Therapy according to the psychology of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung is an approach which takes into account the unconscious as well as the conscious. It aims to bring unconscious contents into consciousness. The goal is individual development, an inner process of self realization, which leads to an increase in consciousness or self awareness. As a result the individual gains insight and becomes freer to make life-giving choices. One of the important tools to help increase self knowledge is working with dreams brought by the client. Dreams are material from the unconscious and bring us into contact with a deeper part of ourselves. Jung said that the “dream is a spontaneous self-portrayal, in symbolic form, of the actual situation in the unconscious.” During a session therapist and client talk about the current life situation of the client. If he or she has brought a dream, it is examined to learn what it has to say about the present situation. The dream broadens perspective. As long as there is respect for the unconscious in the work, the process is ongoing and other approaches to the unconscious may be used. The psychology of C.G. Jung, also known as depth psychology, teaches a way to self knowledge which is helpful for a wide range of life situations and is beneficial to people from all walks of life.
