Jungian psychology recognizes an unconscious dimension of the human personality and its influence in all areas including self-esteem, relationships, mental outlook, emotional reactions, creativity and performance. Jung identified the unconscious as a reservoir of human potential, while an unsatisfactory relationship to the unconscious is often at the root of personal and interpersonal problems.
Talking about yourself and what it feels like to be you can bring considerable benefits and often solutions are found quickly. However issues can be complex and longer-term therapy is needed. Conflict can be a call to explore yourself in greater depth. Here a Jungian analysis offers particular insight as the analyst is tuned to the language of the unconscious, experienced in understanding its images and exploring them creatively.
Discussing your dreams is an important aspect of Jungian psychotherapy. Dreams usually communicate what the conscious mind is unaware of. Often they point to the root of the problem, suggest a new direction or indicate unexplored potential. By paying attention to dreams you form a deeper relationship to yourself. Jung likened the message of a dream to hearing the voice of the soul speaking.
Individuation refers to the process of becoming the person you are meant to be. It is a call to be true to yourself. Jungian analysis helps you listen and understand your inner voice. A deeper sense of self and renewed purpose where life is more meaningful are often reported outcomes of a Jungian analysis.
