Jungian analysis is based on the psychology of Dr. Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist. In analysis the person seeking help or healing or growth works together with the analyst in listening and being attentive to what the unconscious presents via dreams, reactions to every day encounters, relationships, fantasies, memories, depressive feelings, anxieties, whatever life brings.
The analyst and client look for and listen to deeper sources of understanding oneself, one’s motives, what might be blocking potential or keeping the person stuck or sad or whatever might be troubling the soul.
Underlying the work of Jungian analysis is the premise that Jung felt so important.
That foundation is that the healing process grows out of the patient’s personality, the aspect of the psyche that knows what the person most needs for healing and becoming his or her truest self rather than the direction of the analyst.
