In this presentation Heather will present contemporary neuroscience concepts which parallel and confirm Jung’s theories on the structure of the personality and the individuation process. She will also illustrate with photos of Sandplay images that have spontaneously arisen during therapy. This talk will be informed by both Jungian theory and contemporary neuroscience.
She will outline how science and psyche live as one through the subjective image and what we now know about neuro-plasticity confirming, yet again, that Jung said it first!
Heather Lesley-Swan, Analytic Psychotherapist, is Australia’s first Jungian Sandplay Therapist accredited by the International Society for Sandplay Therapy, an affiliate of IAAP. She is the only Teaching Member of ISST in this part of the world.
Heather’s practice in Sydney employs Jungian Sandplay Therapy for the benefit of those living in the absence of symbolic richness in their own and their families’ lives. It is a powerfully engaging therapeutic technique which facilitates the psyche’s natural capacity for healing, structural differentiation psychological expansion and development of Self. She has a keen interest in contemporary neuroscience which gives her a breadth of professional and clinical experience that is rarely available.
