History of Dream Therapy

Dream analysis and dream exploration is a transformational healing approach that dates back to 4000BC – and more recently was brought into prominence by Sigmund Freud with his publication: “The Interpretation of Dreams” in 1900.

Despite the history of this type of meaningful work, it has often been overlooked in contemporary times by the healing professions. Carl Jung, a follower of Freud very much believed in the importance of dreams including that it could help a person individuate and become fully themselves.

Why Offer Dream Therapy?

The patient sharing their dream with the therapist has been shown to help:   

  • Increase their self-awareness
  • Realize their ability to make self-initiated decisions
  • Diminish feelings of helplessness regarding their current life situation  

12 Studies suggest that patients experience sessions where dream work occurs to be of higher quality than non-dream therapy sessions.

Dream Research

Research also points to that working with a patient’s dreams can help with:  

  • Difficult childhood experiences  
  • Relational issues  
  • Depression/Anxiety  
  • Dissociation  
  • Conflict and Defensiveness  
  • Family issues  
  • Trauma  
  • Increasing self-insight

  2. Knowledge of the benefits for patient and therapist of Dream Therapy
