What is Analytical Psychology?
Analytical Psychotherapy (also known as Jungian/Analytical Psychology) is a confidential form of psychoanalysis. In Analytical Psychotherapy it is assumed that the unconscious parts of our personality contain knowledge above and beyond what we know and understand consciously. According to the Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung (the father of Analytical Psychotherapy) psychological maladies and symptoms result from the split between the conscious and unconscious mind and our incapacity to process unconscious knowledge. When we lack understanding of our unconscious we are limited in our ability to respond productively, creatively and adaptively to life.
The therapist’s role is to assist the patient in uncovering, interpreting, and understanding his/her unconscious mind. Thus the aim of Jungian Psychotherapy is not simply the relief of symptoms but rather to offer a deep and long lasting change that comes from discovering the uniqueness of who we really are.
