ABOUT DREAM ANALYSIS
Many cultures and spiritual practices interpret dreams and dream symbols, devoting significance to this mysterious piece of our psyche. In psychology, dreams are understood as the communication between our unconscious and conscious minds. While in many traditions each dream symbol has it’s assigned meaning, in psychology we believe that dreams can only be understood in the context of the individual – that the meaning of a symbol is subjective and unique to you.
Dreams often allow us to play out and process painful and confusing emotions and experiences we have had, powerfully revealing a person’s deepest wounds and greatest desires. Exploring and understanding the significance of your dreams is a key component in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself.
Therapy is a place to begin looking at your dreams more thoughtfully, a place to dig deeper into their meaning in a safe and non-judgmental space. A therapist with experience in dream analysis will be able to guide you through your dreams and work with you to uncover the psychological meaning it may hold in the context of your life.
