About Jungian Analysis

Jungian psychoanalysis works a bit differently than counselling and psychotherapy since it often means going into greater depths of the psyche over a longer period, with the aim of deep healing, transformation and maturing of the personality. In analysis, we work not just with daily life issues and symptoms but also with unconscious material such as dreams and images that are then integrated into consciousness for healing and wholeness. Patients who undergo psychoanalysis find themselves better able to take responsibility for their lives and to have greater understanding and empathy for themselves and others. It can be particularly helpful where shorter treatments have not been effective, releasing deep emotional blocks, revealing new potentials of the personality and fostering creativity. A collaborative and trusting relationship between analyst and patient is central to the process and consistent, regular attendance is an essential aspect of the treatment. While the modern world often encourages quick-fix solutions to problems, Jungian analysis understands that deep, slow, intensive work brings lasting and profound change.

Below, I've set out some practical details of what this entails so you know what to expect. If you have other questions or if something doesn't make sense to you, please feel free to reach out by email (roisinjungian@gmail.com) and I'll be happy to respond.  

Initial consultation

The initial consultation lasts 50 minutes and is an opportunity for us to mutually determine if we might work well together. You are welcome to bring a dream or issue to discuss or I can answer any questions you might have. There is no obligation to continue if you decide after the initial consultation that I am not the right therapist for you. 

Location

I offer both in-person and online Jungian analysis and psychotherapy. In-person sessions are on Wednesdays and Fridays at The Natural Clinic, 23 Sullivan's Quay, Cork. Online sessions are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. 

How often and for how long?

Psychoanalysis is a type of depth psychology that means working at a minimum frequency of once-weekly sessions, although more often is encouraged. This pattern of regular attendance provides a reliable and safe container in which unconscious material can surface for healing and integration. The most transformative sessions often happen when you have no more conscious material to discuss and the unconscious has space to emerge in the session.

When you start analysis, you may come with a specific issue in mind that you would like to work on for a short time, or you may already feel that you would like to engage in a deeper transformation process over a longer timeframe. Both intentions are fine and the length of the analysis will ultimately depend on where you are in life and your conscious and unconscious needs and intentions. Please be mindful however that real, lasting transformation takes time and presence.  

Cancellation policy

Once we agree to start working together, I reserve a space in my schedule for you for the duration of the process and therefore do not offer that slot to anyone else. For that reason, I charge the full fee for sessions cancelled less than one week from the agreed session time, unless we can find a mutually convenient time to reschedule in the same week as the cancelled session.

Fees

The fee for clients living in Ireland is 90 euro per 50-minute session. 

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
