Do you have deep unconscious issues that continue to influence your life? Would you like to learn to get in touch with these issues on a deeper level? Do you want to achieve lasting results that go beyond addressing the symptoms of underlying problems?
Jungian therapy, sometimes known as Jungian analysis or analytical psychology, is an in-depth, analytical form of talk therapy designed to bring together the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind to help you feel balanced and whole. Jungian therapy calls for you to delve into the deeper and often darker elements of your mind and look at the “real” self rather than the self you present to the outside world.
Jungian therapy focuses more on the source of a problem than on the manifestations or symptoms. Carl Jung believed that an individual’s repressed experiences and memories, in combination with what he called the “collective unconscious,” or natural traits that affect everyone, result in an imbalance between conscious awareness and the unconscious mind that has a detrimental effect on one’s emotional life. In analysis, you explore the deep-rooted causes of relationship problems and blocked emotions to achieve “individuation,” or wholeness.
