Organizational Effectiveness Consultant
Training as a Jungian Analyst
I am a freelance Organizational Effectiveness Consultant focusing on people, process, structure and technology. I graduated with a first degree in International Business Studies from Brunel University. I have a masters degree in Jungian and post-Jungian Studies from the University of Essex, a Postgrad Cert in Human Resource Management from the University of Westminster and I am currently training as a Jungian Analyst at the International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich, Switzerland. I am a co-opted Board Member of the British Association of Psychological Type (BAPT), I'm certified by the British Psychological Society (BPS) to administer personality assessments and give feedback. I am also certified to administer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Gifts Compass Inventory (GCI) personality assessments and feedback.
What is a Jungian Analyst?
An analyst offers psychotherapy and analysis to help people who are in distress or have emotional problems, and to help people develop their individuality. I am interested in applying Jungian analytical psychology, not just in the therapeutic process, but to explore individuals and organisations-in depth. Given the importance of the unconscious in a Jungian therapeutic process, I also want to explore the role of the unconscious in the workplace, specifically the dynamics between an individual's unconscious and the workplace.
I have always been curious about the psyche, unconscious, personality and organisations. This curiosity led me to a career in Human Resources where I had an opportunity to see how individuals interact in the workplace and how the dynamics contribute to, or impede, business success.
When I started to study Jungian Psychology, I discovered a unique perspective on individual behaviour, how the unconscious manifests in people, and its effect on the effectiveness of the organisation. I have also seen how Jungian psychotherapy can help an individual to overcome emotional difficulties and achieve a sense of wellbeing.
I started #JungianBitsofInformation because I saw a unique opportunity to bring Jungian and organisational effectiveness theory together. Both theories combine to provide thought provoking insight into, and potential solutions to resolve, common individual and workplace problems.
Jungian analytical psychology is a broad and complex application; it can be difficult to understand the insights derived from an analysis of an individual. I want to present Jungian ideas in a way that helps individuals to better understand their personality, and to help organisations gain a new perspective of common workplace issues.
The idea of my blog is to analyse personality and workplace issues using Jungian concepts or "bits of information". The hashtag# symbolises the search handle on social networking sites such as Instagram and LinkedIn. By typing a key word preceded by a hashtag# within the search field on LinkedIn, the search results will show any post, article, page or profile related to the key word. The hashtag# is a useful way to filter a large body of information for the specific information that you are looking for.
#JungianBitsofInformation acts in the similar way. It distils Jungian theory so you don’t have to. Each blog will give you specific Jungian information relevant to the topic being analysed.
The encirclement of the hashtag# also has significance. According to Jungian psychology, a circle is a sign of "wholeness". Wholeness is the ultimate goal of personality transformation. The process of transformation involves an in-depth exploration of one's personality, psychological type and underlying patterns of behaviour. This can bring a sense of wholeness in the individual i.e. a new attitude and vitality.
