MA, MPhil, Diploma Candidate, CG Jung Institute, Zürich
I offer Jungian psychoanalysis in English in person or online. I work with a wide range of issues, including depression, conflict, relationship difficulties, trauma, grief, anxiety, loss of meaning, spiritual crisis, and major life changes. I am a Diploma Candidate in the C.G. Jung Institute, Zürich, in the final stages of my training to become a Jungian psychoanalyst.
Jungian analysis is a journey through the rich mystery of inner life that allows you to explore and understand the dreams, fantasies, and images that arise spontaneously from the depths of the psyche. In our work together, we give space to the neglected parts of you and seek to uncover new potentials that will help you on your path to change. This may involve exploration of past experiences or of repeating life patterns but we also attend to the present, asking questions such as 'Why does this symptom arise now? What does it want of me?' At a time when many modern psychologies aim at quick-fix solutions, Jungian analysis instead seeks to restore your connection with the natural rhythms of psychic life, to the wisdom and integrity that evolve with a depth understanding of the Self. By finding the meaning in adversity and engaging your full potential, it becomes possible to lead a more fulfilling and authentic life. The work may include dream analysis, active imagination, journaling, painting, or simply listening deeply and with an open mind.
I also offer sandplay as an adjunct to psychoanalysis. Developed by Dora M. Kalff, and based on Jungian psychology, sandplay is a creative method in which the client makes a series of 3-dimensional pictures by placing miniatures in a sandtray. By creating a bridge between the conscious and unconscious, this work allows the individual to overcome the stasis of one-sided rational thinking, engaging the whole brain and accessing deep levels of the psyche. It has proven benefits in work with trauma, offering a non-verbal mode of expression that allows exploration and transformation of difficult emotions and experiences.
Finally, I treat each person who comes to see me as an individual - there is no one-size-fits-all model and together we can find a good way forward for you.
