Therapeutic Dream Work
Sally Balfort Holistic Counselling
Therapy, Spiritual, Dreams
When we dream, we enter an altered state of consciousness where our unconscious mind is free to project (and therefore present us with) images and metaphors without interference from the rational, logical part of our mind (which is why many dreams are so confusing and illogical!). In the therapeutic setting, we use these images and metaphors to explore (often shadow) aspects of our psyche that we need to take a look at for personal and spiritual growth, rather than as predictions of future events. During these sessions, you will work with a counsellor to explore both the personal significance of these images and metaphors and the universal or archetypal meaning in order to seek the spiritual (or unconscious) messages they carry for you.
