Jungian analysis, like psychotherapy in general, addresses challenges in the realms of love, work, and play. We all have deep-seated needs: to be known and appreciated, to love and be loved, and to experience meaning and joy in our lives. When these desires are frayed or frustrated, we suffer, perhaps becoming depressed or anxious.
Key to this relief and greater autonomy is the therapeutic relationship itself. Sharing one’s feelings, thoughts, memories, and hopes with someone who is open, caring, and fully engaged is the fertile ground for healing and wholeness. The resulting relationship is not just mutually respectful, it become a temenos—a sacred container—where deep understanding and transformation takes place.
