The dream shows the inner truth and reality
of the patient as it really is: not as I conjecture it to be,
and not as he or she would like it to be,
but as it is.
~ C.G. Jung
I also provide supervision to practicing therapists using the lens of the Jung's Analytical Psychology.
The Jungian perspective deepens understanding of the dynamics that arise within the dyad of therapy. For example, dreams can mirror what is happening unconsciously between the therapist and patient. Subtle and, of course, not-so subtle images manifest that can help objectify and illuminate a patient's, as well as the therapist's, unconscious attitudes toward, and experience within, the therapeutic encounter.
The metaphors that arise from the unconscious through the medium of dreams can also help to focus issues, relax resistances and redirect questions inward. In addition, a dream that has been plumbed for meaning can become a tangible reference point that can be visited and revisited, over time, to measure change in psychic structure.
Furthermore, a patient's dreams can often refer to one another creating a visual and autobiographical narrative, in real time, about the presence and development of particular complexes or issues as well as pinpointing, "the inner truth and reality of the patient as it really is...", regardless of how one might present one's self.
Supervision is also available by Phone and Skype.
