What’s the difference between a psychotherapist and an analyst?

All psychotherapists, including analysts, go through varied educational and licensing programs according to their degree type. Analysts are licensed psychotherapists who have chosen to undergo a rigorous training beyond the requirements of licensure. This process involves extensive education in Jungian theory and practice including group process and case seminar, years of case consultation, and many years of personal analysis. The purpose of this extensive process is to cultivate and broaden a practitioner’s consciousness of self and to foster an increased depth of therapeutic capacity.
