Jungian Dream Work

What kind of dreams do YOU have?


  • Do you have dreams that haunt you for the next few days? 
  • Do have a series of dreams where the same theme is repeated? 
  • Do you have dreams from childhood that you still remember? 
  • Do you have dreams that you are driving too fast to stop? Or that you can't find your car?
  • Do you dream you are going on a trip, but can't find the airport? Or your passport?
  • Do you have dreams which feature someone you know in real life and wonder if you should tell them? 
  • Do you have dreams which later come true? 
  • Do you have dreams that you have died? Or are pregnant? 
  • Do you have dreams that you are falling?  Or flying?
  • Do you have dreams that you have committed a crime, and are about to be found out?


These are all normal dreams.  The question is, what do they mean! Since about 1990 I have been working as an interpreter of dreams in the Jungian style, to help people with their psychological and spiritual progress.  Yes, dreams can really be about your spiritual life, even if you are not religious at all.


I work  with your dreams in several different ways:


  1. In individual sessions, Australia and internationally, via Skype or Zoom.
  2. In small groups, where you learn some of the theory behind dream interpretation, especially from the Jungian perspective, and each week we discuss a participants dream. 

So what are dreams?


Dreams are a  code, hidden away from the prying rational mind. We can utilise them to inform the decisions we make. They can guide the direction we take in therapy.  I provide an eclectic approach to dreams, with a Jungian emphasis.


As a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with a Jungian and philosophic orientation, I am not tethered to any particular method.  However, my own lively interest in the interpretation of dreams has led me to lean towards Jung because of his extraordinary insights and use of myth, fairy tale, symbol, metaphor – anything that will enable an investigation of the language of our personal dream world. I have interpreted the dreams of many people in the last 30 years, and not one dream has been the same as any other, although common themes emerge.

This course is relevant to you if:


  • You have curiosity about your own dream-life.
  • You are a therapist of any kind, who might be listening to the dreams of others:  psychologists, clinical psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors, doctors, psychiatrists and social workers.

Course structure:

The course structure has two parts.

First, I set a text for you to read - usually a chapter from a book. The first part of our meetings will be discussing the text, so you understand the fundamental principles of dream work.

Second, we will work with dreams brought by each participant. We generally have time to analyse 1 or 2 dreams each week. So start recording your dreams, if you do not already do so!

Size of group: 6 participants.

No prior experience with Dream Work is necessary, and you don't have to remember your dreams for this work to be relevant.

Credits: CPD points may be accrued by attending this course.  I am registered with AAOS and PACFA, and the Australian Psychological Society has the discretion to grant CPD points for this work. GPs can also claim small group learning credits, in addition to CPD.
