Jungian analysis is an in-depth self-exploration of both the conscious and unconscious aspects of an individual's personality.
Initially, most people enter analysis because of some stress or crisis in their lives. Jungian analysis involves a gradual process of exploring both the painful and obvious symptoms connected with the distress as well as the underlying root causes of the problem. This process is both relieving and healing, releasing the individual from otherwise repetitive and distressing feelings and behaviors.
There are some individuals that are not in such distress but feel their lives lack purpose and vitality. Self-exploration and dream analysis can unlock inner creativity and energy that is otherwise buried deep inside.
Finally there are individuals who are interested in deepening their self-awareness through an exploration of their unconscious. No matter what the motivation, analysis is a collaboration of two people devoted to the healing and creative expansion of one of them.
