Jungian Analysis and Therapy

What Is Jungian Analysis and Psychotherapy?

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 psychotherapy apply in practice the wide-ranging ideas of C.G. 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. Training programs in the United States also prepare individuals to become analysts. The certifying and governing body for Jungian analysts is the International Association for Analytical Psychology ( The format of analysis varies based on the needs of the client as well as the preferences and experiences of the analyst.

Psychotherapy influenced by Jung and post-Jungian thought 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 from around the world.
