Dream Work

‘We are such stuff as dreams
are made on’ – The Tempest

For centuries, societies the world over have paid respectful attention to the significance of dreams. For the pioneers of modern psychoanalysis, Freud and Jung, dreams were ‘the royal road to the unconscious’. They still are.

Psyche, within each of us, forges images and dramas in dream. These influence the way we communicate and feel about ourselves during our waking hours. Beneath our everyday interactions lies the symbolic mind, constantly seeking expression. By paying attention to our dreams and to the symbolic messages of the psyche, we gain deeper insight into what our lives are about.

All of us dream, but not all of us remember our dreams and some dreams matter more than others, just as some of our actions matter more than others. Don’t worry if you don’t think you can remember your dreams. Once you decide to pay attention to them, they become easier to recall.

I offer group workshops to people who are interested in learning more about the significance of dreams and symbols in their lives. Please let me know if you would like to receive information about these workshops.


‘When I started working with Tessa I was in the middle of a profound personal crisis. I no longer knew who I was and where I belonged. I urgently needed to get back in touch with my own deep identity, my true Self. Tessa accompanied me on this journey; a guide who helped my essence unfold again in a spontaneous way, providing support through her listening, understanding, and patience. What I value the most in her is her deep understanding of all aspects of being human, including the dark ones, and her knowledge of our Soul and its dynamics’
