Why Therapy ?


People come into psychotherapy (also known as counselling) for many reasons.

They may experience disturbing moods or emotions such as depression or anxiety, anger or rage, envy or jealousy, or a certain inability to feel very much at all. They may be concerned about specific behaviours that seem compulsive, addictive or self-destructive. They may feel unsatisfied in their relationship with a significant other, or in their relationships generally. Many people in our diverse urban society are unsure about how to live in a way that is congruent with their image of themselves -- especially with respect to sexual orientation, gender or sexual identity, or ethnic cultural identity.

Sometimes we simply feel that something is missing in our lives -- that somehow things are not going as well as they could, or that it must be possible to experience more love and less fear.

Jungian analysis is an approach to psychotherapy that assumes the root of these problems lies in the depths of psyche -- if only because we have not yet fully become the person we are meant to be. It also assumes that psyche has the capacity to heal itself. Jungian analysis provides a safe place, a temenos or sacred space, where this can occur.




The right way to wholeness is made up of fateful detours and wrong turnings. C.G. Jung
