What is Jungian Therapy?
Jungian therapy is a type of depth psychotherapy sometimes known as Jungian analysis or analytical psychology. It’s 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 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.
