Who is Carl Jung?

Carl Gustav Jung was born in 1875, and lived and worked in Switzerland as a psychiatrist. He spent his working years seeing patients, as well as being a pioneer in experimental research in the field. He later specialised in psychoanalysis and developed innovative ways to deal with symptoms, dreams, fantasies and visions.

He is best known for creating the field of analytical psychology, which explored the human psyche and was designed to evolve from Freud's psychoanalytic theories after their seven-year collaboration came to an end in 1912.
