CG Jung Ireland has been in existence for some time now and I know it still receives a large number of visits.
Visitors old and new may wish to visit Psychotherapy in Dublin which features a new approach. Using images and text,
this blog examines symbols and concepts of importance in psychotherapy. My own love of photography allows me to offer a personal
touch. You are most welcome to visit http://coinneachshanks.blogspot.com and share my images - which are mostly about the ordinary and unusual features that Dublin has to offer.
|Psychotherapy in Dublin
"In recent blogs I've
been talking about time. What does this mean, you may ask. Well, psychotherapists are very careful about time. The client
should arrive on time, the client should use the time properly and so on. At the same time .... time is a debatable concept.
When I wrote the last blog about duration, I was struck by the fact that on that very evening, several television documentaries
about time were screened. Synchronicity prevailed for that period. Time is often symbolised by the wheel and of course most
( but certainly not all) public clocks are circular. There are many such clocks in Dublin. You really don't need a watch -
they're everywhere. So what time is it in Sandymount, Dublin? We rather value the idea of being in the present, but according
to Bergson, the present creates nothing. Like a set task it carries out the past, but adds nothing to being. This
is debatable if indeed time is composed of discontinuous instants. And it would threaten the value of the psychotherapeutic
experience which somehow lies between the living, experienced past and the future. In the therapeutic space, for 50 minutes
or so, time breaks."
