Who is Jungian Therapy for?
Jungian Therapy (or Jungian Analysis) is a psychoanalytic approach developed by leading psychotherapist, Carl Gustav Jung. Jungian Therapy is used to treat people with a number of emotional and psychological problems including, Addictions, Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
How Does Jungian Therapy Work?
The Jungian approach aims to help individuals bring their unconscious and conscious together to help them to overcome psychological difficulties and enable self-awareness and self-actualisation. The key to this is discovering the root cause and motive related to the person’s difficulties. Strategies are then learnt to correct potentially maladaptive behavioural patterns.
I had a course of CBT Counselling with The Harley Psychology & Therapy Group (Richmond) and although it didn’t provide me with the quick fix miracle solution I was hoping for, it has made my problems feel more manageable.

What the Research into Jungian Therapy Says
Research studies on Jungian therapy have shown significant improvements for people on the level of symptoms, interpersonal difficulties, and personality structure on a daily basis. Additionally, studies reveal that after treatment these improvements are maintained in the short and long term. However, unlike Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Jungian therapy does not currently have a robust evidence base free of noteworthy criticism.
