The Jungian Approach
The Jungian approach begins with the idea that we are born with an archetypal structure and not just a blank screen. In the psyche is an innate pattern that has been formed over the course of civilisation's development. Jung called this ancient layer, the collective unconscious. It is the foundation of the personality, a great sea, and the original source from which the individual roots and grows. In therapy we awaken this connection to the collective unconscious to bring a new force to the therapeutic process.
