About Us

The Australian and New Zealand Society of Jungian Analysts (ANZSJA) is the clinical and professional body of Jungian analysts who offer analysis and psychotherapy throughout Australia and New Zealand.

ANZSJA now has over fifty analysts in its membership who have variously trained in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, USA, Italy and the United Kingdom. These different backgrounds offer a rich cultural diversity to ANZSJA and a sensitivity towards the importance of cultural awareness within our communities. Also reflected within our membership of ANZSJA analysts are the multiplicity of Jungian and post-Jungian approaches to individual analysis and psychotherapy. Many members of our diverse analytic community have specialised experience and certification in related areas of clinical practice such as psychiatry, psychology, relationship therapy, child psychotherapy, art therapy and sandplay therapy.

Some ANZSJA analysts live and work overseas and others make themselves available to the global community for both analysis and supervision.

ANZSJA is a member organisation of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP). Founded in 1955, the IAAP now has 3500 members worldwide and is the accrediting and regulatory organisation for all professional analytical psychology groups. The main objective is to ensure the highest professional, scientific and ethical standards are maintained in the training and practice of analytical psychology among Member Groups. ANZSJA warrants and assures these professional standards and qualifications are attained in Australia and New Zealand.

ANZSJA analysts have made significant contributions to the community. Many of the public interest Jung Societies have been established and maintained by Jungian analysts. Our analysts have involvement in cultural events and productions, become involved in contributing to academic institutions and lecturing internationally, publishing and film making. ANZSJA has the opportunity to offer a bridge in thinking between Western and Eastern analytical ideas as well as making valuable and insightful contributions across the wide range of disciplines that include C.G. Jung in their thinking.

ANZSJA is governed by an Executive Council and has various committees that plan and oversee analytic training, uphold ethical standards, support the membership, and prepare public programs. Along with sustaining an active connection with the IAAP, ANZSJA maintains affiliations with both the Australasian Confederation of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Australia and the Psychotherapists Board of Aotearoa New Zealand (PBANZ). 

ANZSJA is committed to promoting diversity and inclusiveness on the basis of race, religion, ethnic origin and affiliation, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, political orientation, language spoken, age and disability. This policy pertains to the actions of both individual analysts and the organisation including the design and conduct of training programmes, events for the public and other sponsored activities. In pursuit of these objectives, ANZSJA will continue to address the issue of Non-Discrimination by examining its policies and encouraging its members to develop constructive strategies in line with these policies.

ANZSJA welcomes and acknowledges First Nation peoples and their Elders past and present as traditional custodians of their land. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to life. We are mindful of the central actual and symbolic significance of the 1840 New Zealand Treaty of Waitangi/ Te Tiriti o Waitangi, a treaty between the Crown and the Maori people, which uses the principles of partnership, participation, and protection of cultural treasures.
