– James Hollis

“Moving forward sometimes demands that we live lost, knowingly surrendering our attachment to who we think we are, voluntarily stumbling around in the dark with little to guide us.”

– Jeff Brown

“Our thoughts are only illusions when they do not reflect who we really are, our emotions only wasteful when we are not seeing them all the way through to the spiritual lessons they contain.”

– Jeff Brown

What You Need to Know About Jungian Therapy

Jungian Therapy is more of  a perspective on treatment than a set of techniques.  Carl Jung resisted pushing diagnoses and pathologies on his clients.  Jung saw therapy as a creative and collaborative process, using methods like dream therapy and shadow work to explore the unconscious. 

In Jungian analysis symptoms are seen not as medical pathologies, but as opportunities for self discovery and blocked creative energy.  Depth psychology treats symptoms as indicators of the a need for growth.  Jungian therapy helps you listen to these indicators and decide how you what you would like to change.
