What is Jungian Analysis and How Does It Work?
Helen Brammer-Savlov practices Jungian Analysis (also called Analytical Psychology or Psychoanalysis) that aims to reconnect the individual to his or her own core being and thereby be able to live consciously their unique life path or individuation journey.
Jung’s unique contribution to depth psychology was the discovery that the unconscious has two “layers”, one personal or subjective “layer” and one transpersonal or objective dimension which is common to us all. This objective or collective dimension is revealed through universal patterns and images which we find expressed in all the world’s great symbol systems of mythology and religion and which re-emerges, primarily, in our dreams. This is radically different from a Freudian view of the unconscious.
Jung also recognised that a life without meaning and purpose is behind the sense of loneliness and alienation suffered by many people today. He understood that the cause lay in living out of touch with the depth unconscious and the creative core at our centre which he called the Self.
Jungian Analysis acknowledges we have a depth psychic need for a spiritual dimension in our lives in order for healing to take place. Again, this attitude differs profoundly from other forms of psychoanalysis and many counselling traditions.
In analysis we become more conscious of our “blind spots” and this helps to free us from past fixed patterns of behaviour and release unlived potential. Jungian analysis can also enable us to accept aspects of our lives which can’t be changed and open our imagination to what may be transformed.
Jung wrote: “My aim is to bring about a psychic state in which my patient begins to experiment with his own nature – a state of fluidity, change and growth where nothing is eternally fixed and hopelessly petrified.”
