One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.
— C. G. Jung, CW 13, para. 335.

- General Anxiety, PTSD, Social Anxiety, Dissociation
- Loss and Grief of any kind
- Low self-esteem, self-worth, or self-confidence issues
- Unfulfilling and / or continually difficult intimate relationships
- A need for coaching or support — as in beginning or ending school, moving, new job or job loss, loss of relationship, career concerns
- Mid-life difficulty
- Issues in the Third Phase of Life
- Issues repeating, returning in more difficult forms. Stressors of all kinds
- Adult children of self-centered parents or current or former partners / spouse (narcissism) with self-absorbed traits
Overlapping issues or issues not falling neatly into categories.
- Possibility and grace in midlife crises
- A more authentic, fulfilled life
- Living in the present rather than in the future or the past
- Support as you explore what is trying to get your attention.
- Inner issues linked to body issues.
