What to expect from Jungian Therapy?: A psychoanalytic approach developed by Carl Jung, Jungian therapy (also known as Jungian Psychotherapy and Jungian analysis) is rooted in achieving a balance between the conscious and the unconscious, in order to heal the whole.
Considered holistic in nature, meaning that it cultivates overall wellness, Jungian psychotherapy is beneficial for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, as well as for those suffering from specific emotional problems.
Jungian therapy works with the concept of the ‘collective unconscious’, believing that all humans are subject to certain psychic experiences and that it is only through understanding and accepting this that we can become whole.
What is Jungian play therapy?: Jungian play therapy (also called Jungian analytical play therapy) is centered towards children and believes that the therapeutic power of healing and transformation comes directly from within the child, and not from any outside technique/person.
Based on observation and experience, a Jungian play therapist will help promote pseudoscientific healing from within the child by using the symbolic language of play.
