Depth psychology

How can a depth psychologist help?

Depth psychology is designed for anyone who is in need of psychological support through coaching and psychotherapy. Perhaps you can identify with one, or more, of the following questions:

  • Why do I feel so tired and sad?
  • Why do I feel anxious and tense?
  • How do I pick up my life again after a (sudden) death in my family?
  • Am I suffering from burnout?

These are not questions where you can give a simple answer. Analytical therapy can be a solution.

Well-intentioned advices and makeshift measures do not work. Actual healing is in a place that you cannot  access easily: in the unconscious. I can help you tap into this unknown source of power and wisdom within yourself. 

 

I would be happy to guide you so that together we can find the answers.

Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung were important founders of depth psychology. Jung called his version of depth psychology Analytical Psychology. It is about becoming who you really are. Jung calls this the way to your deepest self, the way of individuation. To really get to know yourself, it is necessary to also gain insight into what lives in our unconscious. We are only aware of a small part of what is happening in our psyche; the major part takes place in the unconscious. Here is the hidden treasure that can help us gain more insight into ourselves.

 

The Professional Association for Jungian therapists (JVATN) describes analytical therapy as follows:

 

"It is a form of therapy in which the analysis of unconscious processes is key. An important principle of analytical psychology is self-discovery. In this process, individual development is important, so that every person can be the person he/she is essentially and can do what suits him/her. The therapeutic work is based on the principle that the unconscious that needs to be integrated in the conscious life can be found by means of symbolic images/contents."

Only with the heart can you see clearly, the essential is invisible to the eyes!
