Do you desire to deepen your healing approach?
Dream Therapy can offer many benefits to both you and your clients:
Acknowledging the benefits both patients and therapists experience from dream exploration, Smart Therapy™ decided to offer an introductory workshop on Dream Therapy in order to help other therapists start discovering how working with dreams can help their clients and practices
For over a decade Rebecca Steele, Registered Social Worker has offered Depth Therapy approaches, including dream analysis in her private practice. Rebecca’s training and experience in offering Depth Therapy approaches, as well as several years of receiving regular dream analysis consultations from psychotherapist-author Thomas Moore allowed her to really get a handle on what offering meaningful dream work can look like.
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.
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
Research also points to that working with a patient’s dreams can help with:
Difficult childhood experiences
Conflict and Defensiveness

“Our life is but one of the dreams of that more real life, and so it is endlessly, until the very last one, the very real life…”
“Our dreams recover what the world forgets”
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate”
“When you’re in your dreams, there’s something about being in that space that understands you, and that you are more you than you are in real life”
