What is Depth Psychology?
Where do you find Jungian therapy in Birmingham, Alabama?
Jungian psychology teaches us to make contact with the deepest parts of the self.
There is a dormant “acorn” in each of us. Our “acorn” knows exactly what kind of oak it wants to be but needs sunlight, water, and soil to continue becoming an oak tree. We are supposed to listen to our acorn across the life journey but most people stop at some point. Many people will die a sapling, never having discovered what it was they were supposed to become. We often become too scared, too overwhelmed or too resigned at some point in life to listen to our acorns.
Depth psychology involves analyzing the deep structure of the unconscious mind and reconnecting with the forces that make us "us". It is an analysis of our own inner journey and sense of self.
Shadow work involves looking at the most unconscious parts of our self that scare us most in order to heal them.
