Methodology

My Approach:

The specific focus of my approach is from a “Neo Classical Jungian” theoretical method. This approach incorporates the classical ideas that originated from C.G. Jung (1875-1961) and extends those ideas, thus the ‘neo’, in such a way as to address the specific sources of the distress in the individual within the current cultural context. The modern human being is deeply affected and formed by concepts that originated and evolved during the Age of Enlightenment, or simply The Enlightenment, centered in the eighteenth century. This is the time in Western philosophy and cultural life when Reason was advocated as the primary source and legitimacy for authority.

  • Attachment-based
