Analytical Therapy


Analytical therapy involves the analysis of underlying, deep-rooted motivations that influence human behaviour. Analytical counsellors seek to establish a relationship between the consciousness and unconscious in order to heal a person's psyche.

History

Analytical therapy was founded by C. G Jung. Originally a protégé of Sigmund Freud, Jung developed an approach that was based on the study of the psyche through the exploration of dreams, religion and philosophy. His theories have been widely interpreted and adapted by modern counsellors, particularly with regards to gender issues and the study of personality type.

Approach

Analytic therapy is heavily influenced by Jung's approach to psychoanalysis. This differs from the Freudian approach and rejects the notion of sexual motive in the subconscious, instead focusing on other perceived factors such as the Archetypes model. Jung considered personal development as a mission of self-fulfilment that could last a lifetime while Freud's method of analysis tended to focus on events in early childhood.

How can it help?

Analytic therapy is used to treat a selection of issues such as emotional pain, depression and anxiety. It has the potential to help individuals achieve greater self-awareness and enable them to learn more about themselves. This can also have positive effects for those seeking to improve personal relationships.
