Timothy A Sanderson, MD, Jungian, ATR, Psychiatrist in Norfolk
Having trained as a psychiatrist, an art therapist, and a Jungian analyst, I approach each individual as unique. I focus on the value of that uniqueness and encourage the development of individual solutions to the problems and suffering that individuals bring into treatment. I view anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and problems in relationships as manifestations of unsuccessful attempts to adapt to both the outer world of collective demands and the inner world of one's own individual feelings and needs. Being healthy in the world means balancing the needs for individuality with needs to fit into the collective world.
It is not easy to seek help for psychological difficulties. The process of psychotherapy requires taking risks that often feel daunting. Living in a culture which does not value psychological development increases the feeling of vulnerability an individual experiences when seeking to resolve psychological problems through self-discovery.
I encourage individual wholeness to emerge. Attention to dreams and other expressions of unconscious processes helps us understand how the wholeness of an individual is seeking to be lived. The more each of us is able to be true to herself or himself, the less problematic our symptoms become.
