About C. G. Jung
Jungian analysis is a method of psychotherapy developed by the distinguished Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Interests in Jung’s ideas have grown steadily over the years. His body of work is relevant in postmodern reviews of contemporary culture. Nearly all aspects of present-day culture—medicine, religion, philosophy, literature, art, and psychology—have been influenced by Jung’s body of work. His studies and writings on Eastern and Western religions, alchemy, parapsychology, and mythology have all focused on appreciating human nature. At the outset, his impact was considered more important to philosophers, writers, and storytellers than psychologists were. In today’s world, however, all individuals who have a growing concern with human consciousness and its potential, value his concepts and ideas.
The approach to psychological work evolved by C.G. Jung has become known as Jungian analysis, or more formally, analytical psychology. It is from Jung that we have gained terms such as archetypes, introvert/extrovert, personality types, and the collective unconscious. A Jungian analyst works with the symbolic language of the unconscious, accessed through dreams, fantasies, and imagination. In analysis, the goal is to discover the motives behind mental difficulties as a way of treating the root cause of these problems. In analysis, Roger works with you to uncover the source of your issues, rather than the symptoms associated with them. Sessions include discussions of life issues and concerns, interpretation of dreams, creative activity of all kinds to discern what unconscious energy wants to emerge, and where it wants to lead the individual.
