What is Jungian psychotherapy?

What is Jungian psychotherapy? Jungian psychotherapy, also known as analytical psychology, is a therapeutic approach developed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. This approach is based on the idea that the human psyche consists of three components: the conscious mind, the personal unconscious, and the collective unconscious. Jungian psychotherapy emphasizes the exploration and integration of the unconscious aspects of the psyche in order to achieve greater self-awareness and personal growth. This can involve techniques such as dream analysis, active imagination, and the exploration of archetypes, symbols, and myths. In Jungian psychotherapy, the therapist and client work collaboratively to uncover unconscious patterns and conflicts that may be contributing to emotional or psychological difficulties. The therapist helps the client to develop a deeper understanding of their own inner world and to discover new ways of relating to themselves and others. Overall, Jungian psychotherapy seeks to help individuals achieve a greater sense of wholeness and integration by exploring the unconscious aspects of the psyche and integrating them into conscious awareness.
