About Christina

Hi I’m Christina Becker and thanks for wanting to get to know me in a little more depth.

My journey to become a Jungian analyst / psychotherapist arose from my own soul journey. As everyone who enters into therapy, my first experience was to find relief for some suffering or emotional angst. Then the journey took on a different quality as I went deeper and deeper into myself. This eventually took me to C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland.

The C.G Jung Institute (Zurich) is the only institute in the world founded by Carl Gustav Jung. It is the source and the beginning of analytical psychology and still has close connections to the Jung family. It was such a gift to be training less than a km from Jung’s house on Lake Zurich.

Training to be an Jungian analyst was an amazing, exhaustive and intense experience. It offered a special and unique kind of training that consisted of an extensive post graduate academic studies, and a rigorous personal analysis, which is not a requirement for many psychotherapists and psychologists. Being in Zurich for 6 years demanded that I immerse myself in the experience of the soul/psyche away from home and from family and friends. A depth, compassion for suffering and an authentic awareness arose as a result. Upon completion, I was granted a Diploma of Analytical Psychology – a PhD equivalent – and which gave me the designation of Jungian Analyst.

I am devoted to my personal individuation journey and I bring that same devotion to working with my clients. I am passionate about working with people who feel that they are on a quest for something. I call it an ineffable mysterious something. They know that there is something more than the symptoms. They feel called to explore the deeper questions of human existence.

My practice is conveniently located in Roncesvalles Village, in the west end of Toronto. I offer a range of psychotherapeutic and counseling services to meet most people’s needs.

I would love to talk with you more about how I might be able to help you. Go the contact Christina page to request a free 30 minute telephone conversation or to send me an email
