When life becomes too hectic and difficult to deal with, it’s important for you to know that you are not alone and that there are professionals who are ready to help you. Jungian analysts offer a unique perspective and can help you move forward on the path to healing.
Jungian therapy is not like other therapy you may have been to. It analyzes personal and professional issues at a very deep level, well beyond the superficial. It identifies complexes to support your healing in a creative and productive fashion. It also helps you by supporting your creating and maintaining positive relationships.
When you first talk with the analyst, it’s essential that you and the analyst get along because you want to start healing off on the right foot. You are not likely to experience much healing if you don’t feel comfortable with your analyst.
In your sessions, you’ll learn to embrace the inner truths that your wiser unconscious self already knows. Dreams show us gaps between consciousness and these inner truths, and they find problems connected to our consciousness’ attitudes toward these truths. While you may not always remember your dreams, you may discover that you start to more often as you work through your therapy sessions.
If you remember a dream you have before you start to work with your therapist, share it during the first meeting. This helps the therapy and healing to move forward correctly.
Don’t worry if you don’t dream that often or don’t regularly remember your dreams. Even so, Jungian therapy can be beneficial. It’s important to still try Jungian therapy because it can be very helpful.
You will typically meet with your analyst once a week, in most cases. If you and your therapist find that a more frequent schedule is helpful, then you may meet more often. The sessions usually happen face-to-face because it offers a more personalized and therapeutic environment, but you and your therapist may find another arrangement works better.
- G. Jung, the founder of Jung analysis, was a Swiss psychiatrist who lived between 1875 and 1961. He understood the human psyche very well, and he held that the psyche is founded on a broader unconsciousness common to everyone. Complexes occur when there are disturbances between how we experience the world outside and the expectations we have of our basic inner consciousness. The Self is essential and is in control of the patterns of our fundamental inner human consciousness.
