can represent an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer.
Over time our work is to try to integrate the different experiences of your life and the different aspects and components of your psyche into a well-functioning whole.
Individuation is a transformative process whereby your personal and collective unconscious is brought into consciousness (by means of dreams, active imagination, or free association) to be assimilated into the whole personality.
Analytical Psychology (or Jungian psychology) is the school of psychology originating from the ideas of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung; our goal is wholeness through the integration of unconscious forces and motivations underlying human behavior.
The aim of psychotherapy is to assist you in reestablishing a healthy relationship to the unconscious: neither flooded by it nor out of balance resulting in depression, anxiety, and a life devoid of deeper meaning.
Analysis is a way to experience and integrate the unknown material. It is a search for the meaning of behaviors, symptoms, and events. There are many paths to reach this greater self-knowledge: dreams analysis is the most common, others may include expressing feelings in art, poetry, or other expressions of creativity.
