Psychotherapy is helpful for all individuals seeking to have a meaningful connection to themselves and the world.
Psychotherapy is generally a long-term type of therapy. As opposed to a set number of sessions, psychotherapy can last however long the psyche needs it to last. For some clients this looks like a few months of working together, for some clients it looks like many years of working together.
In psychotherapy, you can expect to engage in conversations that aim to deepen your self-awareness, as well as your compassionate curiosity. We will look together at the unconscious mechanisms that might be operating in your life and try to decipher what your psyche needs at this stage in your journey.
Jungian-oriented psychotherapy is not the same as Jungian analysis. To become a Jungian analyst one must study for years while receiving regular supervision and while being in regular analysis with a qualified analyst. The term “Jungian Analyst” is a protected title and cannot be used by someone who does not have the proper training and certification. Jungian-oriented psychotherapy is not a protected title in Canada; thus, it is important to look for certain qualifications when consulting with a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist. The most important qualification is that they have done the work, meaning they have been in their own analysis with a Jungian Analyst. In addition, it is important that they are continuously engaging with the Jungian community through lectures, seminars, workshops, or other means. As a conscientious Jungian-oriented psychotherapist I have completed an analysis with a Jungian Analyst and am currently (2023) in a second analysis with a Jungian Analyst. I complete workshops yearly and am currently (2023) attending the 2023/24 Seminar with the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts. Please feel free to email me if you wish to see the extra trainings I have completed over the years.
During our sessions we will work together to establish a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust, empathy, and respect. The journey of self-understanding demands honesty, and this cannot happen without a solid, caring, therapeutic alliance. Each individual experience of psychotherapy will be different. Some of the things you might experience in psychotherapy sessions with Cammi are:
- Dream exploration and discussing your associations to dream images.
- Working with metaphor.
- An intake in which we go over your early childhood experiences as well as your current beliefs, values, and goals.
- Working with imagination.
- Somatic work (working to understand our bodies and the mind body connection).
- Laughter (release is an important part of the process too!)
- Deep emotions
- CBT techniques and coping mechanisms.
- Working with art
