Are you a licensed or clinical therapist?
NO. I am the founder of The Catharsis Application Program – a specialized method of graphic expression under musical induction designed to facilitate the emergence and the resolution of repressed emotions. The guiding theoretical orientation incorporates Jungian's psychology and symbolism as well as the work on the imaginary and the symbolic imagination led initially by Mircea Eliade and Gaston Bachelard, then further developed by Gilbert Durand.

What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Greetings Chantal and welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us!
As you may know, we currently have over 3300 members from all over the world. I hope as you explore the community a bit you find a dynamic group of like-minded people who are all deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from many walks of life--artists, writers, doctors, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared.
