We also offer a variety of learning events, inviting open conversation and exploration to further develop Jungian thought.

Are you a qualified therapist who is interested in training as a Jungian analyst? The AJA training is for you.
The seminar programme consists of 20 weekend modules taking place over two years (2024 and 2025). The programme is concerned with clinical, personal, social, intellectual and spiritual aspects of individual development. The training, in the context of a sustained personal analysis, aims to provide a thorough analytic foundation. Within this, the development of sound therapeutic practice cultivates a respect for the healing potential of the unconscious.
The archetypal and prospective character of the unconscious forms the centre of clinical theoretical work. In a practical sense, this means that the orientation of the training is on healing through symbolic transformation, as well as the diagnosis, aetiology and treatment of symptoms. Dream analysis is an integral part of the therapeutic approach as is analysis of transference and countertransference.
