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.


'“Only a girl like this can know
what’s happened to you.
If she were here she would
reach out her arms towards
you now, and touch you
with her absent hands
and you would feel nothing, but you would be
touched all the same”

— Margaret Atwood
