Jungian Therapy

Jungian therapy starts by recognising the potential in each individual and working toward allowing the person to develop themselves fully. This will frequently involve looking at the way that past experiences have affected the individual and the way they continue to prevent us from living fulfilled lives; in other words, Jungian therapy is about 'removing obstacles'.

Difficulties such as depression and anxiety may result partly from a lack of development of other elements of the personality, such as assertiveness or the willingness to take risks and engage with life; this will, in turn, usually be related to the person's life experience and family history. As Jung said, every individual is unique and each therapy will be unique to that individual and that therapist.

As all our members trained at the Society of Analytical Psychology this involved an in-depth study of the whole field of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, including recent developments in attachment theory and neuroscience. Each of our members will have made their own integration of these influences with their fundamental Jungian orientation.
