While The Jung Center does not operate a clinic nor formally endorse psychotherapy with particular therapists, we often receive questions about therapeutic resources available in Houston. Many types of therapy apply in practice the wide-ranging ideas of Carl Jung. Jungian analysis involves in-depth work with an individual trained in a formal analytical program, such as that offered in Zurich, Switzerland, where Jung lived and developed his ideas. There are regional and interregional training programs in the United States which also train individuals to become analysts. The format of analysis varies based on the needs of the client as well as the preferences and experiences of the analyst. Click here to learn about local options for training to become a Jungian analyst.
Jungian-inspired work also is offered by individuals trained and licensed as psychologists, professional counselors, social workers, and marriage and family therapists. Dr. Jung’s ideas have germinated a variety of treatment modalities, such as dreamwork, active imagination, sand tray, movement and dance, body-centered therapies, and transpersonal therapies which integrate practices from spiritual traditions of both the East and Western traditions.
Due to frequent requests, The Jung Center provides the following list of Jungian analysts, psychologists, and therapists, who are in some way affiliated with the Jung Center. The Center does not recommend clinicians, and it is often wise to interview two or three different individuals in making a decision of who might be most helpful for your particular issues and needs.
