Analysis and Psychotherapy
All BJAA Jungian analysts are psychotherapists whose extensive analytic training equips them to work deeply with individuals, helping to unlock the symbolic potential that can bring about healing and renewal. As Jungian analysts, we embrace the spirit of Jung’s work especially in terms of the creative far-reaching nature of the unconscious, the importance of discovering a symptom’s meaning and purpose and an appreciation of the psyche’s inherent drive towards wholeness, where one can potentially be freed up to become one’s true self. All BJAA Jungian analysts are registered with the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and the IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology).
Jungian Analytic Training
Informed by C G Jung’s model of the psyche, the BJAA training prepares individuals to work intensively with adults in Jungian analysis and psychotherapy. Over a four-year period, trainees learn about classical Jungian and post-Jungian theory along with the latest research-based developments in psychoanalysis and neuroscience. Carefully watching a child develop in the Infant Observation component of the course and completion of written work lays the ground for analytic work to begin with patients under supervision, and the clinical seminars enhance ways of understanding the complexities of internal and external worlds and how that impacts on the mind and on relationships.
We enable individuals to develop into Jungian analysts and psychotherapists with the expertise and confidence to work either in the NHS or in private practice - and once qualified, the BJAA offers plenty of opportunities to continue growing.
