Professional Jungian Coaching

Jungian coaching is a recent development which puts the practical discoveries from C.G. Jung’s analytical psychology, validated by modern neuroscience and clinical practice, at the disposal of coaches with a strong grounding in humanistic coaching competencies, values and ethics. This new coaching science can be applied in individual, group, and organisational contexts. Two very different fields which have been established are:
• Jungian coaching for corporate leaders.
• Jungian sports coaching for youth football trainers.
The foundation for coaching in general is defined by the Institute of Coaching, McLean, Harvard Medical Affiliate as follows:
Coaching is an interpersonal process that helps people to achieve positive change and growth. By harnessing innate strengths, uncovering intrinsic motivations, and asking empowering questions, coaching fosters self-generated insight, vision, and goal clarity.
Additionally, Jungian Coaching takes into account the unconscious. Exercising leadership responsibly requires more than just providing a vision, communicating it effectively, mobilizing others to follow, guiding the collective progress and being aware of the obstacles in your path. It also requires deep awareness of both the conscious rational and unconscious emotional elements in individual and collective behavior (Wood 2021).
Put briefly, Jungian leadership coaching is defined as: ‘a professional practice which facilitates the individuation process in organisational contexts’ (O’Brien & O’Brien 2021 p139).
Jungian Coach Training is firmly safeguarded by adherence to the code of ethics, core values and updated competency framework of the International Coaching Federation. Likewise, there are many terms from Jungian clinical practice which have become popular in coaching and in general use. The precise meanings and safe use in coaching are ensured by Jungian coach training being delivered by accredited Jungian analysts.
