Jungian Analysis

Jungian analysis is often associated with the phrase “depth psychology” because it approaches psychological questions about anxiety, depression, family, relationships, life transitions and trauma by looking in depth. It differs from cognitive and behavioural therapies in that it emphasizes the role of the unconscious and the inner life of the individual, aspects of personality that are often experienced only indirectly through images, fantasies and symbols. In addressing a specific problem, Jungian psychotherapy works holistically, in the sense that the analyst and analysand work consciously and at the same time cultivate a receptive response to mental processes that are unconscious and not easily available to consciousness. In a broader context, Jungian psychoanalytic work establishes greater equilibrium between what is known consciously and what is not yet known, which makes space for change, so that one may become less reactive, less prone to stereotypic responses, more mindful and resilient – the better to endure life’s difficult truths and to retain a capacity for curiosity and discovery.
